We are the 2nd largest travel group in the area! This social travel group is for people, in the Washington DC metro area, who enjoy international travel, embassy events, cultural dinners, hiking, outdoor recreation, and other fun activities.

This group is for married people, single people, new-in-towners, and people who have been in the DC area for a while and are simply looking for a new group to travel with, go out with, and learn about new countries, cultures, and perspectives with! Membership is FREE, and you only have to be friendly and fun to join!

When you travel to a foreign country, do you:

  1. Stay in a resort for your entire vacation
  2. Hire an English-speaking tour guide with an air-conditioned SUV
  3. Grab your passport, a phrasebook, and start making new friends

If you answered 3, then this is the right group for you!

Our international trips are UNIQUE in that we truly learn about the culture at each of our destinations through cooking classes, listening to folktales, reading books, visiting the embassy in DC and - of course - by having events with locals at every one of our trips. We are true ADVENTURERS, NOT tourists!!

How do we offer such "awesome trips at reasonable prices," as one recent traveler put it? We search the globe far and wide for the best adventure trips at the lowest prices. These usually begin with the big "group tours" that most people hate because they are so impersonal. Instead of just selling you tickets to these big group tours with 50-100 strangers from all over the U.S. like some other Meetup groups do, we arrange a small, private tour just for our group.

Then we customize those barebones trips to add the most popular optional meals and activities that we think most people would want to do (like welcome dinners, cooking classes, and dance lessons), so that you know up front how much your trip will cost! Next, we upgrade itineraries and accommodation to make them more comfortable and convenient for DC travelers. We also contact embassies to arrange private visits with cultural attaches and diplomats, arrange inclusive dinners at DC's top restaurants and even include a book to help you learn more about the culture!

Finally, our real "secret" ingredient is bringing together adventurers just like you in the DC area who love to travel and make lasting friendships that start with amazing overseas adventure. Our trip organizer attends the trip with you every step of the way to ensure all travelers have a wonderful experience, and we even takes professional-quality photos of our travelers so that you can have fantastic memories and pictures to show your friends and family.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
