Travel  journalist, Dot Whittington, is an old hand at solo travel and shares her adventures.

Travelling alone is great fun once you overcome the initial fear of taking on the world by yourself.

If you’re nervous about going alone, use a cruise or an organised tour to get a taste of the joy of travelling independently but in company.

Once you are feeling confident, decide where you want to go, keep an eye out for bargains, book online and off you go. Travelling by yourself is fun and easy – and you often get the best seats.

Make new friends along the way.   Why should young people have all the fun?  The world is your oyster.


Nervous about heading out into the big wide world on your own? It’s all good fun.
