Silver Travel Forum

Silver Travel Forum

 

Over a number of years Solent Richard has willingly supported the Silver Travel Advisor on both their Home and Forum pages.

Though not a dedicated cruise forum, the Silver Travel forum does have a cruise related section and over the years Solent Richard has contributed many high quality and well received reviews and reports as well as assisting in hosting ship visits by members.

However Solent Richard has now parted company with the organisation following a series of requests that he somewhat limit his contributions to the forum stating that…

” some members have much humbler travel experiences, and I don’t want them to feel inadequate.  We want the Forum to be a place where everyone feels comfortable to share their opinions and experiences. You are very fortunate to have such luxurious trips, but I really don’t feel that our Forum is the place for promoting these so expansively”.

Solent Richard has of course noted that the forum as a whole has been very limited in its travel coverage and generally relies on non travel banter threads, aka ‘What are you up to today’ and ‘What are you reading’ as a means of life support.

So alas the days of Solent Richard displaying the now redundant STA Bag in many amazing world wide places has come to an end…

That was at Nava Kailash or 108 Shiv Mandirs, one of the most amazing temples at Kalna on the River Ganges.

A full review of this amazing journey can be read at…

Update 31 May 2019

It’s certainly a funny old world. Just on One Month since Solent Richard parted company with the STA Forum an activity screenshot just about says it all…

The one ‘current’ comment by the ‘Joker’ in the ‘Travel Other’ section has nothing really to do with travel. Google the first line and it will be revealed it is a 6 year old regurgitation of a comic strip. Life must be really exciting in the outbacks of Albox.

Meanwhile it  appears that the major activity on the site is now Indian and Asian spammers promoting dubious travel services while genuine travel questions by new joiners ( AlaxStack) go unanswered.

Solent Richard is pleased to announce that any readers who may share his views on the Silver Travel Advisor Forum will be delighted to learn of a far superior over-50s ‘Silver’ Forum with multiple subjects and a high rate of contributions. Here is the link to Silver Surfers Community…

  1. Yes, I’m pleased to be a member though have to remind myself to explore on a monthly basis. A lot of solid contributors with varied experience of all types of travel including cruising. Some of them have retired but now work as Travel Advisors and always on an assignment .
