There have been many requests for a travel group, and I will plan many outings that involve day or weekend trips, plus local events. We will focus on activities that our significant others may not be as enthusiastic about as we are - shopping comes to mind! There are many places to explore within driving distance, and some of us may want to travel to far away places with great food, wine and culture. We may even invite the men, at times!

We will have some social events for getting to know each other better, but this group will focus on travel. I will research high quality restaurants, accommodations, and activities, even if it is just for a day trip. I'm not a travel agent, so I am not planning these trips for profit, or to be like a tour group. I'm looking for travel companions who also may not have any, so we can explore the destinations together. For that reason, the focus of this group is to stay together on trips. I'm not booking rooms so everyone can go off on their own. There will be free time, and I will also ask for suggestions in advance for each trip we take, so I can plan the schedule and make restaurant reservations. I want to do most of the planning in advance because these are my vacations too, and I would like to enjoy the time we are there. Many of these trips will be planned around events and festivals, so we have a focus for our trip. While we have free time when we're away on longer trips, we will explore the unique shopping areas of that town, and do some sight seeing. This is an active group, so keep in mind that many trips will involve quite a bit of walking. I look forward to the fun times we will have together!
