    I travelled alone last year and had a wonderful time but it was lonely at times.
    I was told that there are other solo women motorhomers but did not meet any . It would be great to hook up with people along the way , either to travel together for a while or just meet up in places of shared interest .

    I don't know when you are setting off but I plan to set off next month to Spain then Portugal on the 11th. If that fits in with your plans let me know.

    I'm not going until later on, probably December or January . I haven't got any fixed plans . I know as soon as the cold and rain sets in I will want to be in warmer climes !

    I really wanted to meet up with solo women -but you are the only female response so far. Are the men on this site honourable ? . I don't want any hassle .

    I'm sure you will get contacts from women - several who have posted that they want to do the same as you. As for the Funster men being honourable, the ones I have met seem to be...!

    I'm off to the C&CC rally at La Manga on the 27th January for 70 nights. I didn't want to just tour for my first long stint abroad as I know there's lots of solos there.
    As for all the single men on Fun I'd trust them all with my sister but not my wallet :LOL:

    @Alfieplustwo .. is this the kind of trip you are interested in. . ?

    @daved2524 .. @middle east driver are just two honourable travellers abroad I have met on the forum meets and are very honourable .. there are many, many more but I don't know their forum names.

    Sadly, as in any large group of people, you nèed to be very careful and there are those to be wary of .. I really hope some of the ladies hurry up and come forward .. I personally think this the best way for you to try. .

    I am not going abroad .. my hope is to achieve Cornwall .. I am not that adventurous .. I love this country.. otherwise I would love to have accompanied you.

    PS ...and @Clive is ADORABLE. :)

    Got to thinking about my post, I said we are honourable, I cant vouch for anyone else as I have not met them, but feel sure as long as you get to know people you may be at ease, be better if another female was with you and if you had any trouble I am sure a male/female MH would help sort things out,
    Personally and I am not being condescending I don't like the
    idea of females travailing by them self’s, I would not let my wife do it unless she was with others of good standing. driving trucks around Europe I know the score some people very helpful others not,
