Old Bloke for Trips

Travel Forums Travel Companions Old Bloke for Trips

1. Posted by Zicky (Budding Member 3 posts) 2w Star this if you like it!

Let’s cut to the chase...I’m a 72 yo bloke from Brisbane who intends doing 2 trips every year to places such as....(in no particular order)...Vietnam, Laos, Spain, great beaches anywhere, USA, Jordan, Oman, Israel, Oahu North Coast beaches, Cuba...reaaaaally want to go to Cuba, Sri Lanka, Heron Island, etc.....oh, and some Australian campervan trips (never camped before but...??)
I’m well travelled, articulate (well, considering I’m an Aussie), good communicator, slightly extroverted who loves beaches (did I mention that?) , art galleries, quirky cafes, good company, beer and wine, walks on a beach, etc. Looking for a companion, male or female, who shares my dislike of single supplement fees on group tours and also likes trips pour deux that WE organise OURSELVES.
OK, get off Facebook, Instagram, etc. and reply to me so we can get started. Oops, should have mentioned that I’m booked on a group tour to India in March 2019 but available other times. Let’s go.
Ps..looking for a great travel partner, not a romance...but if you were 60+ female that would be magnificent. Let’s face it ...most of us enjoy the opposite sex for company a lot of the time.

So Colin, what's it to be? Are you "looking for a companion, male or female..." or a "60+ female"? Perhaps a dating site would be more apt - this isn't a dating site.

I trust your “moderator” skills are better than your “comprehension” skills Boris for I don’t want to have a romantic affair with you....or anyone else. I enjoy travel but prefer a female companion. One obvious reason for this choice is that many more older single females travel than older single males thus increasing my success chance. FYI Boris, for an upcoming I did a similar post on another site....received many replies - probably (my guess) 5 were serious...4 females and one male. I chose and have booked with the male. Read into that what you will Boris.
Have a really wonderful day young man.

Quoting Zicky

I don’t want to have a romantic affair with you.

Haha - mutual!

We get lots of odd-looking requests here - some dodgy, some less so. But obviously anyone sitting at a keyboard could type in anything and nobody but the poster would know the truth in it (mind you, 72 year old Aussie isn't a line that anyone would expect to book the young and innocent). The piece above the PS seems straight-forward enough - it didn't need the PS.
