Hi Zabi

I emailed them a while ago but got no reply so guess the group may have folded, which is a shame. Will send you a private chat regarding holidays

Think I might be too late for your group but sounds really good. I have recently retired and looking to meet new people in my area. Interested in travelling and would love to meet like minded people to share the fun of seeing new places.

I agree it’s Richard that I dislike eating alone and can find things to do during the day to fill my time. So finding a group of like minded people would be good.

I’m live in Hertfordshire and don’t have any commitments apart from an aging Father and helping with the grandchildren

Hope your travel group got going bet I am too late now,
I am a 64 year old male who likes to go away 2 or 3 times a year.

I have been using agents who specialise in singles holidays, think they exploit us a bit as their charges are really high. I hate going alone as the saddest thing is eating alone in the evening. I can always find something to do in the daytime.

I retired 6 years ago so can go any time, do not have any commitments apart from babysitting and with my sisters helping my mum out as my father past away last year. Nearly forgot, live in Hetfordshire

I sometimes travel alone which doesn't bother me since I can please myself what I do. However, I agree with you that eating alone in the evening isn't very pleasant. I think it's more difficult for a woman. I've never been on a singles holiday since they are no cheaper than going on a group holiday and paying the single supplement.

Hi Richard, If you or your followers are thinking of escaping the harsh winter months of the UK and spending the winter in a relatively warmer climate, you should consider Malta. I have an apartment in Qawra which is brand new and can accommodate up to 3 couples as there are three bedrooms. Qawra is very close to the Bugibba bus terminal where most places in Malta are one bus route away. Transportation is cheap, and there is so much to see in this small but full of culture island on the edge of Europe. I have a listing on Airbnb if you care to visit.

Hoping to hear from you or your followers

Hi Jennie2 I hope to be there at the Three Willows 12.30 pm.

That's great, look forward to meeting you.

I am planning to be there at 12.30 but as it is a lengthy road trip, I may be a little late.

Do we need to wear red carnations or carry rolled up copies of the FT?
Response from Jennie2 made on 7th Mar 2017 19:17:14
Look out for the yellow jacket ..... can't miss it 🙂
Response from Travelthelonelyplanet made on 8th Mar 2017 08:35:09
Ah cool, the yellow jacket, I have one of those but mine is probably more basic; I will leave it behind
