What we're about
This group provides excellent opportunities for exchanging ideas about travel destinations, how to get there, and what to do in locations around the globe! Meet potential travel companions and other travelbugs, and find out where they've been.
Here is your chance to show off your travel photos and tell your travel stories to like minded travel bugs. Give presentations on countries you've been. Or come and get some tips about the places you're planning to go, from someone else who's been there. Have some fun, meet some like-minded people!
Our goal is to meet at least once a month in Edmonton for a presentation by a member of the group (or at times guest speakers) on an area of the world they have visited, showing pictures and giving some travel information and tips about that area. Keep your eyes peeled for social meet-ups where we try worldly cuisine at a local ethnic restaurant, hold mini focus groups discussing a certain part of the world, attend local travel inspired events going on in our city and much more. Anyone who loves to travel is welcome to join our group! Generally, $2 is collected from each attendee at each Meetup, to cover the costs of the Meetup website.
As of this fall though leadership in the group is lacking. I (the lead organizer) am now retired and travelling 6-8 months of the year, camping/hiking/backpacking the remaining months. I am still willing to carry the website cost and help train new leadership but I can't organize many events. If your interested in organizing, please answer yes to the willing-to-help question and send me a message. Once I get a few helpers I will get something going remotely. In the meantime. hand in there and thank you for joining.
