Sherry could spin tales from here to China. And she will! But to help keep us on course, we’ll zero in on a few topics every traveler must tackle, including…

Finding travel partners
Locating longer-term housing
Guesstimating expenses

And she was a mastermind behind September’s wildly buzzy national Meet, Plan, Go ( event—which inspired this recent New York Times travel story ( all about our career break movement.

So be there or…be left behind! We’ll pepper Sherry with Q&A for the first hour or so, and then mingle and relax amidst an Asian vibe, a bubbling fountain, and a great group of dreamers and schemers. Tell your friends and save the date!
