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.
I'll be going to Ireland on the May 4-14 "Enchanted Ireland: Town & Country" trip and also am a solo travel. It's my first Road Scholar trip, so I'm pretty excited. My husband isn't interested in going abroad but I am! I like the idea of luxuriating in my own room, at least on this trip. I'll be 75 next month (February) and thought this would be a great birthday present to myself. I love walking but not 6-7 miles a day. For me, that's too much because I'd like to mingle and chat with the locals more at my own pace. I enjoy my senior Zumba classes, and my usual walks are around 4 miles.
Hi. I'm 68 yo also and love to travel. Currently I'm focusing on national parks, but there are also places out of the US I'm interested in. Would love to travel with another woman. I used to host a travel meetup, but it isn't easy to find other solo travelers. Where do you live? I'm in Colorado. My next trip in May is to the Badlands and area around Rapid City. Never been there so I am driving up. Would love the company if anyone is leaving from Colorado!
