I want to travel overseas somewhere but don't have any friends that either can afford to go, get the time off from job/SO/kids, or want to be friends with me 😟

I travel all the time by myself and love it. Don't need to be on anyone else's schedule, can come and go when I want - it's fantastic. Highly recommend.

Same. I go places by myself. Just pick somewhere relatively safe.

I would want to use miles and points vs. Contiki group travel plus I feel like I'm too old for some of the group travel places since I'm in 30s.

Go by yourself and see what happens. You'll be more likely to do something you wouldn't otherwise. Be comfortable in your own shoes

I'm the married guy who can't go. Plenty of friends who solo travel and love it. Far off the beaten path...

Hostels 👫

Just go....

Same problem here.

EY OP, I'm in the same age bracket and mostly do solo trips (which are very enjoyable btw). Open to pairing up as travel buddies.

Maybe intrepid? They have comfort/luxury trips that attract a slightly older crowd. You could always do half the trip solo (use points, etc) and then tack on a 3-4 day intrepid trip to mix it up and meet some new people. Or maybe do the intrepid part first.

How are the L3Harris benefits? I read something about unlimited PTO, but in reality it’s like 4 weeks. How’s the 401k match? Is it common to have a 9/80 schedule? I was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn...hence all the questions. :-)
