I realize getting to take the trip was a luxury. Most people with a regular work schedule have limited vacation time and can't use it to travel solo when they have spouses or kids or families they need to visit. And staying at a hotel isn't cheap (though the Capri hotel was very reasonable). But if you have the means and the time, you owe it to yourself to do it. Leave your sig other behind. They'll enjoy the alone time and so will you. Bring that book you've been dying to read. Or all those New Yorkers (or Us Weeklies) you've been meaning to catch up on. Bask in the glow of not having to ask someone else what they want to eat for dinner or watch on TV. Be okay with making decisions on your own. Rejoice over a beautiful view. And remember that the world is just as radiant even in the moments you don't have someone else to share it with.
