Or a cup of tea, even! (Just added as an afterthought as it's morning now!)
Hi all you couples out there ... as a woman travelling on her own (with another woman travelling on her own but basically on my own) it would be nice to meet up with friends from here.

Yes, just a bit shunned. Never mind. It's lonely sometimes travelling on your own.

Hmmmm, not sure what to say to help, I did sense your post was out of your usual character. I cant even imagine what it feels like traveling on ones own, so not able to be of much assistance. Keep venting here, I'm sure some members will be able to offer more valuable advice as I can.

Take care.

If you are near Nantwich, you are more than welcome to pop over and we'll take you to our excellent local. Can also arrange a stopover for a night or two. Some good walks around here too.

Do you travel with a pet? they make all the difference, always agree with everything you say,even complete gibberish,they ask for nothing,and they're always there when you need a buddy. I'd be lost without my dog for company.

Yo Carol, I certainly hope you are lifted a bit. I had nine hours teaching today, finished at 21.00 hours tonight, with another six tomorrow and so on.

While I totally understand we can all find ourselves in a rut at times (we are all human) I hope you enjoy the lovely words from the lovely Dolores.

Take care.

It's only a blip Carol. All us loners go through it now and again. Put some music on
and pour yourself a good drink.

Your not really on your own, you've got great vibes from all your mates on here.

Tomorrow you'll be in a better place than me. I'll still be in cold wet & windy Whitworth, because I don't have your bottle.

You should be very proud of what your doing. xx

Treat yourself to a bottle of red later, it will make things all betterer. x

Thanks. Yes, it was a blip brought on by a particular incident which I shouldn't have let get to me! That and this incessant wind! Of the weatherly kind before anyone chirps up!

So it’s the doing it rather than the was doing which would be goggled

What your experiencing carol is really what is to be expected after
enduring the windy conditions at La Linea. The east wind (the Levanter)
is akin in it's affects to the German Foehn.in that it does nothing to
lift the spirits, and quite honestly the west wind is only marginally
to be preferred. You should have sat it out then got a job in Gib pulling pints
you'd be surprised how many Brit lives have been changed doing just that!
Portugal can only be better wind wise.
Normally I'd be in GiB Xmas time but this year I've stayed northeast based on local/family advice but my time is yet to come!

Hi Robina, yes I've been to Mikki's - heading that way though my travel buddy is worried about the poisoned dogs. Anyone been caught? Btw, I'm small, in a small van!:wave:

I am told that a local man has been arrested. There has been no recurrence. One of the dogs was in the van next to ours. They arrived with three small dogs and within two days found and adopted a little stray so they had four. The very next day one of the original three died overnight and they left:-( Everyone was very shocked and upset - especially Mikki who has dogs herself. The Police took it very seriously and were all over the place for several hours searching the lanes around. The second dog was with another van and fell sick at the same time and, although they got it to the vet, it died a day later. It is all very sad but it was dealt with very swiftly.

Maybe bump into you at some point - we have a WC sticker in the windscreen. Staying here at least four more days.

Hopefully no re-occurrence from last night, if so, just think of the FE Edinburgh idiot with another nine class contact hours tomorrow (Thursday)

Pulling pints on the Gib sounds more appealing!!

Hope all is well for you this evening.

Hi Carol I hope you feeling a bit better today and the wind has dropped.
Perhaps we will see you soon if you come over towards Portugal and we can swap stories, you may however have to endure Paul as it would appear they have let him out on parole.😆
Let us know if you're coming this way and we can arrange something.

Hi Carol. As another solo traveller I know that normally everthkng is sorted but now and again something inconsequential can get to you. In Spain but not wilding as I am an assistant steward on a rally. Even here you are still alone and need an understanding ear sometimes. All the best to you and everyo e I met at the Green Frog. Meg

Hi Paul and Lee, yes would be great to meet up. Paul, you've got my mob number I think. I'll probably be in Portugal tomorrow or the day after. Good job no glasses of wine last night. Parked up in Conil de la Frontera and police moved us on 12 30 at night, literally one minute down the road! Glad to report feeling cheerier now. I think Byronic must be right and that wind was messing with my head! So glad to be away from it! Now in Jerez de la Frontera. Thanks again for all your chivvying posts! 🍷🍷🍷
