This is a group for professional women who love to travel and who are looking for travel companions with similar interests. We will be meeting for brunch, lunch, dinner or cocktails to get to know each other, discuss our travel interests, and exchange information, with the goal of developing a circle of friends to travel with.
This group will be most suitable for women who are well-established in their careers and professions, or are retired, and who have the time and means to travel. Members should be currently single but no one will be asked to leave if they marry! Members should be interested in exploring the world, and should also be interested in art, antiques, history, culture, politics, civics and, of course, good food. There will be some beach/relaxing trips, including cruises, but most will be aimed at exploring and experiencing other cultures.
We all like a good bargain, so if a member spots an exceptional value and shares it, that can become a trip, but the focus of the group is not cheap travel. We are looking for quality trips at a good price. Trips will be planned with value in mind, but the group is not be considered "budget travel" group. Since we are all volunteers, once a trip has been planned and completed it would be very rare for it to be repeated. So if you are interested, sign up early.
Members are encouraged to suggest and host Meetups, such as a lunch in a restaurant near your home or office. Members are also strongly encouraged to suggest trips, with some detail. I am always happy to discuss potential trips, but you must be willing to take the lead in organizing it.
Because this group is dedicated to forming personal relationships and friendships, a reasonably recent photograph of you (not your new puppy or your favorite shoes) is required within 30 days of becoming a member. You must also live or work in DE, DC, MD or VA.
Comments and suggestions are welcome. We look forward to meeting you!
