What we're about

40's-60's are our most active and productive years! And yet...it's not so much fun being single! Especially when it comes to travel...

There are so many places we want to visit, so many cultures we would like to explore and different cuisines to taste! And what better way to do it, but with friends, close to our age and equally curious and adventurous!

This is a group for middle-aged single travel enthusiasts, who are young at heart and want to enjoy the best years of their lives with like-minded individuals. We plan some long-distance trips but we also do a lot of local activities, where we can meet face-to-face: dining out, scavenger hunts, wine tasting and local one-day trips.

Having these fun local activities, gives us the opportunity to meet new people, make friends and create new relationships, with a little help of a common interest - travel. Let's explore the word, near and far, together!
