Travellers Seeking Travellers

Post by jonperry64 » Fri Feb 19, 2016 3:27 pm

I see that the Horizons Unlimited website has a section on the Forum called "Travellers Seeking Travellers". This strikes me as a really good idea. Only thing is that most of the trips people mention there seem to be long trips to far off places like China and South America. Does anyone think it would be useful to have a similar "Category" on the ABR forum - perhaps including more modest trips, e.g., for a week or so to places within Europe?

the nature of the european travelers is being strapped for time and a lot seem to be doing marathons with tight schedule.

but there are hotspots in europe as selvio etc, which a lot seem to be going through. imho it might work of listing weekly travelers agendas for random meets. eg if me and other forum member is passing Prague on second tuesday of June, I would love to meet up and share stories over lunch.

Well anyone who wants to use this thread for this purpose feel free! I for one wouldn't mind joining others for a trip of a week to 10 days at some point this year. France, Spain, Portugal, UK or wherever, although financial and time constraints do apply! Cheers.

A grand idea sir. The ABR sticker works well too, we saw one on a BMW in Portugal last year parked up outside a hotel so posted on here and subsequently met sleepy and his lovely wife for a beer. B)

Well I'll kick it off. I'm off to South East Europe on May 6th returning early June if anyone is in the area and fancies meeting up for a beer or a few days riding together. Going via Germany, Austria, Slovenia Croatia etc and returning via Bulgaria but no firm plans as to dates and places on route just a general direction there and back.

A great idea as I would be very interested as none of my mates ride anymore and I am usually billy no mates when I go out on my bike. Just packed one of my businesses in so will have plenty of time from now on.

I think its a cracking idea. It's a good idea to meet other people on this forum as well.
Well I'll add something else. I'm doing a trip for 7 or 8 days in August (dates tbc). I would like to do the Alps, going down through Germany stopping for a couple of nights in Andermatt doing most of the good passes then on to the Stelvio. Coming home through Austria, Germany etc. I will be doing it solo anyway if nobody wants to join. All road riding probably staying in b&b's however I could probably be persuaded to camp if other people were interested.
Let me know.
Cheers
