7. The Solo Traveler
Destination: United Kingdom
Who you should bring with you: You like to roll solo dolo, so no travel buddy for you.
What to pack: Nothing special, just don't leave your common sense at home.
Travelling to the UK alone is a great idea for someone who wants to stay busy on their vacation, but doesn't want to have to compromise his itinerary for a whining friend. A common concern of solo travelers is becoming bored and lonely while away from home, but when you can spend your days bouncing between shops, museums, and hitting raves and parties at night, you'll be too preoccupied with fitting everything into your schedule to encounter anything resembling boredom. The UK has a diverse population in its big cities like London and Edinburgh, so if you are looking for some last-minute travel companionship, you'll have no trouble meeting new folks whom you can hang out with while abroad.
