    Sorry I missed the meetup but I really want to meet some adventurous travellers like myself. Finding parking in the city always intimidates me since I'm a Jersey girl so hopefully next event will have ample parking on premises. I would love to revisit machu picchu or do another African safari so please schedule another meetup soon!!

      Hi Beth - We'll be launching another local meetup soon and for the two destinations you mentioned, we have a great safari for the group going in February and we will be launching the Machu Picchu trip for May shortly.

    Hey guys, just joined this group today...not sure why it never happened earlier, but I'm not that active on Meetup.com

    Wondering when the next get together in Philly will be. I see there are a lot of travel trips scheduled, but wouldn't mind hanging out in Philly sometime soon. Bummed I just missed last night's get together, sounds awesome!

    I attended the Meet Up session on September 10th at Fado's in Philadelphia.
    It was the first time I attended this group. Both Kevin and Jeff were dynamic. The information and the opportunity to speak with other travelers was great. I enjoyed hearing Jeff speak of his adventurers. He also gave out ideas for selecting a good camera for an upcoming Safari.
    I also enjoyed speaking to the guests who were very friendly. I look forward to planning the African Safari trip. My Colombian guest also liked the meeting.
    Thanks to the meet up team for a great meet up.
    The location was great. It contributed to the fun in a spirited soccer game of USA fans.

    The location was the worst for this type of meetup. I was mistaken by thinking this was going to be a meeting to develop a plan and obtain guidance for the planning process. It was just a get together and whomever you had the pleasure of standing next to (among all the yelling at the bar), that's who you primarily spoke to during the evening. I was greatly disappointed at the lack of cohesion and absence of leadership.

      I actually had a great time. Typically this venue is perfect for the travel get togethers. There was some excitement in the bar as the US qualified for the World Cup. I was proud to be an American as I witnessed such a patriotic display of joy. It was very nice to meet everyone tonight.

      Kevin, I have to agree with you! I had a fantastic time! I thought the private space made for easy introductions and socializing and the World Cup energy was a bonus! I for one met and had the chance to talk with a majority of the attendees... although I'm sure I don't remember all the names! Thanks so much for being a great host!!

    I'm not denying that if you were there to hang out and drink at the bar that you wouldn't have a great time, but I wasn't looking to hang out. I was there to attend a meeting for traveling and there was not one group discussion conducted by you Kevin. It was too laid back. I wasn't there to watch the World Cup and I'm 100% American too. I'm just saying...that if there is an organized meeting for traveling, then a meeting should be had on traveling. That's all.
