Traveling Solo....Get Bored?

Jump to last reply

I thought I would post this on this board and not the Europe board because I thought it was more appropriate as a “travel tips” as opposed to a “destination”. Besides, I know I can count on regulars Suze and Toadtoes for insight.

I’ve had this idea for several years now of going to London and staying there for 2-3 weeks. My question is a little odd in that I’m not so much wondering what to do – there’s a 1000 things to do and I can read the guide books – it’s wondering will I get bored doing it?

Let me clarify. As a solo traveler, I’m completely comfortable going to London. I want to experience more than just the 4-5 days usual trip there (been there many times) but I’m a little afraid I’ll get bored of being a tourist for that length of time. I know maybe that sounds crazy, but that’s my concern. Bored in London? I love London, but I love pumpkin pie too and that’s doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to eat a whole one each night.

Any thoughts from other solo travelers who taken extended trips and have had similar concerns?

As always, many thanks in advance.
