Hi, Anyone interested in joining our travel group. At the moment it consists of myself and Bwf, both retired 'young ladies' with interesting cultural travel in mind. We both enjoy natural scenery and experiencing what the local life has to offer ... walks, sightseeing, cycling etc. We would like to get a group of like minded people together with a mix of personalities to add interest. Could be males and females but we're not looking for partners. A social group who would like to meet up from time to time for trips, travel, theatre, walks, a meal together and a natter etc. I live near Cambridge and Bwf lives in North London. .... so if you are able to meet up near either of those cities, that would be handy. Interested in most travel from short city breaks, (U.K. and Europe) to travel worldwide. Feel free to message me if you are interested. It doesn't matter if you can't commit to all our get togethers ..... (maybe you have a lot of free time and maybe you can only manage the odd trip). The idea of the group is that there will be someone available at sometime to arrange travel with. Chat soon :)
Hi all - First post for me.
My wife and I are currently in Cyprus. Having planned a Winter stay from November to March we find ourselves here for a bit longer due to the virus. Whilst here we've met dozens of like-minded people from different parts of Europe who do this every year. This seems like a great idea to us going forward and we're already planning ours for this coming Winter.
My questions is, if you've been on a long-stay trip (anything over a month), where did you stay and why would you recommend it? And, if any of you are in the Eastern part of Cyprus then let me know - great to share stories. Stay well everyone. N&J
Do you have any information on repatriation flights for UK citizens stranded abroad in Spain, Italy, France, etc? My disabled cousin has been stranded in Malaga since March 21 st. Since then he has received new boarding passes from Easyjet every week for non-existent flights.
He is fortunate to be in an apartment owned by my goddaughter and does not have to pay any rent, but there are many others there who are not so lucky. When are they going to get home.? The Consulate is no good and just says contact your airline and the airline says to contact the Consulate Catch 22!
The Foreign Office is equally not helpful for people stranded in Europe. Perhaps you can investigate and publicise this to speed up the response to this crisis.
Having lost a soul mate recently, being isolated for so long due to this virus I have decided, once that travelling is allowed and the hotels and pubs reopen, I will venture out throughout the UK to maybe meet different people and visit interesting places.
I have always promised myself that I would do this but due to my late wife's health problems have never been unable to do it.
It would be nice if anyone could suggest any places to go visit or anyone who would like to meet up with on the way for maybe a meal or an interesting chat, that being an interesting woman who also suffers from being lonely, and looking for something more.
I'm looking to chat with people who have traveled to different countries within Asia (S. Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, China, Japan, etc.) and have food allergies and or dietary restrictions.
I'm trying to learn what worked during your travel experience such as: researching restaurants, mobile apps, recommendations, etc. In addition, I want to learn what didn't work such as using chef cards, translation apps, etc., and why.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions and or additional info. you want to share.
