When this is all over I would like...

Hi everyone...I'm new to the site and just had a brainwave! I'm 64 and I live in The Peak District. Like many 'older' people I've found myself becoming quite isolated.

My 'regular' travel partner (my son...had him late in life) is going off to uni soon and also of course wants to mix more with his peers than a copy of Victor Meldrew.....only joking!

Anyhoo. to get to the point....what I want is to contact like-minded travel lovers who may be interested in joining me for some....well, travel. The UK or abroad...either are good. The last away day I had....5 nights actually...was to Stockholm....wonderful city and country! Hejda for nu

I have just joined the site, I think that sounds like a very good idea and I would be interested in UK travel.

I think the chat button is private so best to arrange a time.

A cautious yes not interested in travel for the sake of it but more for a cultural experience. But having spent a quiet 5 years in France then nearly three back in the UK I am very keen for new experiences and company. Tell us more about yourself so everyone knows if you would be good company 🙂

Hi Streudal,

I don't know what I am supposed to say to seem like 'good company'. 🙂

I'm not a convicted murderer, I like culture rather than a 'beach holiday', I love city breaks but only in cities where there is a history of 'culture'.

On that subject what is 'culture' anyway? What i enjoy and what another may enjoy can be very differing things.

Perhaps we could have a private chat?

I can tell you anything here to seem like 'good company' all online sites though what you are told and what is true can be two different things!

If you really do want to know more about me then message me!
