New to Silversurfers

Hello, I am a new member, age 66, female. I've traveled solo as well as with companions, always interested in hearing from fellow travelers. Live in the USA, have traveled abroad several times, and have seen much of my own country. I am always interested in learning more about different places. Retired school teacher. Any other retired teachers out there? Will be traveling solo in December 2018 on Norwegian Cruise Lines, to The Bahamas and Florida. Was in Bermuda with the same cruise line in June 2017. Norwegian has very nice solo traveler accommodations and a meeting lounge and solo cruise activities director on board. Nice! Met many great folks, both from USA and abroad traveling solo. Of course, it is always to have a travel companion, too. If anyone has plans to tour our State of Texas, I also wish to do so. It is the one State I have not yet toured. My Texas visits have been limited to changing planes in Dallas/Fort Worth. So, if there is anyone out there among senior travelers planning a trip to the USA and, in particular, to Texas, I'd be happy to hear from you! Thank you!

Hi Harriet
I am new on here but also new to cruising. I would like to cruise to either Caribbean (Cayman Islands and Aruba) in particular. I would also love to see Hawaii. I have only been to Florida and New York in the USA but there are loads of places I would love to visit, Texas being one. I am a young 66 years old female. I am good with my own company but its nice to have company for dinner etc.

It would be so nice to have an adventure.

Harriet: My name is Sue Hamby and I have a PhD in Curriculum & Instruction from Texas A&M University. I have been traveling internationally since 1967 and have been to all the continents and many of the different countries. I love to cruise and am looking for a travel partner. I have some friends that travel with me but they have found husbands so now are interested in traveling with their husbands. I am an active 80 year old. This year, I have already taken American Queen Steamboat trip from Nashville to New Orleans, been to London (solo), spent time volunteering in an orphanage in Tanzania, was in Australia in June, will be in Japan this month, in October will be in Poland, and November fly to London again and then sail back on Queen Mary II so you can see I am active. I am also an author and my latest book is "Turning Your Scars into Stars: A Journey from Mourning to Joy". I am also on You Tube if you type in Dr. Sue Hamby. It is not that I have a lot of money but know how to travel inexpensively. Name of book I am working on now is "Globetrotting 101: How to Travel More for Less". Also, I have a website, that you can contact me through. I have been married 61 years and am still married but my husband (age 82) is living in Indiana with his 42 year old girlfriend. although we are still friends.I live in Central Texas and I agree that you need to see our great state. I would be happy to hear from you. Sue
