    I have a favorite city that I like to visit and it has all of these favorite sites and hangouts.  Going with someone else would spoil it.  Plus, they might laugh at me for buying a year's supply of tea.  

    Customs used to be all, "What, you're ALONE?" but since I've established the pattern (and always declare my tea), I think they've concluded that I'm some sort of harmless weirdo.

    OTOH, when I went to Hawai'i last year, after the deaths of my grandmother and aunt, that was the only time no one thought it was weird to go alone.  I was sad and grieving, my closest connections all ganged up on me and ordered me to go, so I went - and even the TSA guy was incredibly nice.  It was absolutely wonderful.
