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 a travel buddy, or a 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.

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 meetup, too:

Webinar - Learn About Our latest trips

Needs a location

Since we all don't live in New York, and even if you do, it's cold out, I thought a webinar describing the upcoming trips would be a good idea. For those not familiar with webinars - you need a laptop or computer to view the seminar on line, in the comfort of your own home. I will present the trips. You will have the opportunity to ask questions. Just like a regular meeting - except you can't give me the money. So, please sign up for the trips you are interested in (remember, it's not an obligation to go), and I will know what to talk about. Please join us! Ellen Mc Nulty will be discussing our upcoming trips, including: Tulip Time Cruise Best of Spain Azamara Greek Intensive Cruise Independence Day Celebration, Halifax And Boston Fireworks Cruise Historic Trains of the Old West There will be an opportunity for questions, too. If there is another trip you would like me to feature (time allowing), just email me: [masked] Here is the link to register for the webinar: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7707650574657476109 All of the instructions are included. You just need a computer and a phone. Each person needs to register separately
