There are amazing hikes around the world, including ones here in our backyard. This month we will have a group conversation, with attendees sharing stories of hikes they have taken worldwide. Discover traveler's favorite spots in other countries as well as day trips accessible from Portland.

We will start the group discussion at 6:15. This is earlier than normal, but will help control the noise in the great private room we have at Caldera Pub. Plus, it will give us more time to discuss lots of hikes far and near.

Talk Travels are free, however, all attendees are asked to donate $3 to cover meetup costs. Also, please plan to buy food and/or drink to support the venue. ONLY RSVP IF YOU PLAN TO ACTUALLY ATTEND. Talk Travels are often super popular and get wait-lists. Not turning up if you have registered is tough on other travelers, the hosts/speakers, and the venue. Please be considerate and honor your RSVP.

There is free street parking around Caldera Public House. Plus, it is on a bus route. Do order drinks and food at the main floor bar. Then join us upstairs.
