Goin' solo...nothing like it! (A trip report collection)

I thought it might be a good idea (and because I'm procrastinating like crazy) to gather the Fodors' solo trip reports into one place, so I'll start with mine:

Peru (Amazon rainforest) and Panama City, 2007: http://www.fodors.com/forums/threads...6&tid=35029544

Poland and Lithuania, plus London, 2006: http://www.fodors.com/forums/threads...2&tid=34841274

China, including Tibet and Hong Kong, 2005:

Malta, 2004 (in a "100 Best" format

Vietnam, 2002:

Iceland, 2001 (also in 100 Best format): http://www.fodors.com/forums/threads...=2&tid=1278237

Go for it...traveling solo is a wonderful thing.

What a wonderful idea Amy! This will be one thread that I'll sit my nieces down to read the next time they're here. To follow your lead (and example on identifying the reports):

Ottawa, Toronto, Niagara Falls, Montreal, 2007: http://www.fodors.com/forums/threads...9&tid=35061783

Sorry, I never write trip reports myself, so have nothing to contribute along those lines but want to thank you (Amy) for the idea and getting this thread started.

For the rest of you lovers of adventures alone... let's get together & breathe some life into 'Solo Traveler' forum for the New Year!!

The solo trips I've written a Fodors trip report on:

USA 2007

Japan 2006

Other trips I've done solo - to Japan, Europe and the eastern parts of Australia I've written about in my blog - in reverse oreder. Excuse the typos; they are usually written when tired, against the clock in internet cafes on unfamilair keyboards!
