What we're about

Are you in the 2% or the 98% that does nothing, but wants to travel?

Do you like to travel, but not have anyone who shares your interests - or your budget? This group is to help find whole group to go with. It's for people who enjoy traveling, meeting people, and making new friends. We have a whole roster of trips - from 3 day weekends to cruises and week or longer trips to Europe, Asia and more. Couples, singles, and friends are all welcome on our trips.

Married, single, traveling with a partner? We can accommodate all of you. All we ask is that you are 40+ and share a love of travel and adventure.

Are you single and prefer not to travel alone? We specialize in finding good deals for those on their own. Travel with the group by day, have your own room by night. Are you married or in a long term relationship and your spouse or partner can't get away, has different interests, or doesn't like to travel? You can have your own room, if you wish to pay a low single supplement. We will have pre-event meetups so you can also discuss rooming with a same sex roommate. This group is a perfect way for you to travel and not have to go alone. Of course, you can bring along a non-member to share with, too.

I travel often and I always have a full list of places I want to visit. I am a travel agent and I have been to more than 90 countries. I organize all of trips, but I do not travel with every group.

If a trip is of interest to you, please rsvp "yes". It just means that you'd like more information It is not an obligation to go. You are not confirmed on a trip until we receive payment.

I am trying to keep this a "Yes" only group so, if the timing of a certain event doesn't work for you or it is not something that you are interested in, we understand and we'll see you at some other event. In that case, please don't feel like you need to respond by RSVPing with a "No" but if you are planning to join us at an event, please RSVP "Yes" as early as possible.


I do periodically reorganize the membership to keep the list of active members current, so if you have not been on the site in a year or more, I assume you are no longer interested. You can just rejoin when you wish to be active.

You are also welcome to join events at my other meetups, too:
