I think to feel better with the second option. I feel like I need healing and a good environmental situation may really help working things out

OK, Isolation with nature.
Hot or cold?
Long haul fight or stay in Europe?
Budget?

Places like Borneo have remote areas, with the turtle beaches and Orangutan survival centres etc.
Actually all of S.E.Asia has remote nature spots, as does India.

Spain and Portugal have some pretty remote areas.
If the weather was better (at this time of year) Bavaria/Tirol have some amazing hiking, but not right now unless you want frostbite.

Don't know if you have to work for a living or inherited or won money to keep you in a lifestyle you are accustomed to.

-

Get a job with an airline company as a flight attendant or even a pilot if you have the skills.

After you have some experience behind you you can ask for international routes. Then you will be traveling a lot and meeting new people. Even traveling for free at times when off the clock.

Don't fall for the first dirtbag you come across because you are lonely!

Up to you.

I have been working since high school and never paid university because of scholarships, this is how I managed to save money, and my lifestyle is easily affordable ;)

I would just like to highlight the fact that it is not about feeling lonely (I still have family and friends), more about the need of a spiritual restart - which is good for going on with a positive mental attitude.

That is pretty tasteless. I don't know how to flag you for deletion or I would

Yeah, he did come across as a bit of a predatory scumbag. Deleted. :)

You might seriously consider the suggestion above to do volunteer work. There are all kinds of volunteer jobs from medical, secretarial, labor, construction, teaching, whatever your particular talent might be. You have something to do that keeps you busy, you meet inspiring people and on your off days, you visit local sights so will see new things; and you get a new outlook on life.

You can do a search for "European volunteer opportunities;" contact organizations like Doctors Without Borders or contact local churchs including your own if you have one. You don't have to be a member of any of these to be cheerfully accepted as a volunteer.

Good luck. Believe me, you are better off than you were before and you will soon know that.

Last time I broke up with someone, I went to our local watering hole and got drunk a couple times before hitting the mental reset button and going on with my life. Since then, I haven't dated anyone and done a lot of traveling everywhere and have had a great life. Probably didn't help you,(probably don't want to get drunk either) but thought you might like to hear what another random person did.

When my father died in October 1973, after 41 years of marriage when they were rarely appart, my mother did not want to go to any of the places where they had spent a lot of time together. There was a trip to Australia in October of 1974 and she went on that trip. The following year she was home in October, and it was so painful to be there at the time my dad died that she vowed never to be home in October again. She spent one October at a language school in southern France, she went to China, and Kenya, and India and England and Mexico, and Egypt and after awhile she was healed enough to be able to go back to Germany where she and my dad had often traveled.
