I am 68 year old female who travels on RS trips solo---because my husband has not yet retired---and I would like to know if there is anywhere on this site that solo travelers post a little bit about themselves and what trips they are contemplating so that other solo travelers might get to know others and perhaps plan trips together. I have seen this on discussion boards on Rick Steves travel website, but have not found anything similar on this site. I love to travel, and will travel solo by necessity, but would much prefer to meet others and travel with someone I know a little about. I have limited funds and cannot usually afford to pay the single supplement to stay in a room by myself.
Thanks for the compliment. I think most RS travelers are the same. Maybe not as vocal or as addicted to the Internet as I. I have traveled since birth and sometimes, back in the day, overseas alone. My mother walked me to the plane and my grandparents meet us on the other side of the Atlantic. I also traveled solo for work so am comfortable traveling alone. I understand some people have always had either a spouse or a partner to travel with and stepping out on their own is a big step. RS allows for baby steps in traveling solo.
