Hi! I’m going to be doing a 3 week solo backpacking trip to Ireland in February of 2017. It’s my first trip out of the country and I’m a little nervous to be doing it alone. Not looking for a travel buddy per say - but possibly someone traveling in Ireland around the same time for a meet up or possibly locals to meet while there. I’ll be 27 at the time of my travels and I’ll be there alone for Valentine’s Day so any singles that want to just go out and explore the pubs with me while we bask in our singleness, I’m so down! I also expect it to be extremely cold and rain at least once a day while I’m there so I’d like to pointers since the weather will be completely different than the California weather I’m used to. Any tips, tricks, or other recommendations is greatly appreciated!
