Founded by Tara Russell of Three Month Visa Coaching and Consulting and run in partnership with Laurie Koski of Pink Shoe Tours, this is a great Meetup for seasoned globetrotters and armchair travelers alike! Our Travel Book Club discussions feature books to inspire you if you are currently dreaming of "hitting the road" as well as provide necessary resources for planning and realizing that trip of a lifetime. Our focus is building a community of travel enthusiasts from around the Bay Area so we can all share resources, contacts, ideas and inspiration in support of each other's travel dreams.

Are you planning to hit the road soon and looking for been-there-done-that savvy and tips from fellow wanderers? Are you just back from an amazing journey and looking to share your stories with like-minded travel junkies? If so, this is the place for you!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
