This group is intended for those who want to experience the world and share their knowledge with other like-minded travelers. It is primarily a social group that has been successful in Vancouver and one of our regulars, Nathan, has relocated to Calgary and is excited to introduce our concept there.
The leadership team look forward to supporting Nathan with this group in the Calgary area and most importantly to see you in fascinating places in our world including Mexico City, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Bali, and many more.
This is a meetup for travelers of all ages, budgets, and travel styles. We're an informal group that seeks to help and inspire each other no matter the destination. If you have a location in mind, are seeking a buddy to join you on an adventure, have been to many places, or are just looking for ideas, you'll get something from this meetup.
I look forward to seeing you all there.
These trips are for all levels and styles of travelers so come to 1 of our meetups to get more details . If you are a new or inexperience traveler we can help with Planning, Packing, Safety, Tech stuff or any other questions you may have .
This is also for people who don't like travelling alone but still want someone to have dinner and a drink with at the end of the day and for people who don't want to pay tour prices and have flexibility of their days.
Myfunkytravel does very accurate backpacker costs for most countries. They have just posted Indonesia - $25 US /day budget backpacker, $40 US/day for higher comfort level (private room etc.)
Gloria (Vancouver Group) is definitely going on this trip as she always takes a 2-3 month trip in the winter. She has booked her flights and accommodations yet but when she does , we will update the event .
