    Wow, can I first say, what a great site. Been sitting here for two days reading loads of blogs and it is most helpful. Have been MH for many many years now, but it looks like the next time I will be a lass on her own. I think to have this on my laptop will be great and very useful. Not sure how to get a photo in my little box or how you become a funster but I am sure someone will let me now. I hope any of you won't mind if I tick to follow your forums if I think they will help with tips and info. Cheers for now, Sonya.

    Hi Sonya. Lots of us here travel alone. I full timed ( totally unintentionally and unplanned!) for almost 2 years and loved every minute.
    It's well worth paying the £10 or so to join. Click on the 3 little lines to the right of Events and click on subscribe.

    Well thank you everyone, I now know (not now - as in my first mess) how to add photo, so will do that soon. Also, I am still green, haha, now understand what that means, think it will be £10.00 well spent.
    Cheers everyone.

    While this discussion over whether you have paid or not goes on may I slip in a big welcome!
    But ignore the banter, all part of the charm of this site. :)

    "Do I take the plunge and go alone?"

    well yes of course you must! why else would you have ended up on here!:)

    ask yourself whats the alternative...

    many solo travelers on here..a couple of first timer ladies in Europe as we speak, having a wail of a time wondering what all the worry and fuss was about..this a very supportive site

    Hi and Welcome from Thebus (the bus) Phoebe (the dog) and Me (Sue)

    I travel "alone" having never done anything like this before. Started out in Jan 2014 not knowing whether I would even like it. So far have been to the North of North Shetland, Lands End, The Westernmost inhabited Western Isle and nearly got to the Easternmost tip at Lowestoft Ness and many many places in between

    If I can get my act together am now off to cross the water to the Continent. If you have the time and inclination there is lots of stuff about what I did and how I felt on my blog. :)

    Still loving every minute and no intention of returning to 'bricks and mortar' in the foreseeable :)

    A good bit of banter egh? Not sure why everyone says £10 as it is £15, but that is still good value. And thank you DBK, feeling part of a huge family already.
