Do you love traveling to new destinations? Do you enjoy trying new things? Then welcome to "Wanderlust!" also known as "The Albany Travel, Culture & Adventure Club". We are the largest, most active group of travel lovers in the Capital Region.

Join us as we explore the beauty of the Capital Region and the world around us by attending cultural festivals, lectures & movies, taking day trips, dining at ethnic restaurants... and lots more. Basically we will do anything we can come up with to feed the wanderlust in our souls, open our minds and experience new things!

Membership is free, and this is not a singles-only group. We are a diverse group, open to all ages... singles, couples and friends... including those who are well-traveled and those who aren't well-traveled but want to travel more, or just wish to learn about other cultures. We welcome anyone who dreams of far away places and is looking for folks with a similar mindset!

In addition to traveling and attending cultural events, Wanderlust regularly organizes and participates in fundraising events for those in need both locally, and in other areas of the world. These are some of our best events, as they bring together people with different ethnic and cultural backgrounds to develop a deeper understanding of each other and form real connections by working on a common concern or issue. In the process of working together toward a common goal, we can also benefit from learning about, understanding, and celebrating our unique contributions, differences and similarities.

This group is run by volunteers and we are always looking for new assistant organizers to plan events. If you're interested in organizing an event yourself, or just have an idea for an event, please let us know. Thanks! - Liz
