Do men travel to Europe in groups? Are they afraid to ask for directions?

Jump to last reply

I am struck by how often I see on this message posts that begin:

"Three ladies traveling to..."

"Four grandmothers but young at heart headed for ...."

"We are five women in their early 60s looking to explore..."

etc etc, but NEVER have I seen a post that began:

"We are 3 guys in the early 60s planning a trip to..."

"We are four grandfathers, interested in beer, some museum going and willing to rent a car..."

"We'll be three men spending 3 nights in London before ..."

What accounts for this? Anyone know?

I know gay couples who travel, and some may travel in small groups. Do they post on different message boards?

Does anyone personally know any men over 50 who have decided to go off for a European adventure without women in tow?
