Solo travel - is this is the only option for me?

I had been planning to go to Canada in 2009 with a friend. She is now threatening to pull out of travelling due to money worries. I still really want to go to Canada with or without her. Have others faced the idea of solo travel, and what did they do?

I mean, when I was with my ex I would have travelled with him (obviously). Now 2 years after the split, I am ready to travel (really need to travel)and as he has already agreed to look after our children full time while I'm gone, this is an opportunity to good to miss!!

I don't fall into the 18-35 youth market (I'm 39), and don't want to sit on a bus looking at churches with a bunch of people who all have artifical hips and blue rinses, but everyone I know in my age group is either married (so would travel with their partner & family) or not interested in travel at the moment.

So, people, any suggestions as to how I find myself a travel buddy??? I don't care if it's male or female, just someone who is interested in going to similar places to me.

Regards to all
Curious M.

im 25 and i have lots of friends of all ages who travel all over the world by themselves, you will make friends as you go along, i think that you could enjoy it more when you go alone because you can do all the things that you want to do. i would NEVER fear being alone!as long as your prepared to meet and make new friends. dont bother with all these 18-30 clubs or anyother club of that sort, just do it alone and and meet other people out there who are doing the same thing along the way.

Hi Curiousmiss
I am newly separated & just about to start mediation. There is no going back. HOWEVER my (soon to be ex) wife & I have (or is it had?) very different interests - we would always have a family holiday together & we would have a separate holiday each. I have been on a number of holidays as a solo traveller & relly enjoyed them- try exodus- the first was really daunting but you are generally travelling with a bunch of like minded people who are up for a good time. Relax & enjoy!!
