Hello I joined Silversurfers last week and am still working my way round the site.
Have been main carer for my mum for the last seven years and it looks like she won't be with us for much longer so it's time for me to get out and about again.
Do quite a bit of voluntary work but it will be good to go out purely for enjoyment - have very few close friends which doesn't help!
I'm in the south Cheshire area if that helps.
Hi Everyone. I have just joined today (27/02/19), so this is new for me.
I am 59, young minded (non-smoker) and live in Bedfordshire. I am happily married, but my wife travels abroad a lot with work, so this leaves me with time on my hands.
I would like to travel, but would prefer a travel buddy/partner to do this with. There are a couple of very contrasting trips that I am really interested in. 1. A long weekend train adventure from London/Paris/St Moritz and then the Bernina express through the Swiss Alps ending in Milan before flying back to the UK. 2. 8-10-day Vietnam tour, Hanoi to Ho Chi Min City I am also looking at other UK/European City breaks or long-haul travel, but of course, open to ideas?
If anyone is interested in getting together to discuss some travel ideas, feel free to get in touch. Funds are not unlimited, but I am happy to look at budget, more upmarket travel ideas, or anywhere in between.
I've just joined so thought I would say hello.. and I wish a warm welcome to the other newbies.
I'm looking for a traveling companion and new friends as it appears I'm the only single person I know in my circle of all married or tied up friends! And they now forget I'm here....
So I've bitten the bullet let's see what Happens! Things can only get better in the social circle stakes. I love the sea and the country way of life..
Don't spend enough time in either but I'm always outdoors.. Just not in the right location!
Looking forward to hearing from any other single surfers who are tired of Going it Alone!
Very much new to all this but am fascinated too. Widowed 7 years ago found it very difficult to begin with but as everyone knows it does get easier, we should all just treasure the memories I think. If it’s any help I found having projects: large or small helped considerably, I am fortunate I live out in the sticks in a house I built myself so am well equipped to get stuck into a new idea! Latest is constructing or adapting bird feeders .. next? Constructing bird nesting boxes then onto something much larger perhaps. I have built and flown several two-seater aircraft in the past so my message to everyone feeling a bit lonely is just go for it you will be amazed at what you can achieve it only takes the first step.
I hope I can make friends on this site it seems a very friendly one from what I have read so far and I hope I can contribute in future topics
All the best Tezz
Hello all. A friend recommended this place, so here I am.
Currently exploring the site by phone but looking forward to seeing the site properly, on a laptop, when I get home from work.
Tea break doesn’t leave much time for looking about.
I look forward to chatting with you all.
Just joined in January living in Hitchin Hertfordshire, with 2 teenage daughters, both A level students and husband.
I enjoy sports particularly Rugby union ( being Irish helps) walking and the sea love to go to the cinema and enjoy Italian opera.
Hoping to make some new friendships - would hope to travel more in years to come
Hi, I’m a ‘Newbie’ on here so having a good look round to see if I can find anything that takes my interest.
I live on the South Coast, I’m interested in reading & brewing (plus drinking) mainly, however, I run a few groups on Facebook (Local History, Brewing, Darts) & in the Summer I run a darts league to raise money for charity.
I look forward to reading your posts.
Hello, my name is Nicki and I have just joined. I live in beautiful Somerset and am lucky to have a gorgeous 22 year old son and a staffie cross Cairn rescue dog called Lola. Christmas this year will be a quiet event as I have recently separated but I am looking forward to spending time with loved ones.
