What we're about


JOIN OUR FREE AND NOW PRIVATE GROUP! In an effort to protect the privacy of members, I recently made the group private. If you would like to receive notifications and participate in all of our local events and international trips, simply join our free group!

WE ARE THE ORIGINAL MAINE TRAVEL MEETUP GROUP FOUNDED IN 2012! !! With a combined membership of over 2000 travel lovers and/or dreamers statewide , we meet on a regular basis to hike, walk, visit wineries, museums and festivals, dine out or partake in other fun activities both indoors and out. After an event we often end up at a local watering hole to chat and exchange travel stories, plans, adventures and dreams. All are welcome! A really fun group of people.

Click here for our upcoming trips! Where would you like to go in 2022 and beyond? I am looking for requests! I can also recommend alternative tours and destinations.. Just ask! http://www.grouptoursite.com/annroy

JOIN US AND TRAVEL WITH FRIENDS! HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO TRAVEL AND EXPERIENCE THE FOOD AND CULTURE OF THE DESTINATION BUT HAVEN'T HAD ANYONE TO TRAVEL WITH? Would you like to meet other adults with similar interests? We hold frequent local Meetups for members who wish to get together to socialize, and other members simply join the group to get notifications of upcoming trips and that is fine too.

There is no cost or obligation for those who want to participate in local hikes and other adventures, and no pressure to enroll on international tours. Just a really fun group of active people who share similar interests. All are welcome!

Please respect the No Show Policy.. Please respect the No Show Policy.. No-shows impact everyone. It is very inconvenient when people do not change their RSVP causing the group to wait for a no show, or worse.. Oftentimes there is a waitlist for an event and if there is a no-show, someone on the waitlist can't go. Or, I have a reservation at a venue and a no-show creates an empty seat. As of now, for the good of the group, I will have to keep track of no shows with consequences after the second time. I understand that extenuating circumstances and honest mistakes can happen to everyone! Rather than asking me to change an RSVP, members are responsible for changing their own RSVPs when they can't come. This is very easily done on the meetup site. Also, depending on the meetup location I am usually available by phone at the last minute so please keep me updated! 207-557-1707


after 2nd no-show.. the member can not attend an event for 1 month

3rd no-show.. the member will be removed from the group.

A member can be reinstated at any time after a conversation with the organizer.
