Holiday Meetup for Travelers!
Mark your December calendars: it's a local Meetup! On Saturday, December 29th from 11a-1p, come on by to mingle with awesomely like-minded travel enthusiasts. Celebrate the holidays right: by getting inspired and excited for all your travel plans in the New Year! Join our holiday get-together at Julius Meinl on Southport Ave and delve in to all your questions about travel, fun stories from gallivanting around the globe, and get inspired for your travels in 2019. See you there! ***IMPORTANT INFORMATION*** For our Holiday Meetup we are going to run a 'White Elephant' style gift exchange between all members who come. What this means is that each person who plans to attend should bring a very specific gift: something from your travels. Bring the gift wrapped up, and when it is chosen be prepared to tell a small story about your item... where you got it, details of the exchange, why it's interesting or unique, etc. The item can be from ANY travel you want -- it does not have to be an international trip. It can even be a framed photograph or a written story from your travels, if you like. Be creative and don't worry about any high monetary value to the item, or part with something that is of high sentimental value to you. This should be a great way for everyone to share a cool travel memory and also to learn about different places they haven't been!

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!
This group is for you if you've always wanted to travel abroad, but aren't quite sure *how* to go about it. Or, if you have traveled and want to share and swap stories with others, and find the inspiration for your next trip! At these 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.

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!
