where to take an 18 year old girl on holiday?

Hi my daughter is 18 years old and her father and I recently broke up. She's really down that she can't go away with her friends as her friends can't afford it or have boyfriends and don't want to and she knows lots of people in her year are going away together. I was thinking it might be nice for her and I to go away together but I was hoping there might be somewhere where she can meet people of her own age and get a bit of independence. Lots of places offer things for below 18s but not 18 so I was wondering if anyone had an idea so she didn't feel lonely. She also is an almost recovered anorexic so anything that's not too food based would be best. Thank you!

Great idea but...

Have you short listed countries please? Budget? Time of year? Weather preferences?

Please give us a bit more to go on so we can offer focussed advice

Tough one zoemccarthy. It's not quite what you asked for but would somewhere special give her bragging rights among her friends?

Somewhere like Venice with the beautiful masks, a gondola ride, a tour of the islands. Shame it's too late for carnival. There are some magnificent fiestas in Spain.

Rather than trying to set her up with strangers which could backfire something special to do with a love of hers like art or dance or sport. Difficult without knowing her interests.

Also it will depend on your budget. If you have just split up with her father will the finances make a difference at this point in time? A short stay in a facinating hotel for instance.
