Hi, I'd like to go to Canada - Vancouver/Vancouver Island/VIctoria (and possibly Seattle) sometime between Jan and March next year. I'm interested in exploring co-housing with a view to moving out there. But it looks a great place to explore anyway. Any takers to join me? I seem to have become 59 somehow - but have a young and alternative outlook, and pithy sense of humour. I'm independent and widowed, but it's more fun with a travel companion I think - if we resonate.

Hello. I am Stuart, 72. I live in Sydney but coming to UK in ’16. My wife doesn’t travel, so looking for a companion for a couple of weeks. Have Skype. Address is [email protected]. I’m not sure of plans or dates as yet. Should like to correspond/skype beforehand. Have been making enquiries about a walking holiday in Cornwall, but am up in the air (as usual).

Hi Fi, Have you visited Vancouver Island before?
I joined this site today looking for travel buddies for an up coming trip to New Zealand and Aus. However at the top of the pile of posts was yours which really caught my eye because I live on Vancouver Island. I was wondering why you would want to travel here between Jan and March? We have a rainy season here which stretches usually into April and although we live in by far the mildest part of Canada, due to the high humidity ( 100% give or take a couple) the 5 or 6C temperatures feel really cold. But all weather warnings aside this is a most beautiful part of the world inhabited by warm friendly laid back people. I'm sure after you visit the Island you'll want to move here too.
If I can help you with anything then let me know.

Hi Karl, Thanks for your comments. I haven't been to Canada before. Perhaps it is best to go a little later! It all started with my daughter deciding she's had it with the UK and looking to do some study in Vancouver possibly, or get a work/holiday visa with her BF. It does look beautiful. And I'm interested in co-housing, and it's more advanced in your area, so thought I'd like to take a look. Anyway, I'll let you know when I make firm plans. Have a great trip in Australia!

I am a retired 65yo male, living in Stoke-on-Trent, looking for female friends and also female travel partners for travel either within the UK or abroad, any time during the year. However I only do coach travel as do not wish to fly!
I wish to go on an express coach with Siesta for 11nights (14 days holiday) to Estartit, in June 2021. It would be nice to have a lady to accompany me on this trip. Any other travel, any time, can also be considered.

Any females travelling to Scotland over the next month or so?
I'm an author, film-maker, nature lover and hill-walker planning a trip, but friends too lazy!
Nice walks, scenery, chat and food in Scotland, bliss...
Anyone?

Hi Everyone,
I live in the midlands and gave enjoyed many holidays with friends plus a few solo holidays. My friends are completely put off travelling now but I am still eager. It is though important to meet up with peope you get on with, if you are with someone and you're not on the same wavelength it can be awful. I remember the only time that happened to me with someone I thought knew well, she was a nightmare in most ways,

Hi, I live in Manchester, if you fancy a chat, please get in touch. I also like to travel and like you, have found my friends have become very very cautious now because of Covid-19.

Hi COVECAT,

I wanted to reply to your post but it seems to have disappeared.

I live in London - Putney, and love going on City breaks.

Went to Estepona, in March and just managed to get back before they closed the airport.

Get in touch if you want to meet up.

Regards

Hi, out there because of the lockdown and the need to be wary of travelling at the moment I thought I would finally banish my fears and look for female travel companions. Knowing I would have plenty of time to acustom myself to the reality I have denied myself for so long.
So slowly slowly anyone, Prefer slimish women with a sense of humour and smiling face.
Obviously meeting in person in public before any travel in the future.

Hi folks, I am a keen traveler but if you are single you have no other choice as to travel solo. The problem Is once you get used to it and you keep on traveling solo. Now I am getting fed up of it traveling solo, and naturally like a companion but it is easy said and done. How are you going to find somebody. I find it expensive to travel solo when it comes to searching for accommodation. Not many hotels offer you single rooms. I find it sometimes better to book a double room and sleep in a big bed not the ideal thing but saves money. I find it difficult when you go for a meal especially in the evenings and it is so boring to eat alone. I am bit of the romantic side. Some hotels do have a lovely arranging on a beach with candles and stuff like that then you sit alone. I do not enjoy but you do it as no other choice. Years of solo traveling is getting on my nerves. If anybody is interested please get in touch but doubt it. I live in hope so why not try. If not I keep traveling alone because I am used to it

Hi Babs . Yes, I am from U.K. . I live in Kent coast a place called Hythe. Have you heard of the place? Where are you from? I am hoping to hear from you again.
Take care and be safe.

Hi Charles, I live in Manchester. Yes, I have heard of Hythe, never been there though!!

I have seen you post in another part of this site where you say you were born in Sri Lanka.. I have been there!!! Back in 1999 I visited there with my daughter, it's a lovely place!

It's difficult to go anywhere at the moment with this covid-19 lockdown. Hopefully next year things will be some where near back to normal! LOL

Hi Babs
Thanks for the message.
I have been to Manchester few times. Last time I was there an I was In Old Trafford to watch Genesis reunion tour.
I am happy to hear that you were in Sri Lanka. I go there almost every year. For you the country is changing very fast and maybe you will not recognize it. The changes are mainly in big Towns, such as Colombo and Galle. After 25 years civil war and the places you could visit is possible to visit. No more military check points so they are positive things that I like. Tradition and culture is changing because of the young generation. Tourism was booming before COVID-19 unfortunately it halted the boom completely now. It is very sad because people was making there living out of it. I was promoting or attempting to promote tourism to SL. when COVID-19 arrived. If you are interested please visit my website. http://www.journaltotravel.com .
I am at the moment in Central America exactly in Panama. I been here for the last 2 years traveling. Now I got stuck here in Panama. I was scheduled to return in end of February 2020, but I missed my flight then COVID 19 hit the world. Panama was very quick to react, they imposed a whole day curfew to the whole country to protect us. The police control and restriction to go out only to do grocery shopping. Example me I have a 2 hour window to do my shopping in a week I get 4 hours, that is 2 different days. Then they shut the Airport end of February and no commercial flights in and out of Panama since end of Feb. I think they would like to reopen on 26 this month but I doubt if they open I must get out quick before they shut again. The positive aspect is that COVID 19 did not spread here. I live in remote area and I have no idea about COVID and what is happening in the world until I read or see news.
Nice to hear from you and I hope you keep in touch.
Regards
Charles

Thanks Charles. I am fine and stuck in a little village in the South West of Scotland waiting out Covid-19 and eager to travel. Have missed a few trips already and should be on Islay at the moment. Hope you are keeping safe too. Maggie

Hi David
Do you mean February 2021? Are you sure we can travel any fear of COVID 19. ?
Charles
Response from DavidV3 made on 22nd Jun 2020 12:09:32 > @Charlesb
2021 should be ok. Same as most countries avoid large crowds and large apartments.
As for costs. I only reserve apartments with free cancellation and no credit card needed. So reseve now and only pay 1 week before arrival. So if no flights no cost lost.

Flights. Won't book till international flights back on. Looks like end of August.
Philippines still have curfue 10pm lockdown same for Thailand. Most airlines offer
2 year free ticket exchange. But won't book flight till say January as not sure when I will go February or March. I have a mate who lives in Philippines and done friends in Cambodia an Pattaya
