Wat we doen
This is a group for anyone interested in taking long weekend trips out of Amsterdam, to bounce around Europe. Please join us also at:
We'll meet twice every 3-6 weeks (or "on demand"). The first meeting is for the large general membership to brainstorm city ideas. After the city or cities have been finalized, perhaps the second meeting(s) is a (fun!) afternoon for small groups to independently announce, plan and book travel/accommodations/itinerary to the new European city... Trips will typically last 3-5 days (including travel days), and hopefully designed to visit the occasional festival (i.e. Oktoberfest / San Fermin) or sports event (i.e. Wimbledon/French Open/soccer)... Group size per trip should probably be at least 4 people. Ideally, we can all board the same airplane flights! If groups become "too big", no need to worry; everybody would be welcome to have their own private tour activities. But then hopefully everyone attempts to meet up at least once during the trip!
Budget-wise, trips will generally involve hotels, not hostels. That said, this group is still mainly intended for adventure, not necessarily for luxury, and so fits young or even mid-level professionals particularly well. Singles, couples, Dutchies and ex-pats are equally welcomed.
