    Hi Folks,
    We are a female couple and we love travelling in our motorhome. We were just saying that when we're on our travels we love meeting people and having a wee chat.
    One thing that makes us feel a bit sad is that other motorhome couples sometimes seem shy to chat to us. I don't think I'm being paranoid. I guess it's because most people travel in male/female pairs and we are a bit different. I've decided that this year I have to be braver and make a real effort to strike up a conversation. I hope people will meet us in the middle and do the same.
    Happy travels folks!
    Mags

    Really hope to meet up with you two and enjoy your company. We're, Ashley and I, just in final process of selecting the MH of our dreams and frustratingly not finding one yet but hey ho soon will be finalised and our first trip will be round sunny Scotland. I am originally from Kilsyth so I do know the climate well lol

    Mags52; don't forget there is a pets group on this forum so you can post photos of your 2 and chat with like minded Funsters.

    Careful about those rallies, you'll get talked to death :D The only people who don't get spoken to are those who stay in their vans :D

    motorhoming/camping is a great leveller. it matters not what your social status or household composition is. we all have to empty the toilet

    I will keep an eye open for you in my travels and will certainly come over and say hello

    I'm a solo traveller and I find that some couples are reluctant to talk to me too. I just think "their loss" and move on to others who are more sociable. (y)

    damn hit post to quick. was going to say we have met all manner of very interesting people on our travels over the years. one couple that sticks in my mind is a couple of men travelling together. nothing odd of course about 2 men these days, it was just one was openly wearing a dress. beard, hairy legs and a dress.
    it seemed everyone else on site was giving them a very wide berth. possibly embarrassed or worried they might catch something. I hate to see people treated like that so struck up a conversation with them. lovely people they were too and were quite used to being ignored or worse.

    My wife talks to everyone, and so does our dog, I hope our paths cross soon :D
    In the motorhome I get relegated to cooking duties :)
