Travel friends
« on: Mar 20, 2016, 08:25:20 PM »
Hello. I am looking for people who would be interested in travelling or going on holiday together. I am single as of a few months ago and this has limited travel possibilities a bit as friends aren't always available when I am. I am a 37 year old professional working in London in the city. I am friendly, sane and down to earth and a few of the things I like are going to art exhibitions, meeting friends for dinner or a drink, art house cinema and going for walks in the countryside. I have more of a quiet and relaxed personality than a loud and energetic one but I can easily chat with someone for hours, or swap silly stories to make each other laugh, if we have lots to talk about. I am open minded about where to travel - I'd be interested in city breaks, beach holidays, adventure travel or anything really and the budget is open. If people don't have much money I am fine with staying in cheaper accommodation but I am equally open to some more expensive places too. I don't mind how old you are ( I have friends ranging from twenties to fifties) or where you are, as long as you are fairly easy going and have an interest in travel of some sort.

If you're interested or want to ask any questions then send me a message.  :)

No, that isn't me. I haven't been here before. I didn't realise someone else had the same name.

I would be keen.  I have a partner but like to do short trips especially activity holidays not too strenuous...

Hello Sapphire,
This sounds very interesting as I like travelling and very often I do it on my own. I am quite easy in terms of where and how, although time is a constraint for me . Where and when are you thinking of going next?

I have just seen the walkingwomen and womenholidays pages. Too bad that I did not hear about this before. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Blue Monday  :)

Great - I'll send you a message. Sorry for the delay in response, work got really busy but has calmed down now so I'll be looking at some trips! 

Croatia does look lovely.
