Welcome to our COMMUNITY of AVID WORLD TRAVELERS and WORLD CULTURE LOVERS ROUNDTABLE!!
WARNING: Our group is NOT for "the Faint of Heart"! :-)
LIFE is a JOURNEY, NOT a DESTINATION!! It is NOT measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the PEOPLES, PLACES and AWESOME MOMENTS that take our breath away!! Be an AVID WORLD TRAVELER (NOT a TOURIST) and a WORLD CULTURE LOVER with an insightful GLOBAL view of our WORLD!! Let's bloom where we are planted and commit ourselves to make a positive difference to those around us! :-)
As a World Culture Lover and an Avid World Traveler, each one of us holds the "KEY" to the mutual understanding of our global cultural diversities!! Be willing to respect and embrace those cultures that are different from ours with maturity and openness, while being proud of our own. Every culture has both positive and negative components, as there is NO perfect culture in our imperfect world!! Our WORLD is NOT all about "you" or "I", but "ALL of US"!!
We might not be able to change the whole world on our own, but we can certainly improve our interpersonal relationships between ourselves and those who are of different cultural, ethnic and racial backgrounds, through our willingness to be receptive and open-minded in our interactions with one another!! Our lives, in turn, will be enriched by our willingness to learn about cultural diversities WITHOUT pre-judgment, and learn to cherish our differences. Indeed, it does take an incredibly courageous individual to step out of his or her own "COMFORT ZONE" to be a World Culture Lover through our own travel experiences!!
The whole WORLD has been literally brought to our doorstep through various cultural events available in our area!! Let’s explore the WORLD together through our Travel Talk Presentations, World Culture Appreciation Events, as well as Group Travel Adventures!!
OUR GROUP TRIPS: Unlike many Organizers of other Travel Meetup Groups who promote countless group trips for certain travel companies in order to earn FREE trips, I chose NOT to do so as a "matter of principle". Instead, after diligently testing many "selected" travel companies to evaluate the "overall value" of their travel packages with satisfaction, I simply invite you to join me on my journeys! This is my response and solution to our members' frequent requests for us to travel together, while checking off my own "World Traveler's Bucket List"!! You are welcome to join us and let's explore the WORLD together! :-)

My passionate and genuine interest in exploring different cultures through my own travel adventures and personal interactions with others, globally and domestically, continues to be the driving force of my deep commitment for building a “Cultural Bridge” by bringing people of ALL races, cultures and nationalities together through various events.
If you wish to meaningfully enrich your own life, I sincerely encourage you to join us to be a "true contributor" by challenging yourself to step out of your "comfort zone", and ultimately leave your incredible legacy to our WORLD as a "Positive Game Changer"!
Will you? If yes, are you ready? See you soon!! :-)
"Life....is 10% of "what happens to us" and 90% of "how we react to it"!! We live in the "reality" of "today" resulted from the "decisions" we made "yesterday". So safeguard our "attitude" with extreme care!! Let's bloom where we are planted and spread positive energy to those around us." :-)
