Hi all. I live in Staffordshire and am an avid wildlife enthusiast. I've been studying birds for over 35 years and I'm looking at starting a small group to teach people my knowledge while enjoying the beautiful countryside.

Hi 'Maltloaf'
I think we've corresponded before, so thought I'd wish you all the best for 2019. Probably too far away from you, as I'm based in Surrey, but if you're ever down this way, would love to meet up.
Kind regards 'Beauty'

Yes we have chatted before... Am not having much luck finding a holiday companion.....
.Perhaps I am the only one from my area .
Belated Happy New year to all.

Response from Beauty made on 5th Jan 2019 15:55:41
Hi Cazz
Just seen your post....always interested in cruising.....easy way to see parts of the world far away....Smidge outside your age range, but hopefully, you're flexible.... Hope to hear from you. I'm in Surrey, where are you?
Response from Rustler made on 6th Jan 2019 17:40:15
Hi Cazz28,
Cruising is on my list of things to do, depends on when and where. I am 67 but fit and active.

Hello I'm Julie and I'm in Plymouth
Anyone from around this area?
Response from Rustler made on 6th Jan 2019 17:33:21
Hi Julie,
I live near St Austell, Cornwall. I joined before Christmas, and posted asking if there were any other members from Cornwall, no response as yet. Maybe we are the only south west members.

I've just retired (early) and one of my plans is to continue travelling, but on a budget. I'm a fit and active amd single 61 year old who likes to get into the natural world, happy camp outdoors, go on treks etc, but also like the luxury hotels from time to time. I have a friend or two who likes to come along, but as I've just retired, this will not be as often as I like. My next ventures will be in Africa and South America, but I also plan to buy a motor home and get out and about in the UK and in Europe. Anyone have a similar outlook to this?

Hello there!
I have a healthy 86 year old father who has travelled extensively and still going strong! He recently returned from a trip to the Galapagos Islands and in 2020 wants to take a 78 day cruise that leaves from Bristol on 6/1/20, which travels the length of Western Africa, South Africa and returns via the Indian Ocean visiting the Seychelles, Maldives and Sri Lanka. What a great way to avoid the British winter!
The trip for a single person is very expensive. However, if an inner twin cabin is shared it reduces the cost radically to £6,759 per person. He is looking to share a cabin with another who also seeks to avoid the British winter and see some beautiful places in the world.
if interested, please don't hesitate to get in touch. Cabins are going fast - which means the price goes up!

Hi, thinking about trying a HF walking holiday in the UK, three to seven days, sometime, maybe late Jan or Feb/March. Walks vary in length, full board, single rooms, reasonably priced. Anyone interested in going or anyone been and can share any advice.

Hi Anyone in the North West aged 60s-70s who is tired of traveling alone? I love holidays mainly to Europe and would love a friendly companion to travel with, share a drink and see the sights of wherever we may be! I live close Manchester Airport and go on a holiday around 6 times a year both UK based and Europe. Looking forward to any replies.

Hello Susan 1943, I would love to find a travel companion while I am fully able to take advantage of active holidays. I live in east Manchester and am handy for the airport by train.
I posted here in early March, I think it was. I f you feel like scrolling back that far!
This site is a bit of a handful, I'm not sure if they notify people who post on here.
I hope you find this reply, and look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Denis 11
Great to read your post and what a journey you're planning. Am already committed to a couple of trips during this time, but I'm sure you'll find someone on here to accompany you. If you're planning any travel later in the year, please let us know.
All the best Beauty
