I have been meaning to realize this personal mission for quite sometime now. You see when youre single, and in my case, female (really?! I could have fooled everyone!) and if most of your friends are married and have already made other plans for their holidays, or are not planning to go anywhere, or whatever reason they can come up with because they dont really want to include you in their holiday plans, then that’s it, your stuck and can’t go anywhere. Hang on, really, you can’t go anywhere as a single female person? Meaning you give up easily and just not go on holiday, anywhere, even if it’s just you, on your own? Let’s develop this more so you can see my point.
I have few single friends in my local congregation and the worst part is that their idea of a holiday is totally the exact opposite to mine. They are much younger than me so it’s all sandy beaches but I grew up close to the coast back home and had enough of it in my youth so that’s out of the question. And the thought of me prancing in a bikini is not going to happen until I lose another stone. (Right, you’re supposed to laugh there now) Like this year for example I want to revisit Edinburgh again after not having been there for the last two years and then again just to take in the sights, have another paella at Barioja, spend more time in the museums, galleries and maybe even catch a fringe production, then there’s the sightseeing of landmarks unique to this beautiful city. And also hopefully meet up again with my pal Richard of Filmstalker as our first meeting was just over a quick cup of coffee at the train station. Last but not the least, where else can you have a good ole haggis but here? Anywhere in Scotland counts too of course. Did I mention I havent been to a pub there too, so there, what other reasons do I want! So I am hoping to go there with my pal eddie to celebrate our 10 years in the UK but I can already see visions of it not happening due to her circumstances of now being a wife and a mother. But just for argument’s sake that she can’t make it, should I just go ahead and take this holiday on my own and accomplish my mission?
Would you go on holiday on your own? Discuss.
