This is my first post so please be kind :)

I am currently saving to go travelling I imagine the back end of next year, I have nothing in place yet. I was meant to be doing this with my boyfriend but we split up and to be honest I'm not sure that he really had the drive to travel anyway and I guess it's better to split up now than when we are away!

So it looks like I will be going it alone. I have read quite a few positive stories about people travelling alone and as much as I am terrified this is something I have to do. I haven't yet broken the news to parents however. Going to wait until I have saved up a bit more money to show I really am determined.

So my name is Sam and I am 24, if you see me looking lost wandering around the boards help would be much appreciated :D hope to get to know more of you as I start planning my trip!

Welcome to TP Sam!!

Don't be afraid to go out there solo....many people do it. Keep searching the Forums and you'll find the info you need!!

Hi Sam

I'm sure you will be fine travelling alone - I did it and loved it! You'll meet plenty of people along the way and it's normally quite easy to hook up with other travellers if you don't want to be alone.

Hope to see you around the forums. :)

Hey SamFrog,
I can tell you most definitely that this is the place to be if you want to go travel on your own.
There are so many people on TP who have posted really invaluable information on the subject and even if your questions are not answered there, just post a note in the forums and someone will get back to you.

So Welcome along, and savour the whole planning part of your travels as much as the travelling itself.
