  • Hi everyone,

    If interested in hosting a meet-up this year on your past travels please post in the comment section below.  This 'event' is just so people can post in comment section and is not an actual event. 

    So I get a lot of messages from people wanting to find travel partners or wanting to learn more about a specific country. Well we have people in this group who have been to those countries and can offer tips and suggestions so I thought of a good way to connect the two.

    Starting next month one of our members will present to the group about a specific country they have been to and have knowledge of and then if you are interested in traveling there or just looking to hear more about that country you can come.

    I am in another group that did this and its really fun and informative! I am also doing this with another LGBTQ group as well. :-)

    This will also be great for the host of the meet-up; as how many times have we traveled and taken a ton of photos and never really looked at them again so this way you can somewhat re-live your awesome travels while helping others who want to go there.

    It would also be a good way to meet potential travel partners as well.

    We will find a place that has a computer hook up and you can show pics and maps and just tell people about your experience in that country; what you liked and what you disliked,  gay-friendly hotels and venues as well as what the scene is there, transportation, budget, etc...

    We need involvement from the group though. So if you have knowledge of a specific area both domestic or abroad ( and about the gay scene there) then you can post below in comments with area you have knowledge of.

    Each month we will choose a different location so maybe one month someone can present on Mexico and the next month someone can present on Spain and one month on a gay friendly cruise and so on. 

    So please post about the area you think you could present on in the comment section below. We will do this once a month.

    You don't have to have extreme knowledge of that area but be able to help people who want to go there that might have questions about what city to visit, safety for LGBTQ, what to bring, whats the food like, gay-friendly establishments, etc....

    Thanks everyone and please post in the comment section below what you have knowledge of and then we will pick the host for our first meet-up and we will pick someone new each month!

  • Lorenzo

    I can host on March 5th or March 26th in the afternoon in my condo party room in the mid-Market area. I can present slides and talk on India (Golden Triangle) where I was last year or Columbia where I will be going next month.

    1 · January 26

    • Karim

      That would be great and if there is time I could show some pictures of my to India.

      January 26

    • Lorenzo

      Yes, I was hoping you would offer to show some of the Southern Indian journey that you went on. We can have some chat and chaat (appetizers). Hopefully, the organizers can confirm it on the schedule.

  • Thomas R.

    So how does the hosting thing work again? I would like to present on my trip to Norway as well as my partner and my trip to Italy

    January 25

    • Jack S.

      I'm currently scheduling the next meeting. If you get your presentation lined up we will find a time to show you're pictures! I'll keep to posted

      January 25

    • Vadim

      Would people be interested to see another presentation for (in this case) Norway after the main one? It's probably a different travel style and different experience so together they would cover more than one. I don't think my Norway trip is worth a separate presentation but I can piggyback on someone's else. :)

  • Matthew C.

    Hi All looking forward to meeting everyone...think this will be a great opportunity to discuss potential trips and find travel buddies too!

  • Ben

    Hi, I thought I saw an email about who to send images to if we're planning to attend on Jan. 23. Can you update this event with those details so we can send our images. I'm planning to present on somewhat recent trips: Madrid/Barcelona, Australia and Montreal.

    January 16

    • Jack S.

      Ben, do you plan on coming on Saturday? It would be great to have you show some pictures from your travels, either more recent ones or any particular favorites.

      January 20

  • Jack S.

    Hey guys, will you be able to give me a quick confirmation reply to show you're actually coming? I've reserved space and a TV at the valley tavern and just want to make sure we've got people who want to come! Go ahead and email me your pictures in the order you want them to me at [masked]

    January 19

    • Thomas R.

      Me and my partner Jeff will be coming. For future meetups I can present on Norway or Italy (i just have a mass of pictures right now not really organized)

      January 19

    • Jack S.

      That's great--no rush. Seems like there are a number of volunteers and I can always fill in

      January 19

  • Jim B.

    I would be happy to share experience and slides of Peru.

    November 28, 2015

    • Jack S.

      Jim, will you send me your slides about Peru? This seems like a good country to kick things off with.

  • Kiran R.

    I just got back from Germany and have trips scheduled for London,Prague,Paris(June) and Iceland In december..Would be great if i can find some travel buddies for my trip to Iceland in December.Looking forward to attending this event.

    1 · January 19

    • Thomas R.

      We have been considering an Iceland trip due to the WOW air deals.. May be after Christmas though

      January 19

    • Kiran R.

      I got my ticket through WOW air deals as well..it wasn't as cheap as they advertised but again its cheaper when compared to other airlines to Iceland and its an 8 hour flight..so i am going from dec 22nd until jan 1st.

      January 19

  • John M.

    I'd be glad to attend. Besides work, I have never been out of the country (except Canada) but that changes this year starting with Rio next month.

    January 17

  • Thomas R.

    Are 26 people actually going to this now that it has a time and place? I have to check my schedule now, but if you are looking for an accurate count, you may want to create a new event

    I would be willing to provide information or present for anyone wanting to travel to Bali, Thailand or Cambodia. I could also do China as well.

  • Michael S.

    I'd be very interested in attending a meet up like this to talk about ideas an hear from those who want to share ideas. Mostly been Euro-traveler myself and not extensively, but would love the opp to chat with other gay men with thoughts of group travel. I'll keep an eye out for location and dates here. Thanks!

    October 19, 2015

  • Karim

    I think this is a marvelous idea. I have been too and lived in many countries, and have travelled extensively to over 30 countries, and I would love to show pictures and talk about my travel that I have done in the past 2-3 years; India, Ecuador, Peru, Ireland.

    October 16, 2015

    • Rebecca

      Hey Karim, I got 2 messages in the past about Peru so that would be great if you could tell us about your trip there! As well as India would be cool!

      1 · October 17, 2015

    • Karim

      Would be my pleasure, I went to Ecuador and Peru in the same trip and would like to tell about how amazing Ecuador is and usually over looked.

      October 17, 2015

  • John

    I also just got back from Barcelona and London. These were my first trip to both so I may not be the best source but I am happy to share my experiences.

    October 17, 2015

  • John

    Hey. I have been traveling to Puerto Vallarta at least once a year for the last several years so happy to share my experiences with the group. I have gone so often I have stopped taking pics but I'm sure I can find a few.
