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.
