Looking for travel mates to Europe next year.

Postby lear.kelly » Mon, 11 Jun 2007 6:37 pm

hi, i'm a singel woman who looking for travel mates to go europe next year. it can be any country but i wish is spain (only one country at a time, unless i have enough money and leave, i have 21 day annual leave). i like to travel free-and-easy, not backpack.

not that i'm rich, i like shopping, buy quality goods. see nature, architect and art. i rather spend on post cards, shopping instead of good food, 5-stars hotel and night club. things like adventure and night club, is out of my way.

If possible, i'd like to travel with more than one people, male or felmale. gays are welcome too.

yeah, next year is still far away, but i think we should meet up and know each other is equally important.

my email is: lear.kelly@hotmail.com

Hello, which part of next year? I'm very interested in touring Europe (never been there). I'm not into adventure, backpacking either, but apart from shopping, I would love to try some good food there =p Am I still "qualified" to go on this trip?

Hola Lear Kelly,

Perhaps you might like to sign up onto http://www.insideespana.com

Just released by the NTO of Spain with all the inside information about Spain and tips what to do and see while in Spain. If not, you can always drop by our office in Liat Towers to take a look at the mountains of brochures we have to offer. (I am not kidding, we literally have mountains of brochures)

Hi lear,

We are not a company. We work for the Spanish Government - on the Tourism end, hence the Spanish Tourism Board. No agencies involved. We are just promoting the country itself. We have plenty of brochures and so we ar emore than happy to provide any information we can about Spain.

Our office is not opened on weekends unfortunately, only on weekdays from 9 to 5. You can come during lunch as we are in the office at all times. You can give us a call before you drop by if you prefer at 6737 3008 or drop an email at singapore@tourspain.es

If you want to receive personalized information, you can sign on to our enewsletter at http://www.insideespana.com

I would like to tour Europe if I can find the time. Have yet to explore the WHOLE of Spain, let alone Europe. ;)

Cheers!

hi pnxjamie,

me too like to take pictures and hate to hear people say 'you been to but didn't get to see?'. that's why i prefer to tour only one country at time.

i'm still waiting for others to reply whether they have msn and what is the convenience time to msn. will update you. see ya.

Hi hi, my bf and I are planning for a trip to Europe (Italy to ski & Barcelona) next year as well. I have made some initial checking of flights, places to go, hotels, etc.

Maybe we can plan some parts of the vacation together or even fly to Barcelona together? SQ have a direct flight to Barcelona and always have a "4 to go deal" ($1200 excluding tax). If there are 4 of us, we might be able to work something out?

We are looking to go on Feb 1/2 and returning on Feb 16, so that we can maximise the public holiday (Chinese New Year) in between.

Your thoughts?

hi Lear,

Unfortunately, we can't help with the arrangements of the hotel. That would be the job of an agency and we only do so for journalists. Sorry about that but we can recommend hotels. We have a whole list of them.

Our address is Liat Towers, we are on the 9th floor.

I have msn> littlecherub_inblack@hotmail.com

Hi All,
I will be going to London next year and every year for their winter sale.
I lived there for under a decade and just returned to Singapore 3 weeks ago.
I am trying to persuade some girls in this forum I met to go with me.
It doesn't have to be expensive as I am very familiar with the city. I know the good places to go and cheap places to eat (not fast-food).
The main aim for the trip is to satisfy my shopping (yes I know where to go to get best bargain!).
If anyone is interested for a meet up, please do PM me.

Regards,
Jacqueline
