    I travel mostly with my daughter nowadays, which still has some of the benefits of solo travel (somehow adults are much more difficult to agree with than a 4-year-old) with the added bonus of never being lonely. But I totally agree with most of these comments, especially 4 and 6 ring true.

      Aww that’s lovely though that you both get to travel together. She’s going to have so many wonderful memories! I’m quite happy either way but when I get older and meet someone I would definitely not be opposed to travelling with them. It’s definitely about what suits your lifestyle best but it’s nice to know if we do go solo we aren’t the only ones! x
