A widower has contacted me to say that he is now visiting Tenerife alone after many years visiting as a couple with his late wife. He says that “between November and April we spent most of our time strolling between La Caleta and Los Cristianos or hiring a car and going `inland` or visiting other areas of the island”. After giving Tenerife a break after his wife died, he says he is now a “lone traveller”, but misses group company. He ends by asking “could you suggest any social groups in the area who welcome short term retired, active winter visitors?”
This reader explicitly said that his enquiry could be used “as the basis for any discussion forum or article” so I’m posting to ask for suggestions on his behalf, as well as for anyone else who might find themselves in a similar position. If you know of anything, please could you add it as a comment in the box below? It would be much appreciated!
