Hi all. I'm new. Want to go everywhere or anywhere but need some courage. Lost my amazing independence somewhere along the line. Be good to find a companion to share travel costs (car/accommodation/navigating) with. Pretty chilled. Love history, architecture, nature. Needing adventure in 2020. Any interest or suggestions, great. How all are finding their way

I also have many other interests in life, of course. I love travelling, new technologies, watching funny old British orAmerican sitcoms (watching Frasier and Miranda these days) docs about History... I am not a very good cook but if anybody is interested in some Spanich recipe, just ask. Also about places to visit here...

Hello, everybody. I have also just joined in. Still trying to learn how to use Silversurfers.

Recently Widowed, 66 years old, Spanish living in Spain, wishing to make new friends online.

I am an open talkative person, friendly and willing to hear and learn from you. I specially would like to talk to ladys recently widowed like me. Above all because we can understand each other feelings very well and support and encourage to go on. I think it is very important that we talk about our dear ones who have left us but remain with us. Some people, after one year of our loss seem embarrassed to talk about it and keep on saying "Come on, you should be ok by now" ... I am not a mourner but need to share feelings and memories with other people in my situation.

Hey there. Delighted that there are fellow nuisances in the world - I think that's a different phrase for people who take and interest and want to get things done! I've retired early to care for my 92 year old mum and, after 16 years in a secondary school with 1500 teenagers, I'm thoroughly enjoying the change. I have a degree in pootelling and generally walking about in my usual Dolly Daydream persona. Love reading, cooking, handicrafts and random acts of kindness. Basically, I'm pretty happy in my skin!

Hello all! I've just joined! I'm an amateur portrait painter using Acrylics. I'm interested in various types of music,and way back in the distant past I was a pianist.
My spare time is spent considering the meaning of life, gardening,waiting in queues,sleeping,and generally being a nuisance.!

New to online chat so not sure if I'm making comments in the proper place! Senior citizen in the U.S. with many interests including tennis, genealogy, dogs and books. My ancestors came from Aberdeen, Scotland, northern Ireland and Norfolk so I'm spending lots of time tracking them down.
