As the lone malcontent at the end of the bar, I find this article extremely offensive.
@Tuna Surprise I agree that group day trips are a good way to break up the alone-time, and particularly recommend group bike trips for this purpose, so that you're not stuck on a bus at all.
@fizberry88 I spent a few days in Ubud, Bali by myself about 5 years ago (I'd been travelling with a friend who had to leave before I did). I found it delightful, except for one moment while I was hiking when I thought someone was following me, but I tend to get nervous when I'm alone in nature. I don't know about the rest of Indonesia, but I think solo travel in Bali is just fine.
I just registered to say that I think I'm in love with you, Carolita Johnson.
