Have you always wanted to travel abroad and experience the food and culture of the destination but haven't had anyone to travel with? Would you like to meet other adults with similar interests? Join our Meetup..We are a group of 220+ (and growing) travel lovers and/or dreamers who get together on a regular basis to hike, walk and usually end up at a local watering hole to chat and exchange stories, pictures, plans, adventures and dreams...
There is no cost or obligation for those who want to participate in local hikes and other adventures, and no pressure to enroll on international tours. Just a really fun group of active people who share similar interests. All are welcome!
Read the article that the Kennebec Journal and Waterville Sentinel did on us!
