My first solo trip was right after I separated from my husband. The trip was booked for both of us and I considered cancelling completely. Then I decided I need a vacation and just took his name off the reservation. Food & Wine Festival 2012, I had a great time. Of course there were lots of things to do. My next solo trip is coming up in December this year, I'm hoping my experience is just as great. You have to plan some events, dinner reservations, wine tastings, maybe a dessert party, but also give yourself some time to relax and just go with the flow. Definitely max out that AP!
