Travel alone

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone any experience of going away anywhere on your bill and meeting people on their travels?

 

I have a couple of unexpected weeks off work, literally found out at the weekend so too late to plan anything with friends. Just wondered if anyone had done that before?

 

If not I'll have to occupy myself at the gym or something.

I've been doing that most of the time. I can say i'm a solo wanderer. Being here Dubai, which is a multi-cultural and metropolitan country, you can see many places, and visit variety of events, depending on your interests. As an expat, and the only firends i know are workmates, churchmates and housemates, it's a challenge to meet new people.

 

But i'm so glad with the digital technology we have right now, there are already plenty of mobile device where you can meet and chat people on nearby places, and if it feels comfortable you can decide to meet-up offline.

 

Meetup.com website has also been very helpful for me to see and meet groups who are up for interesting discussions. You may try to check in that site if there are organized groups in your area.

 

Meeting new people is always possible when we start going out there and be ready to meet them.

 

Good luck to whatever plan you come-up with. :)

Hey thanks for taking the time to add a comment. I will try and do this one day, even if its for a few days the world is too big to stop visiting new places and like you said run into new people.
