Do you get vacations? Can you take off for 3 weeks or something, to some good resort?
As far as the "alone" thing, a lot of people ride alone.
Yeah, the vacation thing sounds like the best bet for you. Depending on your trade, maybe look for a job in another area. Try dating. I know, northern England, bit there has to be some Geordie chick out there for you.
I'm a Doctor so the longest I can realistically take off is 5-days and I can't move areas without quitting medicine/training because of how the system works. It's at least 2-years until I could move away.
Ha maybe. Geordie girls don't tend to be into sport though...
