Traveling alone is a great way to find yourself—and meet other people when you get sick of that company. Budget Travel passes along advice from experienced soloers:

  1. You'll be carrying your own bags, so pack clothes that can do double duty.
  2. Leave your iPod at home—you'll meet more people.
  3. Stay in city centers.  Out-of-the-way hotels can feel solitary.

  1. Text message to stay in touch and stave off loneliness.
  2. Leave a note with your front desk when dining with strangers. 
  3. Eat at restaurant bars or communal tables to meet others.
  4. If cruising, choose a ship with assigned dinner seating to make friends.
  5. Sunglasses are excellent for people watching and looking mysterious.
