Morocco, Greece or Sicily in winter...that old chestnut!
I'm really starting to obsess now. I'm leaving my little business and my flat behind in order to travel solo for a year come this Christmas. It's all I can think about and the lines are becoming blurred. I could use some help from other solo artists to decide where to head in January for the start of the adventure. I'm definitely aiming for something a little more extreme than Spain or Portugal. I was initially thinking of Sicily having already spent a few months wintering in Greece in 2009 - but I could also see myself back in Finikounda! Morocco has been a dream for a long time but will I get the most out of it as a female travelling alone? And will my dog be safe and welcome? Is there enough in Sicily to keep me interested for a couple of months? Other suggestions?
A little background:
I'm a seasoned motorhomer - very confident late-40s female with a small dog who provides great company and loves travelling as much as I do. I like immersing myself in local culture and always try to learn as much of the local language as my brain allows. Happy to wild camp and use aires/sostas (dislike crowded campsites but love small, simple ones too), don't necessarily need wall-to-wall sunshine but appreciate a little winter heat. I do enjoy meeting up with the occasional English speaking campers - they were few and far between as I was travelling around Greece and Italy in the middle of winter!
So that is the crux of it - would love to hear from anyone, especially soloists about their winter travels in those areas and perhaps others that I've overlooked.
Hope to hear from you!
Patience is the companion of wisdom...
