Anyone go for a few days holiday by themselves?
I go on my motorbike, throw a tent & stuff on the back & go, end up wherever I am, never did it in the campervan though, I really wanted to but the opportunity never came.
IMO it’s one of life’s little luxuries, speak to no one, just drop off the grid for a bit, I take my phone but everyone knows not to call unless it’s a massive emergency, I’m planning on touring Europe next year some time & again just going wherever I want, probably navigate following the sun & weather forecasts 😀 with absolutely no route in mind, decide whether to turn left or right once I’ve got off the ferry.Posted 4 years agobillybouldersMember
Divorced. Work most weekends when mates are all off. Work in a seasonal industry so no holiday Easter to October when everyone else is on holiday. Couldn’t be happier 😆Posted 4 years ago
Do a lot of riding locally and away trips with friends when we can all fit it in and alot alone when we can’t. Northwind hit the nail on the head as usual,
It’s good to enjoy yourself with other people, it’s also fun to do the things you love just for yourself sometimes.cloudnineSubscriber
Was just thinking today how nice it would be to go for 3 or 4 days away all by myself (have wife and 3 young children) and not speak to anyone and just ride some big hills / trails and or go surfing.Posted 4 years ago
Yes its pretty selfish but have the urge to jump in the van and drive.
Anyone actually manage to do this every now and then??
Im not sure my wife would actually understand my motive / reason of wanting to go alone and get offended no doubt._tom_Member
Yeah, I went to Whistler for 2-3 months by myself and it was awesome. I’m planning on doing a Ride Portugal long weekend package thing next year as well. None of my mates ride at the same sort of level as I do as they’ve only just started, so I’d never get to go riding anywhere different if I was waiting for them to acquire the rad skillz to go on a decent riding holiday.
I reckon traveling alone is better anyway. With mates is a good laugh especially for a lads holiday type thing, but I love being alone by myself in a different country.Posted 4 years agokja78Member
Yep, I find 2 or 3 days a few times a year is plenty for me to recharge and become ‘me’ again. I’m off to dartmoor with the bike at the end of the month. Wife is similar but less self aware, so I order her to go every now and again! She’s off on a trampolining coaching course this weekend. Also very important that the two of us get away without the children for a few days, thankfully my mum and/or sisters are usually happy to take them.Posted 4 years agoStonerSubscriber
Mrs Stoner gives me a couple of weekend pink slips a year. I usually go for a long walk and sleep on the hills.Posted 4 years ago
Not tried anything longer yet – not sure it would be fair.
Although last year we did get my folks to babysit for 4 days for Mrs S and I to go away for a break
and get jiggyvisit some vineyards in peace and quiet.stumpy_m4Member

Used to just take a week or two off work, and doss around, going out for a day here and there. Three years ago I booked a week B&B in a pub down in South Hams, Devon, where I used to holiday as a youngster. Loved it, being away from everyone I know, walking the coast paths, and eating and drinking first class food and beer.
Got to know a couple who live down there, who offered me the use of their guest accommodation, which means I’m free to just come and go as I please, in a lovely part of the country, and I love it, not sure if I’d actually like to have someone with me now.
