Have you ever kept in contact with people you have met on holiday

Not personally but my brother and his wife were on their honeymoon and they met another couple who were on their honeymoon and have kept in touch - about 17 years now and now they are looking for ways not to keep in touch because they are not the nicest people. :unsure:

Yes I have. We met a family in St Ives, Cornwall in 1995. We went back there for the next 4 yes, then went to dawlish in Devon. Then in 2000 we all decided to go to wdw for the first time for all of us. They've stayed at our house a few times, flew down for denise's surprise 50th and we went to Scotland last aug for a week at theirs and had a great time

We have certainly kept in touch with two families who we met on DCL cruises.
One of them [in case you hadn`t guessed! :lol:] was catrancher and his DW with whom we have done two cruises.
The other family is based in LA and we have now done 3 cruises with them. They have also stayed at our house here in the UK and are now planning to visit us again in August. :banana:
We have booked a joint cruise with our friends for next year too.

Yep we certainly have and we have met lots of folks from here that we stay in contact with.

I've not really met people on holiday, I guess if you're on a cruise it's a little different as you see the same person more than once!

I consider the members here as "keeping in touch" with people I've "met." Each member here is part of my life, and I treasure the contact I share with them through this website.

I find myself thinking of any number of members on my commutes to work. "I wonder what _______ would think of this? Or Would say about this?" Those sorts of thoughts.

I feel that I have a base of friendships here that enriches my life and that I would not have without this site, and respectively Disney.

So, although that's not quite what you meant, it is a version of the theme, eh?

I have "old friends" here and make new friends as new members join. :yes:

That I've not "met" in person, does not mean that I don't treasure the interaction just as much as if I had. :yes:

I agree with TINK I feel I have many friends on secrets even though I have not met them:yes:
