What we're about

GO AS A GROUP... DO SOMETHING AMAZING!

But first, remember to sign up at https://travelconnection.live for your TC Rewards link. Also visit our sponsors at https://www.heynuna.com to learn more about how to compare all the best travel deals from all the top travel sites in one simple search and save both time and money. (https://travelconnection.live)

Holidays offer the perfect opportunity to take a break from your hectic schedule and embark on exciting adventures around the country, or as the younger generations increasingly prefer, abroad. And what better way to enjoy this type of holiday than to spend it with like-minded friends and family? Group travel maximizes quality time, leaving plenty of moments to relax, engage in activities or fun-filled entertainment and even get down to business. Wherever your dreams take you... this get-together is a great opportunity to get inspired and learn more about where to go and what to do when you get there. And now you can also earn 50% of HeyNuna (our sponsor's) revenue as TC Rewards when you refer a friend to HeyNuna and that friend books a flight, hotel, car, or any other travel product, and for your own bookings...

The main reason for creating this group is to foster a community of travel buddies, promoting the opportunity to socialize, enjoy shared adventures, and create new friendships. We hope that through our shared journeys we can create fantastic ways for like-minded people who share common interests to enrich their shared experiences, making the holiday more fun and more memorable… that many of you will find luck, and when you're ready to share your joy, we'd be happy to celebrate with you at sea, or on a beautiful sandy beach in the middle of the ocean. Even if you just want to pull off the biggest surprise when you pop the question, we can be in on the conspiracy too :-)

OUR COMMUNITY GUIDELINES

• Be polite
• Don't spam
• Don't post payment info on Group/Meetup pages.

This is a casual, social group for anyone who's looking to connect with fellow travel lovers or join one or more of our upcoming trips. Our general local meetups, will take the form of "Bon voyage" and/or "Welcome home" parties where you can begin to get acquainted with other like-minded individuals on your upcoming trip, but also meet people who have crossed the globe and can share inspiring insights and photos of their journeys.

Alleviate all stress associated with planning the perfect group holiday. Group Admins and Trip Leaders will plan the group route, transfers, accommodation and tours in advance, but you are, of course, free to add any extra tours and activities to your itinerary. For the safety of the group and its members we can't have just anybody show up at our meetups. We need to know who is coming on each trip. This we are best able to do by involving travel professionals. Our travel professionals have a "duty of care" to ID every person who books through them, and to advice (though not require) everyone booking through them to invest in a travel protection plan.

TAKE THE LEAD... BECOME A TRIP LEADER

Trip Leaders are natural networkers. They're responsible for the success of their trip, from mobilizing the number of travelers needed, to keeping members informed, motivated, and happy, from planning to finish. Trip Leaders love to bring people together, and get to travel free, when they reach the group goal, for taking the lead as volunteers.

This opportunity is open to all members. We'll teach and guide you all the way on how to get people to jaw-dropping places filled with friendly faces all over the world!

We’re looking for friendly, motivated people who:

• Lead the way: Communicate regularly through the discussion forums and inspire other members.

• Share their passion: Have fun doing what they love! Nothing motivates more than happy inspiration.

• Build friendships: Create a welcoming environment where people can make connections that last beyond the trip.

Sounds like you? Send me a quick message to indicating your interest, what qualities make you a great Trip Leader, and what you can do to contribute to the trip's success. Also consider updating your intro and adding a photo, if you don't have one, so the group can get to know you.

Join us today, and let's go as a group. You'll return rejuvenated and renewed, with new memories, new perspectives, possibly even new friends.

Want to travel Solo, or take your family on a private trip? Talk to me or dip into an extensive selection of travel options, from personalized luxury holidays to budget-friendly road trips—and take advantage of the very best prices and services available today by visiting our sponsor's website at https://www.heynuna.com/

DISCLAIMER

The admins of this group, its organizers, hosts, and trip leaders are all very excited about what experiences we can share together. But as excited as they are, please know that they don't endorse any person you might encounter online, or at any of our events as a potential cabinmate on a cruise, and in supporting all of our journeys, they are not giving you any legal, tax, financial, investment, or relationship advice.
