If you read the previous posts you will see that the message is to do it, there seems to be a lot of first timers on JY holidays so you will not be the only one,I think each holiday has at least 20 people so you will have a lot of support with a mix of new comers and second and third timers. I would say do it.
Sorry if this seems like a lecture.

Even though I have found that the discovery weekends are fully booked I have decided to take the plunge anyway and book myself a holiday abroad with Just You. I haven't decided where to go to yet and I am nervous of course about my first single holiday, but I figure it will be an experience whatever happens, so remember that you're not the only one who's a bit scared, but I'm sure it's worth doing!

You should go for it - the Discovery Weekends are great ! Everyone is new and that makes them even more eager to meet new people. I went one last November . There were 50 of us varying from 30's to 70's. We had great time. Since then I have been to Egypt on a Nile Cruise, and I am going to Oberammagau next month, and Las Vegas in September. I am a widower , I lost my wife 18 months ago - these holidays have been the best thing that has happened to me.
I am also on the last JustYou magazine.

hi all, I have been on a few JY holidays and the first thing you do id look around the airport to see a JY label swinging on someones suitcase whose owner is doing exactly the same, you smile at each other and start to relax as you have found a buddy, and bingo its the start of a brilliant holiday adventure with like minded people. I was quaking in my boots on my first holiday but it all melts away in minutes as you all meet up and feel safe in the knowledge you have a guide who is looking after you and you are never alone so in one way its starts off as 'just you' but ends up 'all of us' so dont be scared, worried or anxious look on it as a positive experience of a great adventure, I have booked Thailand on September 16th and cant wait.

I know you feel nervous and you say it is hard to go on holiday alone but think - how hard can it be to get on a coach or a plane? Take the plunge and have a great time. We have all had to do it at some time and never looked back! Go on, enjoy life - you know you deserve it. Good Luck.
Be happy, best wishes,

You say you will have to wait until next year for your holiday - I don't think so! Have you thought, it may be that Fate is telling you to risk going further afield? There are so many wonderful places you could go - so go and enjoy one of them. Who knows, it may be the first of many - as they say "the world is your oyster".
Be happy, best wishes,
