TRAVEL stems from a passion, and a curiosity about the next town over, the world and its many cultures. This group was formed out of that passion as well as a keen interest in sharing it with others.

Whether you want to explore your backyard or the world, This Group's for You!

Do you love to travel or talk travel?

Whether you’re just curious, a travel wannabe or a globetrotter you can enjoy the energy and information our members offer. This is a fun and engaging group of travel enthusiasts with a world of experience. Collectively we’ve lived in or visited half the globe.

Need to learn the basics?

Want help finding a travel buddy?

We share travel tips, stories, industry trends, activities, day trips, weekend adventures, US & International trips, and other travel-related interests in a friendly and informal environment.

You’re in the right place!

You'll get a plethora of travel knowledge through our meetings, events, presentations, dinners, happy hours, guest speakers, seasoned travelers and trips. More trips to be announced.

Need info about a certain region or culture?

With this group you’ll also find Cultural Activities. Through travel you gain exposure to other cultures (intentionally or through osmosis.) You might interact with similar or drastically different cultures on your journeys but it’s always a fascinating experience and certainly an education. Share your travel and cultural experiences and expertise with others while also learning from them.

Ask questions, get answers. We’re here to help!

Whatever your location you can ask questions, offer suggestions and get travel information through the Discussion Board. If you’re visiting Southern CA, come to a meeting or event.

You can Live Anywhere in the world & Benefit from this group.

Join us on a trip. You can leave with us or MEET US at the destination (ex. New Orleans, South Pacific, Boston, Chicago, Australia, Napa, Grand Canyon, Brazil, Ireland, Austria, Germany, Costa Rica, Brazil, the Mediterranean, South Africa, Cuba...)

I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event or trip!

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.
