This is your home to discuss Single Travel, whether one travels Independently, or on Group tours which make provisions for Single Senior Travelers! This is also the home where one can connect with other Single Travelers, so we don't get caught with Single Travel Supplement fees! Now, let me also make it clear, one can be married or single, it's just that the Member will be traveling alone, for one's mate might be unable to travel with them, and they want a safe situation for their loved one! Welcome aboard, and happy posting! Shelby
Yes, I agree - the Greek Islands!! I just came back from there a couple of months ago. The food is wonderful, the beauty is captivating, and the people are soooo friendly!! I am already ready to go back!!

RE: Eat, Pray, Love: Where Would You Go?
To eat, and pray and love, I would go to one place only in this world- the Greek Islands. A most beauteous place in this world, with the aqua waters, many beaches, friendly people and excellent food. Had my first lamb and first goat (home raised) a wealth of seafood (you can buy it off a truck in the town! fresh caught that morning!) as well as home grown vegetables, wonderful globes of tomatoes, aubergines, zuchinni, and feta made locally - and home pressed olive oil (that our friends gifted us with upon leaving, a 2 ltr. water bottle with the BEST ever olive oil I have ever eked out and enjoyed...) on our trip to Skopelos. The folks we met there were so friendly and accomodating, great places to stay, a great beach, a great taverna up the road that had the most wonderful food - wonderful seafood and so much more. Athens, don't bother with other than seeing the antiquities, you'll have to fly in there but the city isn't that nice- you have to see the temples for sure, but catch the ferry first opportunity. Go to the islands for people that really know the meaning of life- good food, good friends, religion and nature. They take their life seriously there- it is hard- but so much welcome and insightful and wonderful! Seriously! We saw a REAL Greek wedding there, and got to know our hosts very well, and we yearn for a trip back there always. No it's not a Mamma Mia moment, this was before the movie and this is bigger than that. Beautiful place, a slow pace on the islands - everything shuts down from noon til 3- time to rest and take it easy- every island has wonderful cafes, quaint and awesome accomodations, transportation is available for rental or bus...there is so much there I just cannot give the words to it all. The most peaceful, delightful, delicious place in my opinion (other than Italy!) that I would be so honored, grateful and happy to go back to once again.
Thank you for the Single Travel Company website. The trips look wonderful and I would like to be matched to a room mate. Looking forward to starting my Eat, Pray, Love journey with the Single Travel Company Tours.
