Attn: Females - Are you Interested in meeting other ladies to travel with?

Hi, I am a female that loves to travel. I do a lot of solo traveling. I've done my share of research on single travel clubs. I love the concept, but the prices they charge is overwhelming. I am willing to travel by any mode except cruises.

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?

Hi Jeanie, 

I am 57 and looking for travel friends also. I live in NW Nebraska and teach special education in the area. My son finally has graduate from college and has a professional job and mom has more money for herself - lol. I am a teacher and can't go on your cruise but would certainly entertain traveling around December 17th-23rd.  I have never been on a cruise, so I would certainly like a cruise. I met a lady from AARP in June and we went to Boston and Bar Harbor ME- throughly enjoyed the trip.  We did talk about possibly going to San Deigo and LA around Christmas time. Let me know if you might be intersed in planning a trip either around Christmas or next summer.  Some place of interest are NW USA-Oregon,Washington, San Deigo/LA, Banff Canada, Costa Rica to name a few.

Hi my name is Marcia and I am 66, still work, and live in Prince George county Va, just outside of Richmond, Va.  I would love to travel duirng the year to see new and exciting places.  I have a daughter and we go to the Florida and carribean many times which I love but would love to see other places . Now  my daughter is married and she has her own life and cant really get together as often to visit other areas.  I agree with you on cruises as I love to be able to site see and visit as long as i want without having to go back on a ship.  My only problem which isnt really a problem is I am not versed too well getting around in airports and checking in etc as my daughter has always been in charge.  But would love the idea  thanks

Hallmark is one of the main reasons I still have cable;) 

 

They have the most decent, and moral programming, with only a couple of exceptions I've seen on hallmark "main" channel.  But Hallmark Movies and Mysteries seems very good;)

I would love to travel with a gal that we both figured we would get along.  We could go just for a weekend, or more, and see how it went.  I can go for 3 months (give or take a month) during the Summer, and contribute $700 a month on expenses.  I have to maintain my home on the West Coast, but the rest I can blow on what I want.

 

My preference would be to go with a gal, but if the right "kind" of man came along that didn't expect us to play "house" than that could work too.  Who knows, maybe I would end up wanting to play house.  In that case, I would hope he felt the same, lol;)

 

Anyway, I'm open to the idea because I'm going crazy in retirement, love to travel, know my way around an RV, and like to cook, no drooling, yet;) Denise

Hi MayMay, 

I certainly would love to travel this summer, I have all summer off and am itching to do some fun things summer of 2018.  I am in NE Nebraska, love national parks, the coastal areas, mountains, lakes  but not much of a hicker.  Would love to plan some sort of one to two week trip.  Could fly out of Denver to almost anywhere and it's cheaper to have two people.  Have been eyeing the Coastal Starlight Amtrack from Los Angeles to Seattle.  Plus the trails and rails.  Well enough babbling.  Please contact if you are seriuos,  Kim

hello,  I went two years ago in august  for 2 weeks for the first time with my girlfriend too **bleep** , and  then we ended up at the grand cannon, we went by amtrack.  I thought that was some way of traveling.  and my girlfriend and I had so so many other trips we were thinking of,  but she passed away in Sept.  and I also was thinking that I dont want too give up traveling for 2018,  and I dont want too travel on my own. I enjoy craft fairs, sitting outside under an umbrella eating outside  , walking, but  just simple walking, going in and out of the stores,  laughing, companionship,  I still work full time,  and I myself live in Sloatsburg, NY  ,  I am going too be 60 years old,     Sharon    smaydet@ramapo.edu

I'm definately interested in meeting travel buddies.  I'm retiring at the end of this month (12/17) and would love to get out and see how others live.  Would love to travel to the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence River, as well as many other places. I live in Texas, near Austin.

Hi, 

I must say I am jealous of someone being able to retire(congrats), I still have about 10 years.  I am interested in traveling but would have to be in June -end of July. That area looks fanstastic to find adventures.  Are looking to fly or drive? I am in western Nebraska, could meet in Iowa if drive or easily fly out of Denver.  Some other ladies I know have been tossing the idea around of Amtrak's Coast Starlight, which extends from the northerly reaches of Seattle down to Los Angeles,  $97.00.      Kim

Hi Kim.  Thank you for responding and for the congrats. The end of June or July sounds good....hopefully peaceful weather around that time.  I'm originally from western Iowa and my mother had moved to western Nebraska before she passed so I'm very familiar with your area as well.  I'm up for traveling by car, plane, train...the seat of my pants (haha), whatever time allows.  The train trip you mentioned sounds fun as well.  Barbara

I'm very interested in a travel mate.  I've driven, by myself, across the US several times stopping at historic sites, national parks, etc. Would like to find mate with similar interest.  I'm an active 70 yrs old, who still has a long bucket list.  If interested contact me!

I would certainly go for a trip, I'm in Nebraska and would love to see more of Este Park in Colo.  Where are you.  I do like to keep costs down not staying at 5 star places.  But could pay for my share.  I am 56 yrs old, not too good on long walks though.  Have hip replacements both side.  Can walk though fine as long as it is not too far. Enjoy sightseeing from car, shorter excursions ect. Dining out.   Kim C
