Hello all - I am new to this forum. I am also retired and have been a widow for 9 months. I do voluntary work a couple times a week, joined an Art Group and visit the gym regularly but I still feel lonely especially at this time of the year. I am keen to make new friends who like travelling either in this country or abroad.

I found Silversurfers when contemplating whether I would ever go on holiday again after losing my husband suddenly in 2015. It was such a shock & has left me having to work until I eventually retire, so as you can imagine, I'm not exactly well off. I then wondered if there were others out there in the same predicament, being on their own, wanting a holiday or short break now & again but being solo & not willing to go it alone? Whether that person is abled or disabled, would like to travel with someone who is a good listener, likes reading, walking & exploring new cultures, I am open to discover my new single self & make friends. I'm not one for being in peoples pockets & know that sometimes, when away, we all like time alone as well as have a companion to go sightseeing or dining out with. I will be 60 this year (I really can't believe how time has flown by), am very young at heart & have a handful of friends aged 33 - 75. I love hearing about peoples lives, loves & interests, so if you are in a similar situation, would like to chat, make friends with a view to perhaps one day travel, please do get in touch. Look forward to hearing from you ...

This is my 60th year and there’s still so many places I want to go, and I want to meet everyone on the planet that I haven’t bumped into so far; probably not realistic, so I’m going to need to narrow that goal, but none the less, I intend to go to all the places I’ve longed to go. I’m not rich, so this is going to be a backpacking, budget, take a packed lunch sort of world tour. I'm starting with India. Fly into New Delhi, then the Golden Triangle. Shatabdi from New Delhi to Amritsar, from there its easy to go to Pathankot and then a bus to Dharamsala. The heading to McLeodganj, the upper part of Dharamsala, where the Dalai Lama lives. This is all very much in the planning stages and I would love to hear from anyone who has been to any of these places with advice, tips and encouragement. I'll be blogging on the way (www.shitim60.com) so any help or advice you give me before I leave I'll be thanking you on my way.

Joined this site in July hoping to make new friends and finding travel companions but so far no luck? Did not put a photograph on until yesterday as no idea how to do it? but my Grandson came to the rescue. I would like to meet up either in Spain or UK for European City breaks or long haul travel, happy to welcome you here to Southern Spain and show you my World?

I would like to meet people for travelling companions. I am female but either sex would suit if they are 65 plus and lively with a good sense of humour.

Sharing my Spanish home for 6 months

I would like to meet people who might like to spend time with me in my Spanish holiday home in the Costa Blanca. I am 70 next year and would like a lively responsible person to enjoy social activities in and around the house. The 3 bedroom detached house is in the Alicante region, not far from the airport. It has a large 12x6 private swimming pool and a large garden plot. It is within walking distance of the town. Pets would be welcome. Obviously I would like to get to know the person(s) beforehand. They can be of either sex. I am just tired of having to do things on my own all the time. I have a fair knowledge of Spanish. I want to spend the summer months in the house.

Bristol Flyer bus to Bristol Airport over 60 travel concession removed

I went to Bristol Airport recently via the central bus station and was very disappointed that I could'nt use my senior bus pass as previously.It cost me £11.Is this the thin edge of the wedge and will other local authorities remove their concessions?

My husband and I are in our early 60's looking to go to Rhodes for the first time in October next year. We are looking for self catering in a quiet area. On past holidays to Crete Corfu we have had a villa (been so relaxing) but villas in Rhodes are expensive.....unless anyone can recommend a site to check out or knows of a private advertiser? I have scoured through the 'holidaylettings' booking.com and all the well known companies. Am not opposed to apartments/studios if in a quiet area. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance!
