Here I am in Bitche in France, on my own, have been for just over a week and it's been raining for the last 6 hours, which after reading, listening to music and the compulsory motorhomers nap got me thinking. I'm a single traveller, not looking for a partner, according to my ex hell has got to get a lot colder for that to happen! but wouldn't it be nice to be with some like minded people to shoot the breeze with. I know couples are fine but when bored they can go back to their van with each other.
So here's the idea if a group of you are interested we go away somewhere for a week in October, I'm a member of the CC and C&CC so we can use any of their sites and annoy them by only being a single person. If enough of us get on then next year we try a two week holiday somewhere. My only requirements are to be able to walk, cycle or catch public transport somewhere. Also I'm thinking that we don't do everything together, travel separately, sight see separately unless it suits us to do otherwise, true motorhomefun style.
Anyone interested? You don't have to be single, just camp that way, I have a vision of Last of the Summer Wine but I want to be Compo!

I am a retired widower,and I mainly camp alone ,and yes sometimes I do get bored with my own company and wish I was with another person ,male or female.just to chew the fat and put the world to right. I belong to a singles camping club but its a .little too organised for me at their rallies I prefer to go my own way . I would love to meet up with others on my travels even if its just for the day.I am a boring person ,don't drink ,don't smoke and have given up women .haha.

That's a pity cos I would love my mum to find another man who doesn't drink or smoke. Hope she doesn't read this or ive had it :)

I think it's a brilliant idea, as long as you can choose when you want your own company and to be alone .... I can't do it at the moment but I am sure there are lots of singles out there who would love to go abroad with a group. When the time comes I would be too scared to do the first trip without a leader in front of me... Hope you get answers to this. Either way hope it bumps up and up again until it is standard.

I'm afraid I could only do uk. I wouldn't trust Boris mechanically to cope with more. Also my hounds would have to come..

Has anybody come up with dates and venues for a solo travellers' holiday yet because I wouldn't want to miss out or are we all putting our name badges upsidedown at Malvern and meeting together to discuss a plan there ?
