Hello!  I just retired in January, 2014 and I am very interested in becoming part of a group looking to do some travelling!  I really want to go to Alaska next year and would really be interested in many different travel opportunities!

My logic for omitting cruises is because you can only visit a location for a day or two tops, and then at night you have to be back on the ship.  I like my freedom.

I am hoping to meet a few females who are interested to gathering together to travel once or twice each year. We can all get acquainted via email and perhaps by the end of this year or whenever the time is right, we can plan our trips and off we go.

Is anyone interested in this idea? Your thoughts?



Yes, the idea sounds wonderful! I am on Maui, and would love more info!

I started reading this topic from the beginning and decided that I'd skip to the end to see if any trips were taken by anyone who posted here.  Have you been on a trip with a companion you found on this site?  How did it go?  Would you do it again?  Do you have any advice for the rest of us?

 

If you posted within the last year and have not been on a trip, would you share the reason why you still haven't taken the plunge?  Is it due to a hesitancy to make plans?  Have you not read any responses that struck a chord in you that the person might be a "good fit" for a travel partner?

 

I have been reading up on "Road Scholar" trips and think that would be a neat way to meet potential travel partners...say if a half dozen or so of the women on this site booked the same trip and met at the Road Scholar venue, spent 4 to 5 days together with that group, then decided if there was a future in going on other trips with people they met that way.  To me, it just seems like a safe, careful way to get to know others.

 

As far as cruises, I am mostly in agreement but I am interested in Viking River Cruises.  My friends who have taken them rave about the experience...small groups, opportunities to mingle with and make friends among other guests, great food and wine...what's not to like?

 

Anyone wish to respond?  ~  Mimi

I find this site really cumbersome. Post get lost, can't findmy way back, etc. Any way I love traveling. For the lst 3 years I've gone to awesome places, solo & w/ my CA niece. This year I wnt to AARP convention in Boston.I was a bit disappointed w/ that. Glad I bought my passport, and made my return t New Oreans for a week later. I caught Greyhound to Monteal! Really enjoyed the ride thru NH,VT! No language barrier because English as 2nd language pervades culture. Quebec was beautiful & 2 satisfy my love of Europe, I plan to visit Canada again.  I won't be going on long journeys anytime soon as my 93 year old disabled mom is back w/ me. But having gone on Scan/Russia last year that inclued Helsinki, Stockholm, Talliin, Riga, & St. Petersburg all w/ landtours, I'm good.  I fell in love w/ Europe. The care for environment, & food safety very impressive. There is a lot gong on in Europe now, but there are places I still want 2 see. I've been to Hawaii, Alaska, Caribbean & Mexico. Keep it coming. I like to read of others travels also.

Thank you Astraea.  I appreciate your taking the time to let me know how to use the site better.  I've been having the worst time trying to figure it all out.

SENDING A PRIVATE MESSAGE

Message 30 of 249 (2,153 Views)

To send a private message to someone:

 

  • Click on their screen name, to go to their page
  • On the right side about 1/2 way down the screen, is a large "CONTACT ME" section
  • Right ABOVE the red button to add as a friend, there's a blue link to "send this user a private message"
  • Click on that link

Just as a Common Sense Warning:

 

  • Don't ever post your personal e-mail address publically in any post; it's dangerous & a violation of AARP's Terms of Service (TOS)
  • Don't ever respond to a personal e-mail someone else posts publically, because that gives them YOUR e-mail address, and you really don't know anything about them for sure here.
