I have been traveling for two years, mostly solo. I have never felt intimidated in any of the dozens of countries I have visited but I agree with your choices as being especially user-friendly except I have never been to Laos. I actually prefer solo to the time I traveled with a less adventurous friend. The Mayan people are very gracious and many are multilingual. The food is unique and delicious and the handicrafts superb!
I traveled a lot in my life and worked overseas as well for few years. Passionate about travel. Before divorce came final recently, went to Sicily on tour for some uplifting. And after 34 years together and of promises of travel after I retired. Now looking for travel partner as I want to continue with my travels. I am so sorry to hear about your divorce. My husband left me after 34 years. Believe me, it gets lots easier! I am also looking for a travel partner for some trips. Also solo after 34 years. I want to go with you all too!! Have been solo for 30 years. Make at least 3 major trips per year, solo and with friends.
Always looking for fellow travelers.
Traveled to Norway as a solo, on my own, stayed in AirBnBs much less expensive that hotels, and you can meet locals. I would recommend that country. Also went on a river cruise alone not cheap, but no single supplement in Netherlands and Belgium during tulip season that was great. Travel by myself to Hawaii different islands each year, and again, have found AirBnB a good way to avoid the high costs and impersonal big resorts.
I go annually to an eco-resort near Zihautanejo Mexico on my own which is lovely; great food, beautiful scenery, nice people. Hello Kathy. I have spent t a year in Australia and love the people. Getting expensive. Try Townsville and Cairns and Port Douglas. Unbelievable beautiful. Say something domestic that is affordable would be a good start, or a weekend cruise that is for adults, not seniors, and not party kids. I would love to join in on a 50 something singles trip in the us to start, maybe a cruise.
Ireland is amazing.
Spent four weeks driving around the coast, beautiful. Africa solo! They all work and have young families, so finding time to get away is so limited. They can only squeeze in days at most. I agree with Paul that India is at the top of the list. But if you want something a little easier and you can afford it, Japan is magic. Vietnam, but take time to understand it before you go.
Hanoi, then Danang or Dalat.

Off the tourist trail people will ask how old you are. This is so they know how to treat you. If you are as old as their mother or grandmother you command high respect. If you are the same age then calling you older sister is a sign of respect. The first females to lead an army to victory against the chinese was in 47AD. Quang An is the mother and provider to all veit people. Ancestor worship is huge. We spent 10 months there on holiday after visiting for 2 months a few years ago. We had only planned to stay 2 weeks initially.
They best food you will ever eat is in a Vietnamese home, cooked by a local. It is illegal for a Wesrener to be in a hotel room with a Vietnamese if they are not married. When we went my husband 6 ft2 was 70 yrs old with a grey beard. The locals were fascinated, not many old men had survived the war and certainly none as tall as him. The local barber was desperate to shave him!! So much so that we had to escape an encircling crowd!
I agree, great idea. I have always traveled and taken my children. I am interested in trying traveling without them but am afraid to travel alone. Do it!!! Take a bus tour!!! Fiji was mine…. NZ was a bonus!!! We still keep in touch!!! Have a landing spot for the first few days. It can be a pain with the young crowds home away and just want to party. The single supplement can cost more so find a friend. Go on a tour where everything is taken care of.
Have fun and go.
