Travel companions FAQ

Posted by somtam2000 on 25/2/2009 at 08:04

Just a quick note, this forum is for people looking for others to travel with -- not sleep with... by that I mean it's not a dating forum! So, if you're looking for a travelmate, post as much information as you're comfortable doing. As we don't have a "private messaging" thing on Travelfish, you will have to post email addresses at some stage (or organise to meet-up somewhere), but I'd suggest not entering your email address in your opening post -- wait till you've had some responses -- and u ...

Is Meeting People on the Road a Thing of the Past?

Posted by exacto on 25/4/2022 at 15:12

I was chatting with long-time Travelfish member and contributor Tilapia the other day about how we don't seem to meet new people while traveling anymore. Part of it is the style of travel has changed; domestic flights often take the place of the long-haul bus and train rides where it was easy to meet people, and the newer style accommodation in Southeast Asia often no longer have the common areas where guests would gather for a beer or a snack and exchange notes.

The biggest change, how ...

I'm a 57 year old female used to travel a lot in SE Asia in the passed 35 years. As I enjoy travelling as pair because things often turn out easier and cheaper I am looking for a partner preferably male. So, who I am looking for is someone with similar ideas about travelling, not just for one special trip but generally to travel with and plan trips / destinations together. I usually travel budget but still with some comfort if affordable, often destinations off the beaten track, surface, as lo ...

3 Days in Hong Kong OCT 7 -10

Posted by lvs2travel on 27/9/2016 at 07:32

I'm a 45 year old male that lives in Asia. I'm planning a trip to Hong Kong and figured this would be more fun with a travel companion. I've not been there since I've lived over this way. I'm not sure what areas to hit and don't really plan on shopping until the last day - mostly for Christmas gifts and not for myself. Generally speaking I would prefer traveling with a female as I usually have a co-worker or friend from the states join me. Also, I suck at shopping for gifts so some good advi ...
