Vacation: Party of One

I am unemployed for the summer and I must say that I am loving it!!

Once I was done with work I took a trip up to San Jose to visit friends.  I spent some time talking and catching up with my good friend Pauline.  She was telling me that recently she took a trip to Monterey by herself to recharge and relax.  I was really impressed that she did that, I myself have always been a wimp about taking trips alone.  I can eat in a restaurant, catch a movie, and pretty much do most things alone, but there has always been something about going on a vacation by myself that has seemed daunting to me.  Prior to my conversation with Pauline I had been looking up destinations to travel to alone but something always prevented me from making the decision to go ahead and do it.  Am I worried about the safety of traveling to a new place alone?  Am I concerned that people will judge me and think I am some desperate loser with no friends who has to vacation alone?  I am not really sure, but I know that I won't get over whatever stigma I think is attached to a solo vacation unless I do it.  I'm not sure when I am going to do it but I am committing myself to taking a solo vacation before the year's end.

I'll keep you posted when I figure out my destination...
