Hi

Have just booked this holiday as my first ever solo holiday. I am 57 years old and lost my husband last year. This is all new to me but I'm hoping/expecting a great time and would love to hear from anyone who is travelling at the same time. I'm travelling from Bristol on 9th May.

I've always wanted to visit Dubrovnik so am really looking forward to that, but did go to Montenegro in 2015 and visited Kotor which was absolutely stunning.

Hi Jenny

This is so weird! I am also 57 and have made a provisional booking to go on the Montenegro Riviera holiday on 9th May, flying from Bristol! I thought I'd look at this forum before I confirm my booking (not really sure why!)

I am sorry to hear of your bereavement. This time last year I separated from my husband of 30years. Fortunately we have been able to remain on good terms although we agree we couldn't possibly live together again.
I don't live in Bristol, but for complicated logistical reasons, I decided not to fly from Gatwick.

Maybe we should arrange to keep in touch? I don't know if we can do that on a less public forum?

Hi Gill

It would be great to keep in touch and I'll look forward to meeting you on the trip.

I'm not sure if Riviera Travel can pass on email details? I'd be happy to do that.

Hi

I am feeling nervous as this will be my first solo trip. I am also looking at booking from Bristol on 9th May (very popular).

I am 67, my husband is unable to travel abroad now due to ill health but I loved the sound of this trip. Has anyone done this area before? We usually went to Italy.

Hi Betty

Lovely to know you'll be on the trip too! Will look out for you at the airport or perhaps you'd like to chat on email beforehand? If so let Riviera know and they'll pass on your email details to me. I'll let them know they can pass on mine.

I've not been to most of the places we're visiting, but did go to Kotor and Perast on a cruise and it was absolutely stunningly beautiful, so looking forward to going there again. The rest will all be new and I'm particularly looking forward to going to Dubrovnik, somewhere I've always wanted to visit. Hope it lives up to my expectations. I'm glad we're going in May as it hopefully won't be too busy.

Sorry to hear your husband isn't well enough to travel, but good for you for coming away on your own. I think for a few of us it will be our first solo holiday, so we can all be "newbies" together. Hopefully it will give us the confidence to do it again soon.

Hope to speak to you soon.

Hi Jenny, Betty and Gill
I’ve just joined this forum today and was delighted to see your posts. I’m also travelling from Bristol on 9 May! I’m 69 (but much younger at heart!) and I live in Swindon. I was widowed in 2015 and have been on several singles holidays since then but this is my first with Riviera. It’s great to know that there will be some travelling companions and I look forward to meeting you. I will send my email on to Riviera and ask them to pass it on to you.

Hi Jenny
Thank you for the welcome, sadly I hesitated too long and just missed the last place. I am now travelling to Gatwick (not looking forward to the long journey though) and going on the 21st April tour.

I hope you all have a lovely time.
