Any bees out there that travel alone for pleasure and not just work?
I had a 4 night trip planned with two girlfriends for mid-Feb, tix already purchased. They are backing out. I don’t mind if they do, one has a very good reason and I think the other kinda lost interest without it being a threesome. No hard feelings at all. But I’m kinda feeling like I’d like to just go by myself, I’m kinda glad they are backing out.
In the past as a single girl solo travel wouldn’t seem odd at all. But now, engaged, cohabitating, buying a house I don’t know if it’s totally normal?
We do have a lot on our plates right now through summer and the holidays were NUTS for us, very stressful. Frankly I think I deserve 5 days in the sun. It’s dead winter here and I’d like very much to go for a run outside in the sun, take some yoga classes, read a book, eat whatever I want (not having to subject myself to my FI tastes and food requirements), go to the beach, feel some ocean water, sleep, get some peace and quiet, etc. I’m an introvert, and I need this kind of time to recharge and I haven’t had any in a loooooong time, and won’t have any for a looooong time.
Should I do it? We just spontaneously bought a house (which means taking on a car lease too) so part of me feels that I should stay put and save money. But the airfare is already purchased. I’d need to pay for a rental car and then food but I eat on the cheap.
My FI is going to think it’s weird for me to go alone, but he won’t try to stop me. I don’t think!
