    Yes. I went to Budapest in May. I travel alone because I have no friends and no girlfriend. You get used to doing things alone very easily.

    I had a lot of fun. Beautiful city and great food. Super cheap too. If you start to feel lonely or negative, alcohol is the only friend you need.

          But how do you guys know what to do or where to go?
          I've traveled with my friends and my parents they always knew what to do and stuff, but when you are by yourself it's overwhelming and depressing once you think about it.

          Is this place just filled with larpers or gigachads? How the fuck do you know what to do, last time I just spent 3 weeks in a hotel eating fast food and watching anime. Got so depressed I just went home early because I couldn't figure out anything to do in europe.

            You can look on the internet for interesting things to do and on Youtube for ideas. There is also couchsurfing

            There is also the philosophy of not planning anything because that's when everything happens!

            Here is an example from Taiwan in 2017
            I had arrived the day before in Taichung and I had no plan when I woke up that Friday morning.
            At the last moment, I find a CS accommodation for the same evening and am invited by another CS host for a cooking lesson at 7pm on Saturday with her children and her neighbors. They also tell me "Well, on Sunday we're going to accompany our son to Lukang for a rollerblading competition and then we're going to visit the city, do you want to join us?"
            That's it, a very busy weekend even though I hadn't planned anything

                Yup, it may sound naive but it's really what drives me on my travels. It comes naturally to me.
                Don't rent a cabin for a week, for example, unless it's in the middle of a long trip of several months and it's a week off. I know that those who travel around the world need this kind of rest time.

                This doesn't exclude the fact that you can get some information beforehand, either by watching videos or asking for advice from other travelers in order to have good plans or simply to say to yourself "this looks like fun, I'll go there" and sometimes go off the beaten track.

            I usually make a plan of places to visit and spend the days walking around the city and checking places out/trying new food.
            Last time I stayed in a hostel and made some friends there. One guy I got along with really well ended up joining me for the rest of the trip and we checked out places we both wanted to see together.
            Just don't be afraid to try new things. Of course if you're going to get a single room in a hotel and lock yourself in it then you're gonna be alone. You gotta present yourself to these opportunities.

            I will always recommend hostels for single male travelers. It's an amazing way to meet people with a similar mind as yours. If you're in your 20s then it's ideal to make friends or pick up sloots, but you'll see the occasional boomer there as well who gets along with everyone and has a lot of wisdom to share

              do you have some tips on how to make new friend with a group of people at hostels? when I ty to enter the social circle I always feel awkward as I'm the stranger in the group. Most of the time the topics they discuss is about what they did before so I couldn't jump in and I ended up just sipping my drinks until it's time to sleep and then it's just getting harder to act as if I'm their friends.

                I am a bit of a gigachad but I always interrupt with my own stories that have common ground. Then I get my cock out and suggest we have a cock rate. Generally I'll get between 7 and 9 ratings and I'll begin asking the girls and the uglier/more masculine men to leave. Within about 2 hours it's me and 3 feminine/socially weak men staring at my penis and really it goes from there.

                Really depends, but usually the best way to start talking is to ask a simple question and see where the conversation goes. Also check the vibe of the hostel beforehand, some are really social oriented while others are just a place to crash.

            You don’t have to larp or be a Chad to plan like 4-7 days. You plan globally imo. Book the hotel(s), do like three big tourist attractions per day. Download local taxi apps, uber or electric scooters, walk etc. Taxis save you time because you dont need to plan the routes that much. I love anime too dude but I’ve never once watched TV on a holiday. Waste of time and something you could do at home. Meeting new people and places is the stuff you should be doing.

            Good advice. How do you specifically find single male hostels? Google? I know they have specific ones for women but I didn’t know there were male only ones.

            Also isn’t fucking there weird since you’re sleeping in a room with other people? Plus I heard the sound of most beds already made noise when you enter. Personally I prefer a slightly more expensive cheap hotel where I least have my privacy. I can make friends during nightlife or tourist shit

            I always wanted to try couchsurfing once. Is it weird for a guy to do? In the sense that the host family feels safe to do so? Since you’re a woman they might feel safer around you. Then again the reverse is true for you, you could feel more unsafe than a male guest. How did that feel? Also would you recommend couch surfing in Japan? I wanted to try it there and I assume the cs hosts are more outgoing and english speaking than average Japanese.

