Hi - am really looking for some advice from the experienced among you. Little background first, because I think it's necessary.
I have never gone abroad because I hate flying. Have decided to say "what the hell" and get a passport. I am 38 in March. All previous holidays have been UK or Eire and with girlfriends or family. However, I have been single for two years now and really want to go on a holiday having not been for last 2 years.
I don't want to fly too far, as someone who hates flying and would be going on my own. I do not earn a lot, so really expensive holidays are out of the question. Similarly, I find the idea of being chucked in with a "group of like-minded people" hideous. These companies have no idea what my mind is like and I pity anyone who has a mind like mine :) I might consider a small group if that group was definitely people in their 30s but which I could escape from if I so wanted. While I have lots of acquaintances older than that, I wouldn't want to holiday with them.
I suppose in an ideal world, I'd go with a friend, but all my friends are coupled, so single it has to be.
Where the heck should I look??? Having read back the above, I should probably not bother, but I'd like to go somewhere this year, I don't want another year of no holiday or weekends in the UK only.
Thanks a lot, any ideas will be much appreciated.
