Many travellers prefer to travel alone. You have more freedom: you can do whatever you want, or just relax when you don't feel like doing anything, without worrying about someone else's plans.

As you travel, you will probably meet a lot of other travellers, who you can hang out with. Especially if you stay in the cheaper hostels, where the backpackers congregate. If you really don't want to travel alone, you could join a tour group (although personally I'd rather go it alone- it's more of an adventure that way!)

Not really, but I'm sure there are others that feel like you do. I travel a lot and would never let not having someone else to go along stop me from a trip. There are trade-offs between having a travel companion and going on your own. While it's nice to have someone to share experiences and help make the decisions, if you're on your own, you can see and do exactly what interests you. You also have the flexibility to divert from your plan if something catches your attention.

If you're really interested in traveling with a companion, there are always organized tours or the travel companion websites where you can find someone who wants to go to the same places. On occasion, I have met people along the way to share some or all of a trip with.

"... I have recently decided I want to travel the world but no one will come with me..."

================================

That is NO reason not to travel. Since you're a new, inexperienced traveller who's very nervous to venture out on your own (perfectly understandable) then simply choose a destination that is full of other people exactly like you.

Thailand is one example. It's completely foreign, yet it has an excellent backpacker infrastructure in place and there are thousands and thousands of brand new travellers just like you. It is VERY simple to find travel companions.

Bottom line: Just go. Leaving by yourself is NOT an excuse.

Have fun.

Cheers,
Terry
