Traveling solo through France and the UK

Jump to last reply

Hello all you wonderful travelers out there. I am starting to plan my first solo trip to Europe and I am so excited. I want to do two weeks in the middle of August. I'm a female and I will be celebrating my 28th birthday while I'm there! It's kind of my big gift to myself.

I was thinking of starting in Paris, spending a weekend there, then up to London for about a week, finally to Scotland for a couple days in each Edinburgh and Glasgow.

I am still undecided on whether I want to do hostels (so I can maybe make some traveling friends since I'll be alone) or hotels (because I like the luxury of hotels) or what would be a good location (neighborhoodwise) would be to stay in (especially for London because I'll be there the longest)

I do plan on taking trains from each city, if I can I'll do a sleeper train from London to Edinburgh because I believe that is the longest journey.

Anyway, if any of you have any tips on ANYTHING, the places I'm thinking of going, traveling alone, getting to and from the trains, weather in the UK in August, anything, I'd be happy to listen to your advice. Thanks.
