What we're about

We are Vancouver World Travellers. This group welcomes anyone who has done long term travel around the world. Anyone who has done lots of travelling in the past. Anyone are thinking to start their own Round-The-World trip for the first time. All are welcome, it does not matter if you are from Vancouver or not. This group will hold presentation from time to time, activity gathering, or simply a social meetup.

My main travel meetup group is : Eat, Drink, Travel ....Repeat

WHAT WE DO (AND WHAT WE DON'T)

There is no formal meeting agenda. Our objective is to make new friends, share travel stories, tips and thoughts about exciting places that we've visited, or plan to visit in the near future and to remind ourselves why people who travel the world are such good fun to be around.

We are non-profit and commercial group. It is purely for personal social meetup.

Our Vancouver World Travellers Meet Ups are based upon your personal interaction with other members within the group.

Upcoming events (1)

New West Travel Meetup

The Boathouse Restaurant

Our summer picnic/bbq's during covid were a success as many attended which made it a great atmosphere.

With the weather turning cold and wet + the vaccine rollout and vaccination passport it's time to move indoors again .

3. important points
1. I have to make reservations so if you cant make it change your RSVP as soon as you know. If i reserve to 20 and only 8 show up , it cost the restaurant money and gives us a bad name.
2. You are responsible to pay and tip for your meal and drinks
3. Im going to pick the New West Boathouse now but may change as i need to go look at setups as its been almost 2 years since ive been there
