Hi Karrie, Jemma and Joan,
I see you are all nervous about taking the plunge with a first Just You holiday. Of course you are - I was. Have you thought that if you are all thinking about a Discovery weekend in the same place, you will not be strangers by the time you get there because you will look for each other and meet up. Easy. My first holiday was at Christmas 2007 to Austria and I rationalised that if I did not like the other people in my group then it was just 1 week out of my life and there would be enough things to do to make it enjoyable. As it happpens this was not the case - and Yes I am going to the Dolomites this Christmas with a friend I made on that first holiday!! We have gone away at every Christmas since as well as other holidays. Be brave and ENJOY. You will not regret it, believe me. Don't forget to let me know how you all get on.
Be happy, best wishes,

Is there anyone going on one of the discovery weekends in Bournemouth. I am so nervous about going on holiday on my own. I have travelled on my own but only to meet my son or daughter abroad so wasn't on my own for the holiday. I am 55 (help!!) and have been on my own for the past 3 years. I am shy, quiet and terrified when I don't know people but I need to get a life!!!

First time single traveller and would love to book one of the Discovery weekends, but am a bit worried that I'll turn up and find that I'm the only one there! Is anyone else going?

Do you know which discovery weekend you would like to go on? I have decided to book the one in Nottingham on 13th August. As my previous post says I am very nervous but after all the encouraging words I have read I have decided to go for it. I wish you the best of luck wherever you decide to go!

That's what I am worried about or also that as we are all newbies it will be more strained than the other holidays. Everyone does seem to have a lovely time though. Don't know where you are but what about one of the Bournemouth weekends. I like the look of those and am trying to pluck up the courage to go.

I'm new to just you, and wondered if anyone can tell me please, what these just you holidays are like? Like do you do things in groups if you choose too? The discovery weekends, look quite good, and am quite interested in. This is my first single holiday, and I'm quite nervous about going on a single holiday. And what age group do you find on the holidays?
The messages on here seem positive.

Just to let you all know that if you are considering booking a discovery weekend, do it asap. I have just called to book the weekend in Nottingham on 13/08/10 and was told that there are no female rooms left, so no discovery weekend for me! I'm really disappointed as I was so looking forward to it. I would have booked sooner, however I only found out about Just You a couple of weeks ago!...It seems that I may have to wait until next year to take my first holiday by myself.

I'm trying to decide whether I can brave one of the Bournemouth weekends. Which weekend were you thinking of?
