Whilst travelling with friends or organised groups is fairly common, by choice or by necessity many people travel alone. Travelling alone is a unique experience and can be a very rewarding way of travelling.
Travelling alone is not uncommon and most solo travellers are able to meet other travellers at hostels, bars, organised tours or any place where travellers tend to hang out.
Some destinations lend themselves better to solo travel than others.
Hotel rooms are typically priced at "double occupancy", and don't expect them to cut the price in half (or even a little) just because there's only one of you. Hostels are much more accommodating of single travellers, but at the cost of your privacy, charging by the bed in shared rooms.
