Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Happy Valentines Day to everyone!!

I would like to thank all of you who have been faithfully following this Adventure, and also welcome many new readers to the Newsletters. Amazingly, the Oprah segment on Senior Bachelor continues to play around the world, recently in many countries in Southeast Asia.

A frequent question e-mailed to me is: Will your Search for a life partner continue?? The short answer is....yes. The longer answer is.....yes, but probably not in the same fashion as I had originally planned, I'm sad to say.

For the benefit of new readers, the Senior Bachelor endeavor was launched on The Oprah Winfrey Show and People Magazine in 2005. This does not mean that either Oprah or People magazine was involved in any way business-wise, rather to let viewers and readers know of my quest. For that I am deeply thankful to both Oprah and to People Magazine.

To my utter astonishment, more than 6,000,000 (6 million) unique viewers have visited the Senior Bachelor website. During 2005, some 2,200 very courageous women had the fortitude to send in a video and a biography. I know how hard that must have been, and I sincerely thank each and every one who did so. I am so gratified that so many found this experience to be a major life change in their lives and we have all shared in many happy stories.

From the 2,200 entries, there were 22 Fabulous Finalists, all of whom visited Manhattan Beach for 4 days in October of 2005. I assure you it was mighty difficult to choose 5 women from this group. Mind you it was difficult to choose 5 women from the 2,200 who had sent in their information!!

I remain deeply grateful to each and every person who has been involved in any way in this quest.

The Senior Bachelor Around The World Journey started in November of 2005. Five courageous and wonderful women decided they would take a chance and travel with me for up to one month as I circled the globe.

Vicki, from Atlanta, took the first plunge (which was perfect as Vicki is a champion 10 meter diver and had also appeared on another Oprah show in 2005). We toured Brazil and Argentina for almost one month, highlighted by our stay at the Ariau Towers in the heart of the Amazon jungle. This was the same place where Survivor Amazon was filmed, and we had the exact same guides as we spent days in the Amazon jungle.Vicki was great. (If you would like to see photos of the Amazon Jungle trek click here.)

In January, Gael, who lives on Cape Cod, visited and we toured Chile, highlighted by our time in the Atacama Desert. Gael was also super! Click here for photos of Gael and Chile.

Two weeks into our time together, I found out that I had prostate cancer.

Umberto, my right hand man, expert linguist, guide, driver, and great traveler, was along on the Around The World Journey videotaping everything. Umberto went back to Italy, Gael to Cape Cod, and me to Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, where I had the damn cancer cut out.

In one of the next Newsletters I will let all of the readers know if the Journey will continue. Again, my sincere thanks for being along on this journey, with all of its twists and turns.


Past Newsletter readers know that I am moving to Italy as of March 1. Not permanently, but at least until November of this year. I will be conducting two fabulous tours in Italy, one starting March 23, the other October 5. The two tours have very few places left. If you are interested, please e-mail me immediately.

In between the two tours, from May to September, I will be living in Lerici, right below the Cinque Terre, and I will be conducting day tours in this wonderful area. I have rented a house directly on the Mediterranean Sea, which is available for rent, or to stay, while I lead tours. Please click here to read further information.

Also, there is a FABULOUS 10 day "Roman Empire" cruise embarking from Rome on September 25, with the best itinerary I have ever seen. Pl ease click here to read the details.

Bye for now, Richard Roe
