What we're about

There are 1001+ things to see/do/experience in the DC area ... Grab your camera - let's go explore!

Many thanks to John MC for starting this group - awesome idea and right were I am with exploring what DC has to offer. There is SO much to do in this area from the pure basic stuff (food, movies, parks), to national events and exhibits (government buildings, art galleries and events, Smithsonian, other museums, festivals, etc), to more eclectic things (wine/beer/chocolate festivals, drag queen & burlesque shows, off-the-wall events).

If I'm interested in something, I'll post events. If you like the idea of this group and don't see something you want to do, suggest it or become an event host.

I will not charge dues for this group but encourage donations once in a while (every little bit helps!). If you RSVP for something and something else comes up, please remember to un-RSVP so your spot can be filled by someone else. I get it - we are all busy ... but I urge you to take a little time out of your schedule to have some fun too :-)

Travel to Cuba is STILL LEGAL and this trip will follow all the rules set by the U.S. Treasury’s OFAC! Cuba is frozen in time with classic American cars whizzing by crumbling Spanish colonial architecture which will make you feel like you’re stepping back into the 1950s. Our group will be mostly solo (female) travelers and we won’t be staying in the massive, soulless chain hotels, but rather in guesthouses/B&Bs to get a small taste of the “real Cuba”. We’ll do all the things on your bucket list like riding around in a classic convertible car, learn the art of Cuban cigar rolling; but we’ll also be interacting with the locals during our morning walk around a local Havana neighborhood as well as a typical Cuban night out!

INCLUDED :
- 8 nights accommodation in casa particulares (double occupancy)
- Private Cuban guide throughout
- Private, air-conditioned transportation
- Activities as noted on the itinerary
- All breakfasts, 6 lunches, 4 dinners

COVID UPDATE : If your trip is canceled prior to departure in the event of a COVID-19-related reason, a full refund will be made.

An off-the-beaten-path trip during Vietnam’s greenest season… Venture into the heart of Indochina as you explore the bustling, frenetic cities of Hanoi & Ho Chi Minh City as well as the lesser-visited Pu Luong Nature Reserve. April is the perfect time to visit Vietnam as the crowds are fewer and the rice fields that stretch as far as the eye can see are brilliant shades of green. See Vietnam as few get to see it.

Verdant rice fields & local villages: Pu Luong’s misty hillsides and rolling green landscapes are often overshadowed by the now touristy Sa Pa. Enjoy serene views in peace and relax in our hotel’s infinity pool while taking in the scenery.

Cruise Ha Long Bay in style: Sail around the untouched areas of Ha Long Bay away from the hordes of tourists on a 5-star luxury ship.

Travel like a local: Hop on the back of a motorbike with our expert drivers to see the real Ho Chi Minh City through the eyes of the Saigonese!

A boating experience like no other: Hop in a bamboo basket boat and paddle downriver in Hoi An while local fishermen cast their nets for today’s catch.
