I am looking for a friend/travel companion. I am in my seventies, although in my head I’m still young. I live in Shropshire, surrounded by beautiful countryside, & live very close to the River Severn.
My interests are, walking my two beautiful lurchers, reading & listening to audio books, I love dancing, swimming, holidays, eating out, & a glass of wine or two .
I am married but to a hubby who prefers to be at home!!! I love meeting new people, chatting to them & learning all about them. I very often go away alone, but much prefer company. Hoping to hear from a like-minded

Hi rubysunday
Welcome to all of us. Think we're all 'young' in your heads. You're lucky to live in a beautiful unspoiled (hopefully) part of the country. I'm in leafy Surrey, Hope you find some friends much closer to home. Kind regards. PS If hubby prefers to be at home, you must be doing everything right...

Hello everyone
I typed „Travel Companion“ into the Google search box and came up as one of the results. As the age demographic is perfect for me I thought I might as well join despite there being no nearby users looking for someone to travel with.
Looking forward to the pleasant surprises the site and it‘s community has in store for me

Hi 'CC'
Welcome to all of us. Not sure who/what/where you're looking to travel from/to etc.....Hope you have fun on here....We're a friendly bunch....
Response from CoffeeCake made on 11th May 2019 15:51:59
Thank you! I am quite used to going solo but it would be nice to have someone to go with. I am not a „roast yourself on the beach“ kind of person and prefer City Breaks and multi center holidays further afield.

Hi there
I'm 62 was lucky enough to know what I wanted to do in life and have just recently retired from teaching. I have also travelled extensively, am married have four children and one grandchild.

We have recently been overhauling our life, which has been emotionally draining. Downsizing, still trying to buy a flat to live in, while arranging to spend half our life in another country for health reasons.

Luckily, I have a very supportive family and circle of friends but still find this time in my life lonely at times. I want to do new things and meet like minded people but am finding this very difficult. I have joined a choir which is fun but in the main it is the evenings I find most trying as most groups or meet ups seem to be during the day. Is there an assumption that once you hit 60 you don't leave one's home after 6 O' clock?
Response from PatriciaB96 made on 22nd Jun 2019 21:11:35
Good evening , I'm 58 and as far as I am concerned , intend to grow old disgacely , even tho I stay at home quite lot because I still care for my tenage son , I dont go to bed that early .

Response from marvelous made on 22nd Jun 2019 23:52:21
Shazzan, That's funny about the not leaving the house after 6 pm! I'm fine with chatting after 6. It seems with the time changes tho that many countries log off before the sun is even down here.
Response from PatriciaB96 made on 23rd Jun 2019 08:44:22
Good morning , I dont my time here is now 8.43 am but I dont get alerts of messages on tablet , enjoy your day .

Response from Shazzan made on 23rd Jun 2019 10:09:08
I wasn't suggesting I go to bed at six rather that finding something to do after six for my age group in my area almost doesn't exist.
Response from PatriciaB96 made on 23rd Jun 2019 10:32:55
Very true , down my end as well , still keep on looking you may get lucky and find something , good luck in that
Response from Shazzan made on 23rd Jun 2019 12:11:31
Thanks Patricia - I have found singing and do go to choir once a week which is great fun especially at Christmas time.

I just joined and am trying to find my around here,,, I turn 62 tomorrow, and have been retired since Dec 2017. I am an avid pet lover, and have MANY rescued unwanted Chihuahua's living with me...ranging in ages from 4 to 15 1/2. Don't hang out with anyone, stay at home with the babies or go to the store,, but do spend a lot of time gardening,,, keeping things alive in the heat is a lot of work,, I hope to make new friends here,,, I will be back on line later, but it is dinner time for the babies, and they are waiting patiently for me to get their dinner going,,, nothing like sad eyes staring at you,,, I hope to meet you soon,,

My name is a combination of two of my Mini Pins that I owned years and years ago,,, not my real name,, that will come later,,,,hope to talk to you soon

