bringing the people together...

It's always fun to google your name and see what comes up. Funnily enough, the first thing I see for my name is my Travellerspoint profile page! I wonder how many of you that's true for as well...
Every now and then we hear from members who have googled their name and discovered they're listed on our Lost Friends list. Here's one example:
Hi You all at Travelerspoint!
Today in the morning I finally got a message from M, the guy I've been searching through your page since AGES!! He had been so bored that he googled himself and found the Reunionlink to your site. We met in China 11 years ago and suddenly the contact was lost. He's from Britain but has been living overseas a lot in these years. I have mainly been in Germany, studied and started working. Without your help we wouldn't have gotten in contact again, so thank You very much for the site.
With the best wishes for all of You,
And here's another email Sam received from a member this week.
I want to thank you for finding a long lost friend for me.
In 1969 I met A B.He had travelled from Turkey to England to do some voluntary work for an organisation I was involved in. In 1975 I met him again but then I lost contact with him believing he had gone to America.
I put a message out on your board but I didn't click the link which would have sent me an email if he responded.
By chance one evening earlier this year I was bored and put my own name into Google Search. I went from page 1 to 2 to 5 to 27 and there I saw the message: A B is looking for J G. The link was to Travellerspoint.
He had responded a year ago.
I immediately emailed him and he replied within hours. We are now in regular contact. I have been to visit him and he will be coming to see me soon.
Thank you very much. I hadn't seen him for 31 years!
Ain't reunion grand?
If you're searching for a lost travel friend, go to the Reunion section of the website and run a search for their name. If you can't find them, pop them on our Lost Friends list.
