Hi everyone!

I thought I would tell you my success story about a travel companion I met right here on travellers point!!! I love to travel but never have anyone to go with but then I saw a post from someone looking for a travel companion. He was planning to go to Zimbabwe, Malawi and Mozambique and since that is close to my home (South Africa)I jumped at the opportunity! Anyway, we emailed for a while and then met up in Joburg. We had an awesome time - he did the first part of the trip on his own cause I had to work and then we flew to Dar es Salaam together and on to Zanzibar. After that we planned a totally spontaneous safari to Ngorogoro Crater and the Serengeti in Tanzania! It was the most fantastic experience ever! Thanks TP for a great site and for making this possible!!!

Can I have an invite to the wedding..?

... are we to assume this is more than just a friendship...? So curious! I'm trying to read between those lines....

LOL!!! why is everyone assuming we're getting married!!!?? We are just very good friends - I have a boyfriend in the UK but he doesnt dare tell me who I can or can't go on holiday with!!! I love travelling and meeting new people so I guess thats why I love this site so much!

i'll agree with you there-this site is great and full of great people!

and good on you for not having such a posessive boyfriend-he must be one in a million!

hehe... I was only teasing, really... But I took the liberty of looking at your profile before I posted the first reply and it says you are single... And, the title of the thread, "Success!", kinda implies great things... ;)

It's great that you had such a great time... Thank you for sharing it...

I'll be sure to invite you all to the wedding if and when there ever is one!!! For now though I am quite happy being single!!! I guess I should have thought more about the title of my thread first hmmmmmm....Well we had an awesome time so I suppose thats why it was a success - I'd love to post some pics on the site but I have no idea how to :( Any advice would be appreciated!:)
