Wondering where to go in 2019? Find out the Top Travel Destinations of 2019 from International Travel Expert, Shyla Esko Bare. At this annual Talk Travel, she will share the top spots according to industry research and our meetup vibe.

This is a free event, however, we ask those attending to donate $3 - $5 to cover meetup costs and to buy the speakers a drink. We will be at the British Overseas Restaurant Corp (BORC). This restaurant will be open just for our group, so please support them by ordering food and/or drink. Street parking in the area is free, but limited, so give yourself time to find a spot, or better yet take public transport.

There is limited seating at all our meetups, so ONLY RSVP IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND. It is important that we have an accurate headcount. If your plans change after signing up - go to and switch your RSVP. Talk Travels are often super popular and get wait-lists. So no showing is tough on other travelers, the speakers, and the venue. Please be considerate and honor your RSVP.

Photos taken at the event may be used by Shyla & Dan Bare, or Wild Spirit Travel, in social media, websites, or print. They may promote future meetups, travel talks/classes, or general Wild Spirit Travel activities. By attending the event, you give consent to be in photos.
