Hi I'm a single lady 62. Scottish. Friendly GSOH ,honest, chatty and independent. I have booked A 3 bed house near Dover beach Christchurch. Barbados from early Jan 2018. Until 28th Feb. I'm hoping to find 2 mature ladies to share the house costs with me. We would each have our own room and company or privacy as needed! the property is minutes to the beach! It's a very good location . I spent 6 weeks in Barbados and escaped some of the UK winter ! It was fabulous and fun. The house is advertised on Air bn b. 3 double beds . Modern kitchen , lounge, bathroom. utility room etc. Unfortunately family can't join me and I need to find housemates to share the cost of this house. So if you fancy 8 weeks Barbados please get in touch ! Thank you .
Hi I'm Riccardo, an Italian geologist, 55 years old. I arranged a tour of Namibia little parto of South Africa (Kalagadi NP) and Botswana in July in campsites, off the normal routes, with 4x4 and all off-road equipment (toyota hilx 3.0 with 2 roof tents and camping equipment) and I'm looking for two people who, along with me and a colleague form the crew. The crew will be made up of 4 people. The journey time is 16 nights - 17 days, from 6 July to 22, + two flight. The cost of the tour, including car and equipment rental, almost all dinners and breakfasts, fuel and entry into the parks is 31200 NAD correspondent, to date, around 2156 Euro international flight and Insurance excluded. If somebody is interested I cand send an email with the travel plan, the steps and cost, just to be evaluated. The title is in Italian, but the text is in English. It is pretty hard and "spartan" tour (prevalent camping + 2 - 3 guesthouse) with even long stays, but I think it's worth it and the cost is not prohibitive considering the number of days spent in Africa. I thank you anyway for reading.
If anyone around the Glasgow area would like to travel to Krakow late summer for a 4 day trip, get in touch. I'm told it is worth seeing, and cheap for food and drink. Most weekend breaks would cost around £350.
Hi I am looking to plan a trip to visit my family in Sydney around Christmas time, however this time I would like to try and visit or revisit other areas within the Country, in the past I have been lucky enough to travel around this vast Country, but would like maybe to revisit some areas, parts like Melbourne Perth and Adelaide have only been flying visit, and I know there is much more there to see and digest! The only place I would not want to return to is Aryes Rock, this is a been there got the tee shirt attraction. If there is anyone else out there that would like to share in some travelling, then please let me know. I should also say, that I would not be looking to stay at top hotels, just basic clean accommodation!
Hi, just joined this site . I am a 63 yr young female retired teacher from Ontario looking to strap on my backpack and just go. I am very active, cycle, hike, kayak, canoe and it would be great to travel with someone just as energetic. I also enjoy my down time and space, would be respectful of yours as well. I have just recently relocated to the Toronto area so if you live here or close by and looking to head off for a couple months, let me know. Life is one big adventure!!
Thank you to all of those who have messaged me regarding the " Marigold Hotel" inspired trip to Kerala, I have travelled other parts of India a few years ago but not this area before. I would like to be part of a small group, say 4 to six people for between 16 to 30 days, inialy based in Kochi for half of the time then moving on for the rest of the trip. Travel would be in private vehicle with driver which split by a group works out very cheaply per person. I would like to meet up with those of you interested in joining me on this adventure which will be at a leasurely pace. My suggestion is a.weekend break in Norfolk or here in Southern Spain if you prefer. Regarding the cost an educated guesstimate would be between £1500 a £2000 per person which would include flights, accomodation, travel and food, at this stage it's not possable to do an accurate costing as depends so much on accomodation standard chosen by the group and month chosen for trip. Decisions would be made jointly so everyone has Imput.. Two years ago I was part of a group of five people who travelled Costa Rica and Panama following this format which worked out great, travelling this way is so much better value than joining a Travel Tour Company and we worked out that we saved around £1000 per person with independent travel. I know that you do not have the backup should a problem arise but with good Travel Insurance and being team players to stick together and help each other it's a really good way to travel and enjoy other Countries and Cultures, sometimes warts and all. Await your comments and look forward to meeting you as fellow travellers and hopefully good friends for the future.
I found this forum about 3 weeks ago. I wanted to share this site with a dear old friend of mine who does not use the Internet often. Joined this morning . I'm from the east coast of Canada, retired lady and in past liked to travel solo but last spring went on a walking holiday with another lady . Nice having someone to help take photos, share a meal, etc. I would like to find a walking companion for a Coastal Walk in Portugal. Thinking of going in the fall of this year but could wait til next spring. My friend Eli is 80 years old and has a cottage in PEI that she hopes to share with a senior this summer. Most summers, her family joins her but are unable to this summer. She has put a notice on a Cdn. Site called Kijiji (it's sim. to Gumtree ) but has had no replys. She loves everything Irish, so someone from Ireland would be a treat for her. If there are replys to the cottage share, she will join. She doesn't have a computer but could use the one at the library. I have probably posted way to much for one post. Not sure From AC
Anyone interested in setting up a travel group in Scotland? I have travelled fairly extensively but keen to consider any type of travel except cruises. Maybe start with a weekend break and see what happens from there. If anyone is interested I am happy to take on the initial organisation of a introductory get together.
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 :)
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.
