Can we make a travel group from Kolkata?

Hi friends..
I am from kolkata, love travelling,photograpying, but as i found no good companion, i make plans but they never see sunlight..[cry]
Sometimes my mother of middle age wants to go out with me... but as me, my mother and my little son 2yrs of age are very odd group to travel (as everyone says its too risky to travel even nearby weekend destinations when no male partner is there with us).
i dont know if i can manage to travel any places ever [cry] .
i dont find package tour travel much good.. as they dont travel they just hop around...

at last if i cannot find a group of like minded people to travel with, i have to take help from package tours.

friends any one of you.. naturally from kolkata... if feel the same as mine... we can be a group... we will get to know each other and then travel together... it will be safe and sure travel...

Please come to the next Kolkata Meet-Up, where you will meet many like-minded travellers from this city.
It is a good idea to have a travel group. Many single travellers will benefit from this.

Same thing happens with me. I love traveling and my hobby is photography. I am planning for Ladakh trip since last year, but not found any like minded traveler to form a group. I am eagerly looking forward to the meet up.

Please consider a saying while making a group: Your best company is yourself. You know, it is very tough to find like-minded people. :D

The Kolkatans are planning a meetup away from Kolkata hence the referenced discussion is going on! :D

Hi Aheli, I'm also an avid traveller from Calcutta. I've been travelling at least twice every year. I am also interested in a group from Calcutta.

Making a Travel group is easy ... but sustaining it on a longer term is tough.

I think its easier to rope in like-minded friends to form a core group than bank on complete strangers. And please don't listen to people who deters you and your family from travelling (just because you all are females) ... come on, if something is to go wrong it can go wrong even at your home. So no point thinking about what can happen. Obviously if you are not doing anything out of the normal then I dont think there is need for you to worry. The world has moved on and women travellers are equal in number to their male counterparts if not more.
