Avoid boredom when traveling solo

Several seasoned travelers weigh in on how they avoid being bored or lonely when traveling solo. One response:
“You might feel less like a tourist if you rented an apartment instead of staying in a hotel or B&B. Although at a B&B you might get to talk to other guests at breakfast. I tweet and blog (used to send emails to a list) which helps me feel like I’m having a conversation. You might also go on some of the London Walks – you might hook up with a fellow-traveler for dinner or drinks that way.” –thursdaysd, Fodors.com member
