Where have you been?

So far, I've mainly been to US destinations, including Hawaii, Florida and the Southwest. Last fall I spent 6 weeks travelling by car and stayed mainly in Southern California and Arizona. I am considering spending at least part of my winters down south, as I love the blue sky and warmth. I've just returned from 7 weeks travelling throughout most of New Zealand on a backpacker bus, and just loved the adventure. You can view my photos of this trip by searching on Google for "Flickr dannymfoster". The scenery is absolutely spectacular, I promise!

Do you have any trips planned in the near future?

I don't have anything specific planned at the moment, as I've just returned from 2 extensive trips, and it's hard to beat being here during the summer.

Where would/will you go next?

I am interested in visiting virtually everywhere in the world, and intend to eventually see as much of it as I can, including Europe, Southeast Asia, Africa, Australia, South America, etc. I have a definite preference for going to places during their warm and dry season, and enjoy experiencing the culture of cities and small towns, as well as the natural landscapes.

Would you be interested in giving a talk, slide show, presentation to members about your experiences?

I'm really not the sort of person who would do that kind of thing. Posting travel photos on a photo sharing website such as Flickr is more my style, as taking photos is an important part of my trips. I very much enjoy meeting others, seeing their photos, and discussing our travel adventures and dreams on a more personal level.

What would you like to get from this group?

I look forward to getting together with others in a social setting to share travel stories and learn about new places. I have recently been travelling on my own, but might like to meet a compatible person with similar interests to do some travelling with. For example, I would be more comfortable travelling to where people don't know a lot of English if someone is accompanying me. I'm a budget minded traveller who likes to get out and meet the locals and learn about their culture firsthand. Staying in fancy hotels and going on cruises is of little interest to me because you don't get to meet or mix with the locals. Also, I like to stay for an extended time and get a good feel for a destination, rather than just get a fleeting glimpse of what a place has to offer. I like a little bit of adventure, but don't tackle anything too strenuous.

Introduction

I've always had a keen interest in travel, but haven't had much of an opportunity until recently. Now is the time for me to get out and meet new people, experience different cultures, and appreciate the diverse beauty of the natural landscapes.

What Danny F is saying about this Meetup Group

There seems to be a missing element to get things happening with this group. It's been many months with no meet-ups, and there's still nothing definite. With 400 or so members, there is significant interest and potential, so I am wondering why this group is stuck in neutral? There are several suggested ideas that are seemingly on hold indefinitely. Are we missing a venue to hold events, a willingness to commit, or is it something else we need to get things moving forward? One would think that this would be a group of go-getters, so this situation has me puzzled, and disappointed. Perhaps we need someone new with the interest and initiative and take this group places!
