What we're about

There are nearly two million people in the South Bay, and yet it can be incredibly hard to meet new friends. One of the easiest ways to meet people is through common interests, and this group aims to provide a wide variety of activities with the goal of allowing people to get to meet and hopefully become friends while doing interesting and fun things.

Right now we are in the middle of a pandemic, so we are unable to do indoor events. When the pandemic is over we will schedule dances, cocktail parties, speed dating, etc. indoors. In the meanwhile, we are setting up outdoor events, which are much safe, or zoom online events. Adults of all ages are welcome at almost all of our events.

All of our events benefit The Seva Foundation, www.seva.org, to restore sight to the blind. Every $50 we raise finances an eye surgery in one of the poor countries of the world!

Epic Machu Picchu THREE WAYS-Salkantay Route, Inca Trail AND Train!!

San Francisco International Airport

There are THREE ways to get to Machu Picchu. All of them are stunning and storied. WE ARE DOING ALL THREE!

The Salkantay Trek is an ancient and remote footpath located in the same region as the Inca Trail where massive snowcapped mountains collide with lush tropical rain forests. It is less travelled than the Inca Trail, with breathtaking vistas! Considered by many the better alternate to get to Machu Picchu. It is also not that heavily regulated with government taxes and fees. Hence, the good price!

The Inca Trail is the "tourist" route. We are doing the 2-day hike, which is the second half of the classic Inca Trek. It is shorter and less difficult than the Salkantay. The view is mostly rainforest canopy and some ancient historic sights.

The Train is just as it sounds. No long hike. Travel by rail and with less effort. This is intended for those with either less mobility or those that wish to glamp it a bit.

Peru (and Machu Picchu) is OPEN for travel!!! This interim moment between the whole world opening up and all back to normalcy is the PERFECT opportunity for this dream escape!

Some want the stunning hikes. (Salkantay)
Others want "The Classic" (Inca Trail)
And still others may have mobility issues, or just want luxury (The Train)

We are doing this trip 3 different ways to be able to be more inclusive of all.

Addionally we are
Certified Wilderness First Responder/Wilderness First Aid
