Advice For Going Solo?

I'm a 28 year old lad, and my girlfriend has left me!

Anyway I've got a VW California for 3 weeks in Summer and as it stands, I'll be going solo!

I've got a ferry booked from Plymouth to Santander one way, and would like to make my way back up to the Hoek of Holland over three weeks. I have no other plans yet. Well, I did have plans, but they were mostly her ideas?


Any tips? Any places where a singleton male should visit? Or should I stick to my original plans?

Thanks

Simon

Stick to your original plans - it's a long time 'til summer and there are some smashing young women out there - some of them would even enjoy 3 weeks in a VW!

If you don't meet anyone then go solo and take it a day at a time.

Good luck whichever way.

Eurocamp

Try some Eurocamp / Canvas / Keycamp / Thomson Alfresco sites on your trip.

Many of these sites tend to be run by younger Couriers, many of varying Nationalities. You might get in with a few of them But even then, you might feel a tad old as some can be just teenagers.

There again, you might not end up coming home, for a while at least.

This lad did some solo travelling (although did appear to have lots of friends coming to see him etc) - might be worth a read through:

At your age! Stay solo, follow the sun or scenery and party.
But stay safe and have a good time.

Thanks for your comments folks. I think I'll stick to a similar plan that I had to begin with, but will tweak it to spend a couple of days at the Nurburgring instead to meet some friends

I hope I don't have another girl by then, as I need a break from them I think!

28 and single - you lucky sod!

Now go away and enjoy yourself, there's plenty of time left to get chained down permanently
