ST LUCIA
Post: #1
HI ALL
LAST YEAR I WENT ON THE CANADIAN TRIP AND MET A LOVELY LADY ABOUT MY OWN AGE, IN THEIR 60'S WHO SEEMED TO BE A BIT ON HER OWN. I ASKED IF I COULD
SIT NEXT TO HER ON THE COACH AND WE REALLY HIT
IT OFF. IT WOULD BE GREAT IF THIS HAPPENED AGAIN
AS I AM NOT MUCH GOOD ON MY OWN, I HATE THE IDEA
OF GETTING LOST, BUT THERE AGAIN I DONT LIKE A LOT
OF PEOPLE AROUND AS I AM QUITE SHY. IT WORKED
REALLY WELL AND WE SPENT THE REST OF THE HOLIDAY
GOING ROUND TOGETHER AS WE HAD THE SAME INTERESTS.
I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW IF ANYONE IS FEELING THE SAME
AND WOULD LIKE TO KNOW SOMEONE BEFORE GOING TO
FIND OUT THEIR INTERESTS AND WHAT THEY DONT LIKE WHICH IS JUST AS IMPORTANT.
THANKS SUE SOUTHAMPTON

Hello Sue how are you?
I am glad I read your message I feel we have a lot in common.
I am also in y 60Confused and for sometime I have been wanting to book my first J Y holiday but haven't found the courage with doing so.
Have you booked your holiday?
Look forward to your reply.
Thank you
Angel from Norfolk.

Hi Sue

I have been on 7 Just You holidays and have enjoyed meeting people of all ages and experiences. I personally think that if you just 'stick' with one person then you are missing out on a lot. It is nice to try and mix with everyone. Of course, this is my personal opinion and I do appreciate that everyone thinks differently.

Regards

Jaya

I have to agree with Jaya. I know from experience that, however shy you are, you can find people to talk to on a JY holiday and you don't need to be "joined at the hip" to enjoy the holiday. If you are trying to get to know someone before you go away you should remember that the person you think you are "meeting" over the internet may be completely different if and when you see them face to face. The holiday in St Lucia seems, from the brochure, to be a beach holiday - what happens if the person you "meet" before you go away turns out to be not what you were expecting (and vice versa)?

DEAR ANGEL
ITS A NEW HOLIDAY FOR NEXT YEAR SO DONT KNOW WHAT
OTHERS THINK BUT IT SOUNDS REALLY GOOD. PLENTY OF
INTERESTING THINGS TO DO. I REALLY WANT TO SEE THE
WHALES AMONST OTHER THINGS. ITS GREAT GOING WHEN
YOU KNOW SOMEONE AS ITS GOOD WALKING AROUND TOGETHER. I MET SOMEONE I REALLY GOT ON WITH WHEN
I WENT ON THE CANADIAN TRIP LAST YEAR AND WE SPENT
A LOT OF TIME JUST THE TWO OF US LOOKING AT DIFFERENT
PLACES. OF COURSE WE WENT WITH OTHERS BUT ITS GREAT
HAVING THAT SPECIAL FRIENDSHIP. I AM STAYING AT THE
BEACH HOTEL NOT THE ONE INLAND AS I LOVE SEEING THE
SEA FROM THE WINDOWS. AT THE MOMENT THERE ARE ONLY
2 PEOPLE BOOKED ON IT WITH A MAXIMUM OF 20 SO SHOULD
BE GOOD. IF YOU WANT TO EXCHANGE EMAIL ADDRESSES SO
WE CAN TALK MORE JUST ASK THE EDITOR AND THEY WILL
GIVE YOU MY ADDRESS AND WE CAN CHAT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED. I HOPE YOU ARE AS IT WOULD BE GOOD AS ITS
YOUR 1ST TRIP AND MY THIRD. I AM NOT A BEACH PERSON
BUT I LIKE WALKING ALONG IT AND SEEING THE SEA AND BOATS. LOOK FORWARD TO EXCHANGING EMAIL ADDRESSES.
BYE FOR NOW SUE SOUTHAMPTON

I DO JOIN IN WITH OTHERS BUT I ALSO LIKE THE CLOSE
FRIENDSHIP WITH ONE PERSON, IT WORKS REALLY WELL
WHEN YOU WANT TO GO AND SEE SOMETHING QUIETLY
FOR A REST FROM THE EXCURSIONS.

I HAVE PUT THAT I AM NOT A BEACH PERSON BUT I LOVE
WALKING ALONG IT AND WATCHING THE SEA AND SOMETIMES
SWIMMING. I THINK ITS GOOD TO HAVE BOTH TIMES WITH ALL
AND OTHER TIMES WHEN YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING
DIFFERENT JUST TO HAVE ONE PERSON, AS I DID IN CANADA
TO GO AROUND WITH. I HAVE SAID TO THE PERSON INTERESTED IN TALKING TO ME THAT I WOULD GIVE MY
EMAIL ADDRESS SO WE CAN FIND OUT MORE ABOUT EACH
OTHER, SO THAT IT SHOULD NOT BE A PROBLEM. IT DOES
NOT MATTER IF IT DOES NOT WORK AS THERE ARE ALWAYS
OTHERS TO GO AROUND WITH. IN FACT THERE ARE ONLY
2 BOOKED SO FAR ANYWAY WITH A MAX/ OF 20 SO WE SHOULD ALL MIX ANYWAY.
