Have you lived in more than one country, traveled to many countries, worked in a multicultural setting, or have a lot of friends from different backgrounds? Then this group is for you!

We're not your typical "armchair travelers"... we've truly "been there, done that!" While we enjoy living here, we don't believe that Minneapolis / St. Paul (MSP), USA is the center of the known universe.

While there are many great local groups for expats and specific languages or cultures, we want to bring everyone together for a truly global experience!

We encourage all group members with a great idea to lead an event or series of events. (See guidelines on the "Pages" link above.) While the group doesn't have a strict "No Show" policy, we do support an Event Host’s right to consider past attendance history for events with limited space.

Wow! We have members who've lived in, not just traveled to, 160 countries: Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, Argentina, Armenia, Aruba, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belarus, Belgium, Belize, Benin, Bermuda, Bhutan, Bolivia, Bosnia, Botswana, Brazil, British West Indies, Bulgaria, Burma, Burundi, Cabo Verde, Cambodia, Cameroon, Canada, Cayman Islands, Central African Republic, Chile, China, Colombia, Congo, Cook Islands, Costa Rica, Côte d'Ivoire, Croatia, Cuba, Curaçao, Czech Republic, Denmark, Djibouti, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Eritrea, Estonia, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Guam, Guatemala, Guinea, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Ivory Coast, Jamaica, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kosovo, Kuwait, Laos, Latvia, Lebanon, Lesotho, Liberia, Macau, Malawi, Malaysia, Mali, Malta, Mauritius, Mexico, Micronesia, Mongolia, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Niger, Nigeria, Norway, North Korea, Oman, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Palestine, Pakistan, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Rwanda, Saint Lucia, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Serbia, Seychelles, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Somalia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Swaziland, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Taiwan, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Thailand, Togo, Trinidad & Tobago, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay, Uzbekistan, Venezuela, Vietnam, Virgin Islands, Yugoslavia, Zaire, Zambia, and Zimbabwe… what an incredible group!!!
