There are many threads on both the Senior Travel and Solo Travel forums started by those seeking travel companions.
Whilst I do understand that it can be nice to have someone to share with, the Internet is not a very safe place for such a project, even TA is ultimately an unregulated site....
Not to mention that in reality, such threads are "solicitiations" and thus, technically not allowed on TA.
This seems to be a contentious view, to some, who feel that zapping such threads, or advising against is unfriendly.
As we are on the Senior Travel Forum, here, then I would hope that folk with the benefit of some age and wisdom, would see that this is not the case, and that other TA members just want to see you safe!
Here is a new thread I have made for the Solo Travel Forum, trying to explain and help. It contains links to other, more safely regulated websites for finding travel companions.
Maybe on THIS forum, others can add links in this thread, to similar sites, more appropriate to the senior traveller, if they know of any?
I am not a TA Staffer, just an ordinary member like you!
I am interested in travel in many forms, but most of all, in travelling safely!!
So let's be careful out there, but have some fun,
