What we're about

We are singles and couples who want big experiences for small cost. We want to experience exotic places, and we don't want to do it alone. The group will seek out and find great deals, and together we will explore the globe. Have a bucket list but no one to take the plunge with? Well, here's your group.

We only have one request. We have many members who are not able to attend our meetups. Due to the nature of this group, head count, deposits and trip planning are in the center of most everything we do. It is therefore vital that we are able to communicate with each other. After joining, please private message your organizers, either Vicki or Jill with your contact information so that we can organize each trip smoothly.

CANCELLED! Christmas Markets: Budapest, Vienna, Prague

Needs a location

OK. I have booked this trip and released the rooms I was holding. Airfare is slightly higher than first posted and is ONLY AN ESTIMATE, as it is not published yet. If you are interested in this trip, contact Travis at Globus, 303/[masked] and tell him you are with Susan Mangieri. As of tonight, there was still limited space available, but free single supplements sell out quickly! Deposit is $250 at time of reservation. If you want Globus travel insurance, it is an additional $149. I went to the Christmas markets in Germany in December, 2019, and the ones on this itinerary are supposed to be even more spectacular! This 7 day trip PLUS a pre-night in Budapest and a post-night in Prague is priced at $933 NOT INCUDING taxes, fees and airfare from Asheville. Total price should come in around $2000 for 9 days. Here is website for details. https://www.globusjourneys.com/tour/imperial-escape/kcax Come with me and experience the magic of Christmas in Europe!!!
