Greetings Dreamers & Schemers!

Sweet summer has finally arrived in Minnesota, but that doesn't mean we can't break away for a few hours to ponder more exotic places...

On Thursday, June 23, from 7 – 9p, please join us for an informal Meetup to talk travels, BreakAways, and ???. We’ll have a light agenda, serious $4 beers & $5 wines, and face-to-face fun & chat. (Food menu also available.)

Our special guest will be Mr. Doug Mack (http://www.douglasmack.net/), a career breaker, writer, blogger, and travel vet who’s so dang talented he’s got a book coming out with Perigree Books/Penguin. It’s called “Europe on Five Wrong Turns a Day: One man, Eight Countries, One Vintage Travel Guide.” (http://www.douglasmack.net/europe)

Yep, he left his job behind and used ONLY an outdated travel book to tour Europe—no TripAdvisor, no Twitter, no Rickie Stevie! He’s got hilarious stories and touching experiences. A few topics we may land on include…

The ups and downs of information overload on the road—how to truly “get lost.” The joys of the beaten path—finding delights despite the crowds. The evolution of guidebooks and tourism, especially about Western Europe. So please join us and enjoy yourself. As always, bring your mates and tales.
