August Travel Meetup

Come join us on Aug 20 at Porter Square for our monthly meetup. Get travel ideas from fellow travelers, and share your own travel stories!

Our concept is simple: meet other travelers or expats, talk about where you've been and where they've been, and get inspired for your next trip. Everyone with an open mind and sense of adventure is welcome, whether you're a travel novice or an experienced travel junkie.

This month we'll meet at Tavern in the Square @ Porter Sq. This is a very accessible location; There is parking closeby, and it's literally a 1 min walk from the T (red-line) - just exit the T station and walk down Mass Ave, away from the big Porter Sq parking lot. There are lots of convenient bus connections too. We'll be in the front area, to the right of the bar.

Each month, we generally switch back and forth between Porter Sq and White Horse Tavern in Allston. We're also considering future options in other neighborhoods - suggestions are welcome!

Please note: Active solicitation of members at our meetups by commercial organizations is contrary to the spirit of the group. Please stay away if you are a travel company just looking to promote your business! Thank you!

    Thanks everyone, for coming out! Seemed like this month's group was full of especially knowledgeable travelers. I now know what to do if I ever find myself stranded in Kyrgyzstan. And I'll try to avoid 2-step snakes while mountaineering in Indonesia!

      So glad I could help! But hope u r never stranded in Kyrgyzstan! !! Just don't go the US embassy, because they can't interfere with a "sovereign nation!"
