I started traveling solo because my friends couldn’t and I didn’t want to wait around anymore. I’ve been on so many solo trips no, met so many new friends, and have never been lonely while traveling! I find it’s so much easier to meet people (bc it’s easier to be approached and you’re also more likely to go outside of your comfort zone and chat with strangers). Hostels are a great way. Even if you don’t stay at the hostel, you can attend their events! Walking tours, bar crawls, etc are my favorite and go to’s. There are also Facebook groups you can join too and see if anyone wants to meet up! :)

Depends on your preferences, but I'm not a fan of hostels and don't find socializing with strangers very enjoyable. I love alone time, even if some travel things are easier with a buddy or group. When I need a bit of interaction, I book a short experience/day tour, look up events, do a homestay with a local host, seek out friends of friends in the city, etc.

I travel solo. Sometimes planned by myself, other times on a tour. Beach vacation are perfect for a girls trip. Plan something in advance with your friends next time. Or even rotate and travel with best friends, close friends, the person you travel best with. Sometimes the person you travel well with isn't your best friend (and vice versa).

I’m a friend in relationship and I was really sad that one of my friends didn’t invite me to a girl trip she planned. Friends with SO still want to spend times with their girls!

I travel solo, I find road trips or all inclusive the easiest and most fun. National parks, spas, packaged trips abroad ….
