From time to time we may also offer additional activities that may include Educational Workshops, Trips to Galleries & Museums, Urban Exploring, Meeting for Drinks (Socials), Salsa Dancing, Dining out and a wide variety of other possibilities.
Going on trips with like-minded friends is always more fun, and you'll find them here. We are a friendly, outgoing and quirky bunch who like to challenge ourselves and have a good time while doing it. Our group sizes tend to be smaller here compared to other meetups, but we feel you get to know people better and have a safer experience as a result. We welcome diversity, folks who can laugh and people who respect nature and all the beauty it has to offer us!
