I am an Australian lady, 65 years of age. I have shared several times with strangers on a cruise and it worked out ok. The last time was in Feb to antarctica with an american lady of my age. I am interested in seeing some more of patagonia and the chilean fjords. The Holland America veendam is sailing between November 2010 and Feb 2011. Prices vary on dates but it can be as cheap as $1000 for 14 days. It sails from either Buenos Aires or Valpariso near santiago in chile, viists cape horrn and the falklands amongst other places. I am a reasonably easy going person. I don't smoke but do like a social drink. We could spend as much time together as both wanted or go our own ways just sharing the cabin. Everyone always enjoys their own space sometimes anyway. I do hope I find someone. By the way I speqk pretty good spanish having spent a while in south america. Really looking forward to hearing from anyone interested.