Hello everyone. I post under the pseudonym of Captain Jack Fosdyke. That is an alias of course for my name isn't Jack and neither am I a captain. I am, however, an incurable teller of 'Stretchers'. For those unfamiliar with the term, let me explain. A 'stretcher' is a post placed that may be considered a trifle far fetched but is told with such conviction that the casual reader remains in doubt. I have lived a varied and, may I say, an interesting life and though the snows of winter may rest upon my head, the spring of eternal youth flows happily in my heart. The world is what it is and though I've considered it's problems from every angle I'm convinced that nothing I can do will changed it....So I've decided not to bother. If there are similar thinkers out there who prefer light hearted feasts of reason and flows of soul perhaps they'd care to let me know.
Response from Yodama made on 7th Jun 2019 06:46:02
Welcome to these forums captainfackfosdyke, can't wait for your light hearted feasts.
Stretched tales? Love it!
Response from captainjackfosdyke made on 7th Jun 2019 16:44:50
Thank you Yodama for your reply. Truth to tell it came as a surprise for I didn't expect any response. Posting something different isn't always appreciated for oft'times persons prefer what they are familiar with. This has always puzzled me for while we are happy to visit a cinema, a theatre etc to be entertained rarely do we believe 'that' entertainment to be true and yet the fantasy of it is enjoyed. The fact that we are all Silver Surfers allows that we have had a goodish slice of life, during which many amusing incidents must have occurred. It is these incidents, embellished as we see fit, that encourages posts, lifts the spirit, amuses and......most importantly, does no harm and creates no offence.
Response from Yodama made on 8th Jun 2019 11:47:47
As an embellisher, humorist and an eccentric who has in the past ( on these forums) woven tales of fantasy and taken the odd stab at humour...I love your ideas!

I have taken the odd journey into space...
Have you...taken odd journeys anywhere?
Response from captainjackfosdyke made on 11th Jun 2019 22:49:14
Hello again Yodama. Forgive the tardiness of my reply But I've been in the Free State with my local branch of 'The Social Development League' speaking of the benefits of abstinence. We waste our time of course but it salves our conscience that we try. 'Fraid I've never taken a journey, odd or otherwise, into space for being gregarious by nature I would mourn the lack of company.

Of course I could have completely misunderstood your query for there are substances, other than Richard Branson's futuristic space plans or Dr Who's Tardis that can take you on such a journey without leaving the comfort of your armchair. It will never be my intention to pry, but to know a little about whom you correspond with tends to make life easier. Could I ask what part of the world you occupy, what interest you may have. Just innocent bits of information that you may care to share.
Response from marvelous made on 23rd Jun 2019 00:06:28
Captain, You are an absolute hoot and I hope we can correspond. I like your interesting writing style. I'm likely to be far too truthful, the opposite of far fetched, but I can learn the art of giving the truth a spin.

Hello Beauty. Though modern thought frowns upon our once mighty Empire, I do not share that sentiment. Having spent many years under the colours striving to keep that Empire intact I had faced many dangers. I recall one incident when the regiment was billeted on an exposed ridge in the Hindu Kush. Night was falling when we were attacked by a ferocious band of Waziri's intent upon doing us harm. Naturally, the attack was unexpected for Colonel Watt-Wattley (a young and particularly chinless) officer had assured us that the natives were friendly. The Waziri set down a constant, withering fire that wreaked havoc amid our ranks....and in no time at all.

The sands of the desert were red with blood,
Red with the blood of a square that broke,
The gatling was jammed and the Colonel dead,
And the regiment blinded by dust and smoke.

Now, we are all old enough to remember when cliff hangers at the cinema were shown in episodes. It increased the suspense and brought about much discussion as to the outcome. They were happy times so....Would anyone care to add some suspenseful discussion?

Hi. Joined a while ago, then promptly forgot my log in details.

Guess I'm a lost cause. Also dramatically broke my phone so now have a new one and getting to grips with that

Nothing much has changed, still working unsociable hours, still with multiple care roles
Two crazy German shepherd's and several small animals in the house (this includes teenagers)

Yes I'm here, lonely just a taxi now and again..

Have taken up walking and found some wonderful places, Cragside Hall in Northumberland and kielder forrest.. Love nature and attempting photographs.

Glad of the lighter nights and the promise of nicer weather x
