Just wanted to extend my thanks to everyone that encouraged me to try traveling alone a few SNSes ago! It gave me to the courage I needed and I’m currently planning a trip to England for November! My mom’s coming along for part of it as once she heard I was going she requested to come along and I didn’t have the heart to tell her no. I’m getting free plane tickets out of the bargain (she has a ton of free air miles), so it’s worth it. Now I can afford to stay a few days longer than I originally planned! I haven’t decided yet if I plan to spend the entire time based in London or if I’ll change cities partway though. I’m tempted to spend part of my trip in Paris, though I may not have enough time to make that worth it. I may just take the train up to York and spend a couple of nights there instead.
