You'll be fine. Don't stay in a hotel as you'll meet nobody. Stay in a hostel and you'll have so many people wanting your company you'll have to choose!

Hi Matt,

I'm planning on doing similar later in ther year (3 months in new zealand then 12-24 months in oz) i too will be going alone and it is very dounting but after reading on here for the last few months its seems as many (if not more) people go alone as people who go with someone else and once your there you'll never be alone as you'll meet up with other travellers.

Yip bit the bullet and just do it, you will never be alone, because there will be people in the same boat as you and plus when people see you alone they will make an effort to be your friend, if only for 1 night but that's the joys of travelling you will meet so many people. Don't worry about it at all, I've travelled alone many times and loved every minute of it. So don't fret about it. Just stay in a hostel and if you don;t like the first one you stay in, change it, plus if you stay in dorms, people will defo talk to you, unless your weird and a freak , Enjoy
