What we're about

This group is for all the travel-lovers out there, and especially those who are interested in meeting other people to travel together with. In addition to the small-group international trips that we host, there will also be local meetup events which are a great way for all kinds of travelers to connect, swap stories, seek travel advice, and get inspired. There is no pressure to join an upcoming trip at the general local events -- just come on out to meet and mingle with like-minded globetrotters!

If you've always wanted to travel abroad, but aren't quite sure *how* to go about it, meet others who know! Or, if you have traveled and want to share and swap stories with others, and find the inspiration for your next trip! At the general local meetups, you'll not only meet people who have traversed the globe and can share the detailed ins and outs of how best to go about that... but you'll also be able to create and find out about upcoming opportunities to take that leap together with other like-minded individuals.

For those who are interested, you can check out all the upcoming international trips we're hosting at: www.traversejourneys.com If an international trip we're hosting is of interest to you, please RSVP "yes" on the Meetup page. It just means that you'd like more information -- it is not an obligation to go!
