I'm 63 and still work full time so one or two trips a year is good for now.  I like both domestic and abroad, but no cruises.  I prefer to visit touristy areas but stay outside them to get a feel for authenticity.  I like to savor time in each area and not feel rushed to cover lots of ground.  I would love to ride the train from one end of Russia to the other.  I prefer Europe, but am open to other areas.  I live in Mobile, Alabama and am a non-smoker.

Like your choices of destinations. I'm getting in shape this year for my trip to Tanzania in November (though I'd love to go to Italy then!)  When I'm fitter, I'll be ready for some of those hiking vacations!



I went to Tanzania and Kenya in May of 2007.  I was lucky to be there for the Great Migration.  If part of your trip involves going to a Masai village, bring something for the kids, not candy, maybe balloons.  I wish I had brought some decks of cards for the teacher.

I love the idea of meeing up at the AARP convention in Las vegas to exchange names and numbers.  If anyone has been to the convention before and can suggest a "where" that would be great - this is my first time there.

I will be retiring in a few months and I'm ready to start travelling again.  I'm going to Italy with the local chapter of AAA in November.  In the next few years I would like to go to Costa Rica, cruise the Danube and/or the Rhine, hike in Peru, hike at Glacier National Park. Although I have done solo travelling, I would like to travel with a companion. I live in very southern Maine, next to NH. I belong to several Meetips groups, but I prefer to travel with a few people and not a group of 40 women. 



Sounds interesting.  I also would like to travel with a few people with similar interests.  I love taking the trains around Europe.  I have taken a cruise with two other women and it was great because we were together but could take separate tours on the islands and meet up for dinner.  I good way to get a taste of different islands t see if you want to go back and explore.

I am from Indianapolis.  I would love to travel more.  I am still employeed (50) so my time and finances are limited.  I like art shows, antiques, animals, and lake side anything.  I enjoy heading up north to Michigan, Wisconsin, etc... but would also enjoy heading south to some of the beautiful country side there.

I also love flea markets/yard sales.  Have you ever been to Shipshawana, IN flea market? I would like to do that one this year.   My sister and I are going to try to do the longest yard sale from Mich. to Alabama in Aug.

Meeeting in Vegas at the convention sounds like a great idea.  Where shall we meet?



I am also interested in cruising and any U S travel, as well.

Could meet for dinner on Saturday night or brunch on Sunday morning.  Would either of those work for you?



Sunday morning brunch would be best and easier to get to with all the crowds, Sat. night is hectic.

Your RV trip sounds like fun. Glacier NP is on my bucket list. I live in Houston - you'll probably come thru here on way to Austin. We should talk. I also want to see Australia beyond Sydney. Did a pretty thorough NZ tour years ago, but could be persuaded to go back. I'm retired, mid-60s, widowed. I have a big trip to Tanzania coming up in Nov., so don't know how much other major travel I want to take on, but I'm loving your travel ideas and sense of adventure!
