This summer I wanna go traveling by myself 2-3 weeks (I'm kinda shy but it seems like one of the best ways to build self confidence). I'm a 19y/o M. I don't really know where to go though. All I know is I want a part of my trip to be by a beach where I could soak up the sun!:D. I'm from France, will really need a break by the summer. So my question is, where to go. I like culture (museums/ expos/ etc...) and going out at night too. I was thinking of going Couch Surfing so I reduce my accommodation budget and I'm fine with moving around, I mean the 3 weeks don't have to be at the same place. but I would like a place where it is NOT weird to travel solo and to go out alone, which means a place that is really welcoming and friendly, where people don't try to avoid newcomers... Anywhere in France would not fit for instance! =D So where do U think I should go. I was thinking of a trip to Amsterdam, then Rome then Athens, so I have both the culture and sun aspects, but I love America too, so why not a trip to Southern US, or ...whatever.... anyway! HELP NEEDED!!!!
