What we're about
WELCOME TO THE SAN FRANCISCO WORLD TRAVELERS (SFWT)
We are a friendly group of like minded travelers who share a passion for visiting overseas destinations, or for those thinking about world travel for the first time.
WHAT WE DO (AND WHAT WE DON'T)
We meet monthly for drinks in the city. Our objective is to make new friends, share travel stories, tips and thoughts about exciting places that we've visited, or plan to visit in the near future and to remind ourselves why people who travel the world are such good fun to be around.
We don't make presentations, organize slide shows, group trips, or push commercial ventures on you. Unlike some other groups we're not affiliated with travel companies looking to promote their commercial services.
Our SFWT Meet Ups are based upon your personal interaction with other members within the group. There is no formal meeting agenda for these events. However you prefer to travel, we hope to see you at an San Francisco World Traveler's event soon.
NOTE TO COMMERCIAL TRAVEL ORGANIZATIONS:
SFWT is a private, non-commercial, social travel group. Promotion of goods, services or the solicitation of Members at Meet Ups, through the Meet Up messaging portal, the SFWT Message Boards or via this website in any other way, by commercial organizations, non-commercial organizations, or by individuals is contrary to the spirit of the group and will result in expulsion from the group at the sole discretion of the Organizer.
Unless specifically stated, all Meet Ups are non-commercial events. Commercial and non-commercial Message Board solicitations may be deleted by the Organizer without notice.
Please review the groups RSVP / "No Show" policy which is provided under the "Pages" tab.
SFWT SUPPORTS THE GLOBAL BATTLE AGAINST MALARIA
SFWT supports The United Nation's Foundations "Nothing but Nets' initiative to provide mosquito bed nets to families in Africa. As such all event attendees are asked to make a $2.00 donation to this important and valuable cause. Donations are not used to cover meet up fees or expenses and are contributed 100% to Nothing but Nets (www.nothingbutnets.net). Further information is provided under the "Pages" tab.
