  • Yes, but only if it were for business. My biggest worry would be getting stranded or lost and having no one to call, especially if English was not the native language.

  • I would travel to any European country alone, as well as Canada, and a few Central and South American countries. Anything other than that, I would have to really think about it and study some of the cultures and languages before I went. I have traveled to several countries and can find my way around pretty well. My biggest concern would be not knowing certain customs, traditions, and language, if I didn't have enough time to prepare.

  • I probably would not travel alone. I am too trusting of people, and I fear that would get me into trouble.

  • Yes I would. I would take a week to myself and go back to Italy. I'm familiar with several places and I would love to stay in Sorrento or somewhere along the Amalfi Coast. I know the roads. I know the Autostrada and Tangenziale. I've even gone so far as to price how much it would be for room, flight, and car rental.

  • I have and would travel alone. I've been to Portual, Kenya and Israel on my own. I would go again, but traveling with my DH is so much nicer for me.

  • The only time I've traveled alone is when I moved from Canada to England.

  • I have traveled through Spain and England alone. When you travel, you meet people.

  • No, I wouldn't travel to any country alone. If I had to do it as part of business (which wouldn't happen with my position), I would request that I be partnered with someone. As for leisure, absolutely not, I want the company of my family.
