Tips for Solo Travellers

I find the thought of solo traveling uncomfortable and intimidating.

Does any one have any tips for successful and enjoyable solo traveling?

Recently I visited Amsterdam and Vienna with friends and colleagues respectively, but spent some time on my own.

I enjoyed exploring both cities on my own, at my own pace.

From that limited experience my tips are:

Join guided city walking tours.

Join guided tours of museums/art galleries.

Take time out to people watch and enjoy the atmosphere.

Carry a pen and notebook to write up experiences and impressions.

Take photos of interesting objects and sights.

Sit at the bar :).

I'd be interested to hear your tips.
