Hi there.
I discovered the travel bug 2 years ago when I did Liverpool to Hoh Chi Minn via 24 countries, overland in 104 days.
I want to do Kathmandu to Beijing overland via Tibet, Everest base camp, and various other locations in the interior of China like Xian Terracotta Army before the Great Wall and forbidden city of Beijing.
Back packing, buses and train Inc sleepers is the mode of transport and budget hotels and hostels would be the accommodation choice.
Early May is the preferred departure date and 4 to 5 weeks duration.
It's a long shot but anyone who would be intested in joining all or part drop me a line.

Hi! I'm a 61 y/o male from Bellingham, WA, which is in the far northwest corner of the US. I have a small travel budget and will be traveling to certain events in this part of the country.
These are counter-cultural and are generally spiritual, love based events with tent and/or vehicle camping. It could get a bit primitive for a few days and tougher if it lasts longer (think lack or real showers)!
Now that I have frightened off the faint of heart, what I would be grateful for is a semi-normal woman to accompany me. I am honorable.
Also open to couch surfers who may enjoy a stay at my "rustic" mobile home on a Blueberry farm. Again, this is not a "pristine" type of place (think 0 stars!) but it is comfy with Wi-Fi, etc.
We could explore together from here. Looking for barter type situations so no money is exchanged.
I hope to hear from some brave souls! Thanks, and don't forget to laugh, I did!

Hi CarolAnne Welcome to the site. I'm always interested in meeting new people to travel with. Have met several new friends on here and been away. I'm sending you a private chat message.

Hi CarolAnne,

Due to being 12 years older than you, I'm most likely in the too old category.
But as they say " you'll never know if you don't give it a go"
I am an Australian male looking for a travel companion to Central &/or South America.
But first a week or so in your area Sevilla , Cordoba etc.

Pls. let me know your thoughts

Hi there, I'm 54 and looking to travel to Southern India for 10-14 nights from the UK. It will definitely be on a shoestring and, although I don't mind a bit of sightseeing, what I really love is just getting a feel for, and learning about, other other cultures. Id rather opt for homestays and hostels than fancy hotels. I'm not into racing around but equally like to see a variety of things. I love a good hill/ mountain trek and would be open to a spot of yoga/ meditation. Looking for a male or female companion and need to make the trip before the end of March (I know I've left it a bit late!). Anyone fancy joining me?

Hi - if you happen to be planning to stay in Fort Cochin I recommend Sheeba's Homestay - a lovely lady, beautiful breakfasts, most rooms with air conditioning, fantastic price and very well situated. You can find her homestay on AIRBNB. She has guests who keep returning. Maggie

I am a new member and although 82 I still enjoy good health and active.
I play golf (fair weather golfer & not very good either) but enjoy the company and exercise. .
I love going to France with the Touring Caravan for stays lasting anything from 3 weeks to 12 weeks is the longest and enjoy the beaches, the food and cafes and BBQs in the afternoons or evening at the camp site.
Now I am alone I am seeking a Female Companion who may like to join me on a journey into France with the Caravan.
Nothing planned as yet for 2020.

Hi. I'm new and not travelled for 16 years. Young at heart but wouldn't drive in another country (am from Australia) and don't like Tours unless I can get on and off as I please. I need to do a trip in 2020 (for my soul) and at the point I can't decide where. But for example, decided I should maybe see the states and want to travel (in part) along the California coast from la to impossible task it seems on public transport. As well as the eastern states round main, new Hampshire etc. A companion to share the drive with would be great. Or again, perhaps Iceland/Scandi countries and driving would be best . So, I'm thinking autumn or spring (Oz seasons) & if I don't get proactive now, another year will pass. Anyone interested, please contact. Or with info on how to do it alone. P.s. I'm a budget traveller

I'm a young 80 and want to return to Paris in March or April, preferably with an intelligent and curious woman. I'd like to spend about a week and share lodging costs. I like strolling the city, stopping to enjoy the sidewalk life, dining well in the evenings. If we mutually agree there are things we can do together, or we can simply go our separate ways each day. Or a combination of a little of each. I'm a writer and also work in film. You can google me as James Ure. I live in Utah, I do a lot of fly fishing. I'm a non-drinker but I don't mind if you do. Would like to share an Abnb, preferably in the Montorgueil area. I'm open to staying elsewhere.

I do/I've done a lot of independent travel with friend of both sexes and also joined group tours where you can opt to share rooms and some where I've paid for my own room if I think it's a fair supplement. There are still places outside Europe I want to go to whilst I still can (I'm 71 ) but either I don't have the confidence anymore to go independently or I can't find a tour with an itinerary and/or price that suits me. I'm currently thinking of on an overland group tour to Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia next year priced from £2445 ex UK but I don't want to pay £595 for 13 nts single supplement even though its 4* hotels. It's a small (though 24 isn't that small imho) group tour if anyone is interested. Other option is a similar itinerary in 3*/4* but larger group with a different co. (saving £335 single supplement) and cheaper (£1000 for 11 nts excluding flights) but I'd want to add nights onto that at the beginning (Baku) and end (Yerevan) so I can see everything want. Wondered if anyone is interested?

I'm looking at a cruise on Holland America to South America and Antarctica in January or February 2021. Most of my travelling is solo, but I think a friend for this trip would be wonderful - sharing costs, safety and all the fun. Not looking for a mate or partner, just someone who is like minded re this trip.

Hello ,

I`m hoping to spend time next year exploring the island of Crete with a chap - on a platonic basis - and preferably someone with an interest in ancient history and always keen on sampling local food and wine. I`m quite flexible regarding the time of year.

Hi there, Turned 50 this year and I have decided to try new things this year. I am hoping to do a cruise in June 2020 - dates/locations flexible as it is my first one! Tempted to go solo but the single travel supplements are crippling. Interested in Med/Greece - 7 days +. I would also like to do a week on land after (maybe Santorini). I am based in Ireland but the UK is only a hop, skip and a jump.

Great idea, Christiana. It might be a lot of fun to get away with a whole bunch of strangers and simply enjoy the company.
