This is quite an unusual post but I really need some advice. I have the chance to go to Germany on a twinning trip and stay with a host family but it would mean I would have to fly there alone and stay a week with complete strangers in a town I never visited before. You may not have guessed but I am very shy (which I could do a post about if anyone is interested?) and rather a worrier so I'm not sure how I would find it so I would love to hear what you guys think and whether you think I should go. I would also be very grateful to hear from anyone who has travelled alone - especially if you are quite young or are shy/nervous.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. You can also tweet me at @TheEmeraldDove.
