All in all my trip to Europe was everything I wanted it to be. It was relaxing, after all you can’t really do anything but relax when you are sailing naked around Croatia can you?
After a week with 18 other guys in Croatia then catching up with a great friend in Spain I hit Copenhagen and for the first time I was travelling alone. Mikael was an amazing tour guide and we hung out several times over the 5 days I was there and I caught up with a couple of other people that I knew as well.
On the Wednesday night I had dinner with a couple of these guys then we went our separate ways as they had things to do so I took myself to the Tivoli Gardens Amusement Park in the centre of town. It’s a beautiful place but possibly not the right place for a guy travelling alone. I paid my money to get in and started wandering around enjoying all the lights, gardens, fountains etc when I started to notice that everyone else there were families or couples and it hit hard that I was travelling alone. It’s far from the first time I’ve travelled alone and it won’t be the last unless something changes in my love live. I’m certainly not going to sit at home wishing I could see the world but not doing it just because I’m single. There are perks to being single when you travel but there are also times when you just wish you could share it with someone.
Needless to say I didn’t really hang around in the Tivoli that night. Instead I took myself back to my accommodation and had an early night ready to start afresh the next day.
