Daydreaming at your desk? Wandering the bookstore travel section, wishing yourself away? Whether you've been to a lot of places or just hope to go someday, let's bring a bit of the wide world home right now. We'll read travel writing from around the globe, see travel films, talk about our experiences and plans, and inspire each other to hit the road. Maybe you'll even make a friend to take with you.

Book, movie and event suggestions welcome. I'm also open to organizing short trips, perhaps to DC for events at National Geographic.

**Did you know that organizing a Meetup is not free? We're now over the "basic" 50 person membership limit ($10/mo), and on to Unlimited ($15/mo). Please consider tossing a dollar or two toward the group, so I can keep it open to any and everyone who wants to join!
