What we're about

Welcome all boomers, singles or couples from their mid-40s who love to travel, who are looking for travel buddies for specific travel dates and destinations.

If you have always had a desire to travel, join us and make new friends, learn from each other and maybe find a travel buddy. Share ideas, travel experiences and suggest ideas for future trips - day trips, short trips, some longer in time and culturally-focused adventures too.

If you are single or solo and hate paying single supplement fees, begging friends to go on vacation, or just don't like planning trips we are the group for you!

This is also a great group to find travel partners for trips you develop and need people to join!

I will also post trip ideas and my own definite plans, anyone interested is more than welcomed to join!

Trips will include independent as well as partially or fully escorted trips. Looking forward to seeing you soon on a trip!

Happy Travels!
