  • Meetup on The Orient Express Paris, Venice, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Istanbul!!

    Los Angeles starting point for The Orient Express

    Meetup on The Orient Express!!!! The Orient Express, . . . you have heard it many times. The romance, the mystery, the adventure!! Of course with the opulence too! This trip brings back the romance and adventure of train travel, along with the mystery of new cities and countries. Brought back in a special way; adding value and removing inflated expense of excessive opulence by replacing it with service and contemporary refinement. The journey will mirror the original Orient Express route and go from Paris to Istanbul. You will visit Paris, Venice, Vienna, Prague, Budapest and Istanbul. The trip starts in Paris and has a full two days there. Also staying two full days in Vienna, 1 ½ days in Budapest, with full days in Venice, Prague, and Istanbul. Guided tours in each city, and one meal a day are also included! Included additionally are many other options and extras. We travel as a group, and also have the flexibility of hop-on, hop-off tours and museum passes with "skip the line" option so you enjoy a complete independence. You are free to do your own thing, cater to your special interests, visit other sights and locations in the cities. You can do it independently, or you can join new friends traveling with you, and do it together. The idea is come alone, meet new like-minded people and make lifelong memories...without being stuck with the "one size fits all" tour formula. Here is a basic thumbnail: ** Paris for two full days. * Night Train Paris to Venice **Venice for a full day * Night Train Venice to Vienna **Vienna for two full days * Night Train Vienna to Prague ** Prague for a full day * Night Train Prague to Budapest ** Budapest for two (almost full) days * Late flight Budapest to Istanbul ** Istanbul for full day. * Hotels nights in Paris, Vienna, Budapest and Istanbul What was The Orient Express? And why re-create it? The Orient Express was long-distance passenger train service that began in 1883 with the original endpoints being Paris to Istanbul. In Istanbul the Pera Palace Hotel was built in 1892 as the accommodations at the terminus. And we are staying in it!!! Although the original. The name became synonymous with intrigue and was a showcase of luxury with comfort at a time when traveling was still rough and dangerous. The route changed many times, and was eventually shortened to Bucharest, then later shortened to Budapest as the endpoint. And again shortened to either Venice or Vienna. By 2007 The Orient Express was only Paris to Strasbourg, and in 2009 stopped service altogether. So the real Orient Express is but a memory. There is a price for opulent luxury, . . . and we are not paying it. With this trip, we visit more cities, with guided tours included in each, a meal a day, as well as all transfers and hotels with concierge quality service. Give in to the lure of the rails with adventure, tempered with value resulting in memories of a lifetime. EVERY aspect of this trip is epic. Visit picturesque and storied cities Paris, Venice, Vienna, Prague, Budapest and Istanbul. Enjoy four night trains and experience the enchantment of the rails. We are even staying in the original destination of Pera Palace Hotel in Istanbul with it's grandeur and opulence. All the details are taken care of so all you have to do is join in & revel in the magic of all the places we are traveling to. In the end you will have visited 6 countries: France, Italy, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary and Turkey! Includes: all trains all accommodations all train cabins all transfers guided tours in each city a meal a day and more The only way to secure your spot is a $500 deposit. Fully refundable to 90 days before the event. Final payment due 60 days before $500 deposit plus the $2,790 final payment = $3,290 total cost. There is very limited capacity of 22 total. This trip will fill up extremely quickly. It has been posted only a short time and 12 spaces are already taken. Live the adventure instead of only dreaming it !!!

  • Trips - National Parks, Snowboarding and more!

    Needs a location

    **Note: The purpose of this listing is to centralize the upcoming trips in one spot. It is not its own event. ** Have you been wondering what's an organic way to meet new friends and relationships? If you are wondering what I mean by organic, think back to high school and college where meeting new people were as easy as 1-2-3. In the last 5 years, I've hosted many events. Of all the events, the weekend-away trips have been the best places to meet people! This is how I've met some of my closest friends and know that a lot of you have too!

Click --> http://bit.ly/JacksonHoleMeetup If you are like me, the thought of hanging out with strangers, freaks you out, I totally get it. I been there!! I still remember my first meetup. It was a rock climbing event. When I couldn't find the group, I almost left. But, knowing I wanted more climbing friends..... I toughened up and found the group eventually. The first meetup was slightly awkward.... then, the second time, it got easier. By the third week of climbing with these folks, it was like I climbed with them for many years. That's how quickly these friendships were formed. BUT, I almost went home because I almost talked myself out of it... Funny how our mind works, huh? Now, trips. I don't know anyone that has been on these trip and had a bad time nor not made any friends. That's not possible. If you are not dealing with anyone else or their jokes, you will hear my bad jokes. haha. :) Anyhow.... I can write much more about my experiences being on your side ... a guest to an event. Join me and a bunch of other great people at the events and the weekend get-a-ways and let the connection begin! Oh, in case you are wondering, I still wonder at times how guests just sign up to trips without knowing anyone. I give you folks lots of credit.... I would have been the type wondering if the cops would find my body, chopped up in pieces, and in some dump. Haha. Gotta say though, you guys have proven me wrong many times over. It's been a great time! Much Love! Anna Your Happy Organizer

What will the weather be like? Typically the weather in the area is high 70's/80's in the day and high 50's at night. It's great weather to raft and camp! 6. What if I don't know anyone else going - is it weird to go by myself? Not at all! Most people come by themselves to these events and have a blast and end up with a new social circle of friends! 7. What does the 4 p.m. start time mean (in the event description)? 4 p.m. is the earliest you can get to the campsite. You can leave home anytime (morning, noon or after work) but come to the campground by 4 or later. If you leave home in the morning there is plenty to do and see before 4.

  • Save up to $130 on IKON Pass (Mammoth, Bear, Squaw + many more) & start riding!

    Looking to save money on next season's season pass? And did I mention that you can use it immediately this season at Mammoth - they are going to be open until at least July 4?! The IKON Pass covers your favorite local mountains - Mammoth, June, Bear. In Tahoe there is Squaw/Alpine. In SLC there is Snowbird/Alta. In Colorado the 4 @ Aspen. Also included Big Sky, Steamboat, Copper Mountain, Deer Valley, Jackson Hole, Eldora, 4 in Canada and a bunch on the east coast. The IKON Pass comes in two levels - the "IKON Pass" and the "IKON Base Pass". Both give unlimited access to Bear, Mammoth, June, Squaw and more. However with the Base Pass there are blackout dates at some of the resorts (Christmas time, Presidents Day weekend and MLK weekend). A lot of people wonder if getting a pass is worth it. Let's do the math- an individual lift ticket can cost up to $180 or more at Mammoth. Multiply that by 4 days - and guess what, the base pass is cheaper and gives you unlimited riding! Don't have anyone to go with? Yes you do and they are in this group. We are on the mountain every weekend! And we plan trips to use the pass! As a group we went to Mammoth, Squaw/Alpine, Winter Park, Jackson Hole, Aspen, and Utah! Right now the IKON pass is $1049 for the full pass and $749 for the base pass. But you can get a fat discount with a code you enter at checkout, which will bring the price down to $919 for the full pass and $619 for the base! To get this price you need to purchase by Midnight on May 1. After that the price goes up! To get the code you will need to message me (Deee) and provide (1) your full name (2) DOB (3) whether you are a new passholder or a renewing and (4) whether you are going with the full pass or base pass. Once you give me that info I'll give you a code you can use on IKON's website to get a discount. Message me via Meetup. Here is my profile: https://www.meetup.com/members/5551640/ For more information about the pass check out their website: https://www.ikonpass.com/
