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!

For those you are interested, you can check out all the upcoming trips: www.traversejourneys.com

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!
