There is nothing wrong with traveling / vacationing by yourself . It seemed weird the first time I did. It can be a bit more expensive as everything is based on double occupancy. Though more companies are catering towards singles. Since being divorced I traveled more in the last 5 years than I did in 14 years of marriage. Now I am thinking of either a cooking or a painting vacation. For example you go some place like southern France , under the guidance of professional chef , you tour the farms , markets , vineyards , etc , learn how to properly pick , buy , prepare and cook your meal. You do have free time and you end up with a cook book . Now that is way to experience a different culture or through arts, painting is pretty much the same. That to me is why one travels to broaden one's mind , not clog it with old wine and younger women or men as the case may be though there is nothing wrong with that either .
