What we're about

About us

Our group helps you explore the world armed with greater empathy. We introduce places beyond the usual tourist hangouts and discuss how to connect with locals.

Our group may be most suited to people who like to travel solo, but we do welcome all. We do have meetups for people who are travelling solo for the first time, people travelling with infants or elderly family members, and those travelling with limited mobility. We also try to apprise you of travel frauds and rackets, safe travel tips, and useful online research techniques.

Member and meet participant data protection

We do not send commercial messages or post external events (more so events that harvest emails, reek of scam/ MLM/cryptocurrency rackets.) If any member hassles you for emails, private contacts etc., please let us know, we will be happy to block the offender.

For show and tell sessions, we may request you to email your travel photos in advance. However, we will delete your email (or mobile message) and pictures at the end of the meetup.

The library may take photos at the meet. We will never tag the participants in the photos. Also, if you do not want to appear on the photo, let us know.
