Would you like to present on a place you've been? If so, where?

Yes! I'd love to present about Laos, Sri Lanka, India, Burma, Cuba, Morocco, Borneo, Japan....

Which countries or places are you interested in exchanging information about?

I'd love to hear from people who have been to Namibia, Tibet, Papua New Guinea, Sumatra, Madagascar, Turkey, Panama, Guatemala, Iceland, Ethiopia, Mongolia, and just about anywhere I haven't been!

What would you like to get out of this Meetup group?

I love the energy I receive from a group of energetic travelbugs! I would like to learn about countries in the world I haven't been to yet, exchange travel ideas and tips with people who have varied experiences, and share my own experiences too.

Please list all of the places you've been (to make it easy to exchange information with other members).

Sri Lanka India Nepal Laos Thailand Cambodia Indonesia Singapore Burma Vietnam Hong Kong South Korea Japan Australia New Zealand Fiji Costa Rica Belize Guatemala Mexico Philippines Morocco Portugal Spain Gibraltar England Scotland Hawaii Bahamas Caymans Mayalsia Indonesia Andaman Islands Dominican Republic USA Brunei Cuba


Travel is one of my biggest passions, along with photography. I have traveled in over 30 countries & lived in both Japan and Australia. I miss the energy I received from the Chicago Travel Meetup, so I thought I'd start a Travel Meetup in Edmonton!
