Default Going on vacation on your own

I'm single and I couldn't synchronize my schedule with any of my friends this year.
So it's either I spend my vacation days at home or go somewhere on my own.
What do you guys think? Would you go on vacation in such conditions? Would you find it depressing?
I'm a bit of an introvert, so I'm not really counting on making friends with complete strangers.

Any ideas?

Why depressing? Going on your own can be great - you make your own schedule, do what you want and when you want, complete freedom of choice.

It depends on where you go, but it wouldn't be depressing imo, I think it would kinda cool doing so, wouldn't face much problems with the schedule and stuff like that.

If you are really from Romania, come to our seaside, you will enjoy, there is everything here, places for chilling and for parties.

Try couchsurfing and hostels-- and you won't be always alone during the trip.

I traveled a lot both ways: alone and with someone, and I can see why the first one might be depressing. Especially if it's longer than just a weekend trip.

I assume you mean Bulgaria. I'm considering it. It's cheaper than Romania, but I had the feeling Bulgaria is more familly oriented.

I went to mountain-climbing trips on my own before. Sleeping in a tent. But I'm a bit of a mountain nut, so I don't really feel alone while climbing. But I'm looking for something less pysically demanding this time.
OTOH, I can't really picture myself going to the seaside alone, lieing on the beach all day alone, going to clubs alone. I get stressed just thinking about the possibility. It freaks me out.

Never tried staying in hostels. Might give it a try. Thx.

Absolutely no.

I never did a vacation alone, but I would love do to one! Just on your own, you can do whatever you want, it would be cool in my opinion.

Default Re: Going on vacation on your own

There is a ton of freedom with going anywhere alone. What kind of things are you interested in apart from Mountains? You could go to big cities like Bangkok, Bogota or New York, and go on tours or theme parks and mingle with the locals and other tourists, so you don't feel so alone (I personally enjoy not having anyone I know around for a few days, but I get how some folks find it depressing).

Though, I'd say if you're going on your own, it's best to go to an English speaking country or a country where you understand the language. Otherwise the loneliness factor goes through the roof.

Well, it depends what exactly do you want. If you want to go to a mountain, you could simply cross over to Serbia, there are plenty of mountains which are not really demanding, Kopaonik, Zlatibor, Tara etc. On the other hand, if you want something more urban this time you could visit Budapest, Prague, Vienna etc, you can do plenty of sightseeing/museums etc. on your own, plenty of things to keep you occupied and you don't need company.
