My holidays are always solo.  The few times I've gone with friends, it generally turned out to be unenjoyable. No more.

I've gone on solo trips before and I enjoyed myself thoroughly! I usually have a regular travel partner for Europe/Japan trips.

I went alone on a 9D Guizhou/Zhangjiajie tour with Super Travels (paid about $200 additional for single supplement) and I really enjoyed the trip!

I also went alone to Australia (South Australia and Melbourne) alone but I joined the local tours there and I got to know many new friends from all over the world. It was very fun!

Wanted to stay in hotel whole day because he wants to be on laptop at every set of interval timing. End up the whole trip we only see each other during the night in hotel.

That's why I prefer to go on package tours .

Some poeple don't get up until 11 am and by the time they are ready, it's past 12 noon already. I cannot accept this so just go on package tour is best.

Aiyoh, Uncle BJ, some girls are so slow and take so long to apply wayang makeup on their face. I cannot tahan this type of pattern. My usual travel partner is about 60 years old so she is not in this category.

And I do not pay to sleep on a vacation. I want to sightsee as much as possible and enjoy the country that I am visiting. If I want to sleep, I can sleep at home.

I always apply sunblock and makeup on vacation cos I want to look good in photos.

When on a package tour, there's a time for everything - wake-up call, breakfast, meet downstairs etc.  So everyone has to manage their own timing. If you need 2 hours to get ready, then you will have to wake up earlier.

Went to holiday with a friend for the first and last time to HK. She was so ngeow and calculating that she grudges even the tissue paper. And she insisted on sticking together. Tried to tell her we split up and just meet for dinner or something, but she refused  :'(

Anyway, I refused to travel with her ever again.

Aiyoh, from friend to enemy. I won't go out with ngeow people.

My usual travel partner (single lady in her early 60s) and I accommodate each other, that's why we can go on trips together.

We first went on a 8D Korea trip. Since we could tahan each other, we went on more trips together lasting up to 15 days each trip (Europe and Spain/Portugal). Just give and take, lah.