            What do you mean? You can do the things people do with others, such as visit museums and historical sites try food ect, just general tourist stuff. I like just walking around random cities. I go to shows or simply just go into a random bar and drink. If your staying in a hostel it's easy to ask others where to go and many times you can find people to go out with. I personally love cycling and many times will rent a road or mountain bike and go to some of the roads and trails, so this will fill up a lot of my time and give me something to do. After a 5 hour hard bike ride it's quite easy to just relax. In fact, much of my traveling has been inspired by visiting amazing cycling destinations, especially in Europe and America. Beyond this I also use meetup.com to find people to play volleyball with, it's a good way to meet locals and there is usually other nationals there as well. Some days are spent lonely wandering around museums but many times I have met others and had fun in different cities. I am autistic though and have issues with connection so I have never made any long term friends

        I only ever travel alone. Presumably because nobody would want to be almost exclusively in my presence for so long.
        Tbh, I prefer it. I can do what I want, see what I want, etc. No compromises.
        The only negative aspect to this is anyone else who I may travel with could suggest sites to see that I may have overlooked.

      to answer op. yes, i only travel alone internationally. you get to do whatever you want, and i actually find it easier to strike up conversations with people when you have no choice but to do it. the only thing that is harder is planning. you have to do all the planning yourself unless you want to do a paid tour which, aha, no. that can be kind of stressful.

      Hostels indeed. You just wake up, sit next to some people for brekky, shoot the shit, and then invite them to go to xyz today. Everyone is there to go see the big sights at least, so they are probably already planning on heading there anyways. Enjoy the day then agree to meet back later for dinner/bars. At this point you are bros/fucking so then see if they want to come with to the next destination. Don't be clingy.

Did it suck? Yeah. But they were assholes who just wanted me gone to fuck a girl that was in to me. One week later I'm on the beach hanging out with friends that I would end up visiting in Europe later. Find your group.

    Literally every holiday since I left high school, I'm 33 now. It's not great. I have a hard time socializing in general but when you are in a completely unknown place without speaking the language...I have had that moment where I looked around and thought: what the fuck am I doing here. I don't care about art or nature either so all I can do is go to big cities and wait for the bars to open so I can talk with drunks and get drunk myself.

    I go out alone near where I live sometimes, but I'm somewhat familiar with the area. I make friendly when I'm out with the bartender, bouncer, etc. Sometimes I meet girls that way. But IMO its 10x easier to meet girls when you're already with a girl. I get attention when I go out alone if I'm dressed well but if I'm with my girl it's a lot easier (fuck kek). Also you can chill with other couples and you can kinda talk to the guy a little which is nice. I wouldn't go to a foreign country alone unless I really had nobody to go with. I like to talk about shit with people and with no company I feel like travel would be boring

      Try Tinder. You get to talk to (sometimes) nice local women or tourists and fuck them. I like politics and history and unironically met a random anti-immigration (Syrians) politician through this girl who did volunteering work for their party. Really ironic actually because she was a Turkish nationalist and I’m a Dutch nationalist.

        You just get in and order. I've done this in multiple countries and never had any issues.

        my brother are you 14 or some shit? I just go and eat.

        It's definitely happened to me as a lone Asian male traveller in Europe. I only speak English and they'd ramble a bunch of shit I don't understand in my face and act rudely. Not that it's their fault that they don't speak English but they're obviously not very welcoming to tourists like me

          You know how common this shit is in Asia against foreigners? Quit complaining, you should be grateful Europe even let you in after the past two years, most Asian countries are only just now returning visa reciprocity. Racist, xenophobic fucks. Asia is the most racist continent on the planet, even before COVID many businesses would just straight up deny foreigners from entering. Europe can’t hold a candle to racism in Asia.

      Is this an American or French thing? What’s wrong with eating out by yourself? The only single thing I think is awkward is going to a movie theater but even that I could do tbh.

      Seriously those sound like some had restaurants if they don’t serve you. Literally losing money on a unused table

        It can't be an American thing. In America the wageslave waiter would be fired on the spot for not profitmaxxing.

          I would love to travel to the USA and larp as a slave master during a restaurant visit. From what I read from Americans restaurant workers are the closest things to slaves who are forced to live on tips. I also heard blacks don’t tip which is surprisingly based to me. The tipping culture in the US seems absolutely retarded. Tipping should be done after an excellent service, not because a waiter brings you food and drinks. For delivery drivers I usually just give them a can of cola which they all appreciate in the current weather.
          Is it true supermarket cashiers don’t have chairs to sit on and have to bag your groceries? Sounds like such an unneeded uncomfortable part of their job.

            Don't knock tips, most waiters in the US actually like them because you can get a lot of money, a couple hundred per shift even especially if you're cute and female. Customer facing workers in the US are expected to be good at their jobs though. Service is expected to be good at minimum. It's like the only requirement for your job is one thing- being good with people but for some reason europeans find that concept difficult.
            Nigs, garden gnomes and Asians don't tip much but it isn't philosophical. They just don't want to give you their money.
            >Is it true supermarket cashiers have chairs to sit on and have to bag your groceries?
            Yes but the supermarket cashiers in Europe seemed incredibly lazy to me. It's not a job for lazy people here, it's very physical, you have to come out lift heavy items like our huge cases of soda to scan them then put them back in the cart, but pays pretty well.

