I want to travel moe, but the idea of going alone does not appeal to me. I used to travel alot because I was in the travel industry. I have traveled with other travel agents and I used to traveled with my husband when he was alive.
Now as a widow, I long to go on short trips more often and take at least one overseas trip every year...before I get OLD !LOL I am 62 year old now and I really would prefer to go with other my own age. I don't go far at night, as a matter of fact I rather stay near my hotel at night, and go a few places in the day. By local bus or taxi.
Everything is better if you have compatible company to share things with, whether its theater, a meal or a taxi . Now we don't have to do everything together. One may want to just relax all day. I know I don't want someone who has to go all the time.
To have to save for a special trip is fun, because you have something to look forward to together. Credit cards are okay but I don't want to go on a trip knowing I have to spend the next year paying for it..I'd rather be saving for my next trip than paying on a credit card.
Does anyone else feel as I do? I think I want to go to inexpensive. but beautiful Portugal in 2009.
