This group is for those that love to travel. We are primarily geared toward independent foreign travel, meaning not using a tour company or cruise line. We welcome both those who are well traveled and those who have never ventured over borders. We hope that by bringing these two groups together we can help out everyone. It seems that most of the travel groups on Meetup are run by people trying to sell you something, such as multi-level marketing scams. This group is run by lovers of independent travel and we are not here for financial gain and will not subject you to any marketing pitches (though we may occasionally host a speaker who has a book to sell). Although seemingly any information is available on the internet these days, it can still be helpful to get together to trade tips and stories and get questions answered. You may even find a travel partner!
