Our first Portland Travel Meetup Group will be Sunday, July 29, at 7 P.M. Loie from our group has suggested we meet at O'Connors Pub in Multnomah Village (7850 SW Capitol Hwy., Portland 97219). O'Connors will be having live music that evening inside so they've promised us a place outside on the left end of the deck. A full menu plus beverages will be available. (Please bring cash, restaurants are not always willing to split the bill and usually want an 18% gratuity for groups).
Some of you already have a travel idea in mind. Maybe you've been there before, had a great time and want to go back with a group of new travel buddies. Bring that idea and propose it to the group and let's see who develops an interest (bring info sheets if you want). We already have at least one travel pro in the group that we'll ask for advice on making arrangements for groups. We'll also add your idea to our schedule, and advertise it on our network so everyone can have a chance to see what trips are available and when.
Let's not sit around bored, let's plan something that will create great adventures, generate new friendships, and make some lasting memories. Join the group now, RSVP for the first meeting, propose a travel destination, bring hand-outs if you like, and make this group something we'll all enjoy.
For starters: who's interested in planning a trip to Victoria, B.C., Seattle, Leavenworth, WA, San Francisco, Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, South America, Europe, Asia, Austrailia, Scandinavia, or wherever you'd like to lead a group? (You can reach me at [masked].)
