Announcing a new Meetup for Global Travel Group!What
: Picnic in Colonel Summers Park - Informal long-term travel discussionWhen
: Saturday, September 18,[masked]:00 PMWhere
: Colonel Summers Park
Come share your stories on long-term travel and/or living abroad. Come get ideas on future trips. Come meet others who's travel plans might sync up with yours!! I'll be there talking about the trip I was just on including 2 weeks on a cargo boat, about past trips I've been on including spending a year in new zealand on a working holiday visa.
I'll bring a book I have on Volunteer Vacations and am curious to meet others who have done volunteer work, or taught english, or camped for months on end, or sailed as crew on a yacht or ... ???
Bring something to eat (I'll bring store bought potato salad, due to a severe lack in cooking abilities) and a frisbee or kickball or.... hula hoop? Hula hooping seems to have taken over Portland lately!
I put Colonel Summers Park because its not that big so we'll be easy to find, and its three blocks from my house so if the picnic tables are taken I can bring over a folding table or two and if the weather is miserable we can quickly revert to a plan B - my house, a restaurant close, by etc.
Okay that's all, hope to see you in a few weeks!
