Default Travelling alone - or not?

Im a senior in college who hopes to travel/backpack the world during recesses (Winter, Spring, and Summer).

My biggest problem is that I have no friends who would be down for really cheap hostels/food, lots of walking, and everything else I have in mind.

So I made a decisionId go alone. Unfortunately, my parents said No way. Too dangerous.

So my question is what should I do?

The obvious answer was to find a travel program. But Im deadest against this. The whole point of my trip is freedom. Plus the programs are expensive.

So I came up with a second idea. Use Facebook. Find people from my college who I can meet up with at various points. But my college is small so this is impractical.

What do you think?

Default Dont go alone !

i work in the tourism industry in Viet Nam and i often travel abroad, so i advise you of not going alone, because some below concern:

1. as your parent mentioned: your trip will be quite riskly

2. you will get bored because no one talking or helping each other during the trip, one day you can be sick or wounded and so on .... you will wish to have a fellow traveller next to you and support you coming over some bad situations.

P/s: my dream also want to travel around the world as a backpacker with limited budget, i am sure i will make my dream come true in near future.
