We are a social, physically active group of people who like to travel and learn about exciting destinations and cultures around the world. I cannot stress this statement enough. Walking is an essential part of our tours. We average 4-6 miles per day while on tour. Just walking through the average international airport can be a long way if you are not used to it. If this sounds like something that you cannot physically do at a fairly brisk pace, then we are not the right group for you.
We meet often for social events, to sample ethnic restaurants and attend travel lectures. We often attend benefits and cultural festivals of all types, especially those involving music, art, film or dance. For this reason, we need a recognizable, RECENT photo for membership, along with a real name, not an acronym. When we look for you at a meeting, we need to know who to look for. This is for our safety as well as yours.
A large percentage of our members are looking for travel buddies. Are you? Some of our members have found compatible travel partners and are now happily planning trips together. Your chances of finding new friends and travel partners increases greatly when you post an up-to-date photo of yourself, along with a well-written profile.
We think our club is the friendliest, most welcoming Meetup group in town! Come find out for yourself! We travel together on group tours three to four times per year. Our trips average 9-14 days, but can be longer. We often add extensions on the front or back of the tours, to get the most from our airfare dollars. I may add a hiking experience or kayaking tour to the trip, for the enjoyment of everyone and to get a closer look at the places we visit.
If you'd like to join our group, please complete your profile and add a photo of yourself. To get the most out of your affiliation with our group, don't just sign up and forget us! RSVP for some of our events to make new friends and learn more about the world.
