What we're about

This group is for all the travel-lovers out there! In addition to the small-group international trips that we host, there are a variety of virtual events to join, and we will also try to host local meetup events which are a great way for all kinds of travelers to connect, swap stories, seek travel advice, and get inspired.

We like to encourage our community stay engaged, and host events that help you learn about different cultures and countries across the world.

For those you are interested, you can check out all the upcoming international trips we're hosting here (https://traversejourneys.com/trips/all), and sign up to receive updates and travel discounts here (https://traversejourneys.com/discounts-sign-up).

If an international trip we're hosting is of interest to you, go ahead and RSVP "yes" on the Meetup page. It just means that you'd like more information -- it is not an obligation to go!
