Conundrum : Solo Travel or Group Tour

So lately I have been faced with this conundrum of whether to travel solo to a new country or wait till I find someone who wants to go with me. Travelling and discovering new countries and cultures is something I want to do alot of but I have been holding back due to not having friends around interested in travelling as much as I am.
I think it is fear keeping me from going alone to another country especially one where I do not speak the local language. Anyhoo I have been scouring the net for good travel tours, there are loads of them! so I need to do my research on them as per reviews and all.

I have read a few reviews of tours, the most common negatives include tours being expensive compared to planning the trip your self and poor standard hotels, not enough time spent at tourist attractions.

So what do you guys think, travel alone or go on tours where you are not alone and you get to meet new people ?

Have you guys taken any travel tours from England UK, which tour companies did you go with ?

Friends with Benefits

This is officially my first blog post Yay! So I just launched my blog today after procrastinating forever. If you are reading this post thanks for visiting my blog, I will try my very best not to bore you :). I was thinking really hard about what my first post should be about, like everyone else wanted my first post to be something fun and exciting that everyone will want to read but then I just thought why not start with what I did last night. So after a long day at work, I decided to watch a movie. Decided to go for “Friends with Benefits” been meaning to watch that movie for a while, just never got around to it.

As expected it was a typical Hollywood romantic comedy, with a very predictable ending. Anyhoo so what did I think of the movie, it is a typical chic flick with a bit of humor not that funny but great acting. Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake did a really good job in my opinion and there was great chemistry between them. Have always thought the whole friends with benefits business is just something that will never work, personally I believe once a girl and a guy shag more than twice, emotions will definitely get involved especially from the girl. We are emotional creatures, too emotional if you ask me no matter how tough we try to act, all that toughness is a huge fa├žade at least with most girls I know including myself.

Most of us will probably say, oh no I can’t do friends with benefits but have you ever met that guy or girl that you just know you can’t have a relationship with because it just won’t work but a roll in the sac with him or her won’t be a bad idea :D. Well that's how those tots creep in and you gradually start thinking  it won’t be a bad idea I don’t like him/her anyway so it can’t lead to anything…. Big lie soon one of you would start asking questions and want to define what you are doing. Enough rambling from me :), here is the trailer, If you have not seen the movie.

If you have seen “Friends with Benefit”, what did you think? Have you ever considered having a friend with benefits? :) or have you ever had a friend with benefits ? ;). Share your tots!