              I understand the American perspective. Most of Western Europe finds it barbaric that waiters NEED tips to survive instead of getting a normal wage from their boss. And no its not just muh socialists. I’m the most right wing person itt I would guess.
              Another reason but that’s just me personally, is that I don’t like the ‘fake’ American politeness ir service. The overaggerated smiles and how areeeeee youuuu. Basically when I’m with other people I want to talk to them, not the servants. I want them to refill me drinks when they are empty, sure, but not when they’re not. Just don’t bother me every minute.

              Again that’s the stereotype I read, I still need to experience it irl but thats what Americans tell me. Thar European waiters are quite rude to then in their opinion. Especially the Dutch ones kek. I think people here just tend to admit that the customer is not always king and thar workers should be treated like humans. It’s not a surprise all the fighting videos in fast food / restaurants mostly come from the usa. Then again it’s usuallt black people but I also see a lot of Karens so plenty of whites doinf it too.

                It's weird that europeans latch onto this one thing because people who work at restaurants seem to like getting tips. The alternative would be like a $16/hr base pay which is well above minimum wage but worse since you easily make more than that in tips as long as you're decent at it and your restaurant doesn't suck. And you'd get taxed more since under-reporting of tips is widespread. There's some inherent unfairness in that attractive people get tipped better and restaurants are randomly busy or slow but not being paid tips wouldn't change much since US employment is "at will" meaning you can be fired at any time, for any reason. You can also legally be sent home early from your shift if the restaurant is slow and don't get paid for the time you're not there. So even if you don't need tips to survive, you're still at the mercy of customers and your boss.

                The things I would say that actually suck about working in the US is that paid time off is nothing like what you have. It isn't mandatory. Some places will give you 10 days or 2 weeks as a "bonus" after working there a year or 2 but not everywhere does. The idea that a low-end job like restaurant worker would give you a few weeks off a year and still pay you for it is completely unheard of. There's also no requirement that you get holidays off or paid more for working on them.

                As someone who worked at a restauarant, yes.
                Opposition to tipping rarely comes from people who actually work as tipped employees.
                It's always faggy coastal intellectuals who never had to do real work.
                Waiter is one of the best "unskilled" jobs you can do.
                At minimum I picked up $100 a night. Some nights were like $400. That was getting lucky but you'd never see that money if you weren't getting tips. And in cash.

            This is mostly a myth perpetuated by people who work in the industry in order to guilt customers into giving them free money. All waiters in the US are guaranteed minimum wage by law, state or federal, whichever is highest, if their wage+tips totals any less than the minimum wage. Sure, some restaurant owners are scumbags and don't abide by the law, but that isn't the customers problem. That is a problem between the employee and the employer, and the employee is welcome to find a job somewhere else.

            When you point out the above to waiters or people who have drank the koolaid, their response is that minimum wage is not a livable wage. That may be true, but making minimum wage does not mean you are entitled to handouts. Nobody tips minimum wagies at McDonalds or Walmart despite them not making a livable wage

    I traveled to Ecuador on a whim recently because it was the cheapest flight to South America that I could I find that left the next day. I spent 5 days there, walked to every significant place in Quito, hiked up some of the mountains around the city (very intense considering the city is already at 9000 feet and then you go another 2000 up - it gets harder to breathe), fucked a local woman for free (she was cute), fucked a prostitute for $10 (she was gross - I regret this), and ate Ecuadorian food (horrible). In total I walked about 70 miles over those 5 days and say literally everything in there is in the city of Quito, including slums, which I literally just walked directly into (during the day tho) and no one bothered me in the slightest.

    Overall I would not recommend going there. The women are generally fat and unnattractive (I am literally American and even to me they seemed weirdly overweight) and the city is basically a typical low-tier SA capital. Bogata was far better.

    I travel alone all the time and almost always have a good time.

    So far as I'm concerned, the recent influx of "only losers travel alone" threads are made by sighseelets who've probably never left their own state. I've visited at least 60 countries, and I meet solo travelers almost everywhere I go. There's absolutely nothing unusual about it. The only people who might think you're "weird" are aged Boomers and and kids on package tours.

    Sort of cliché, but you're never really "alone" unless you want to be (provided you're not an aspie, ofc). Hostels and such are always full of other solo travelers. You can find people to chill and explore with by just fucking existing and being halfway friendly.

      Yes it happens, just need to learn to power through, or to randomly talk to random people until someone is willing to speak with you. I mostly power through as I'm a social retard, but every few days someone strikes up a convo and that alleviates the loneliness.

    When I was stationed in Bahrain, I took a trip to Oman for a weekend. I got a driver to take me to Wadi Shab, hiked all day, then went back to Muscat. Passed out in a frigid hotel room for a few hours, then rode out the night at a hookah place. The next day I checked out Old Muscat and the sound. Hung out and people-watched for a few hours.

    The only downside is that solo driving + doing hikes/outdoors stuff non-stop for a full week is very tiring.
