International Travel Group Meeting - July 2nd @ 9:30 a.m. Pacific Time Zone

Do you like to travel and have discussions about it with like minded people? If yes, this is the place for you. Please feel free to join us, no matter where you live.

I know this is a holiday weekend, but I hope you have a couple of hours Sunday to participate.
Every meeting there will be topics to discuss.

Topics for this month:

  • Cruises and River Boat trips, what are the pros and cons?
  • With so many people traveling, how do you manage crowded places and conditions?

Please let me know in a reply to this post or with a PM if you are interested. If you have participated previously I already have your email address. If you haven’t you will need to send it to me in a PM. If you have told me you are interested and later find you can’t participate please let me know.

I will be emailing the Zoom link an hour or two before the meeting begins.

Please think of some topics for future meetings and share them during the meeting or you can PM me if you prefer.
Upcoming meetings will be:

August 6
September 3
October 1

I will miss this month (heading to Grand Tetons with friends) but hopefully be online for the August meeting. :)

My answer, though, is to go where all the people aren’t. 🤣

Thanks for the invite Andrea

I'm unsure about that weekend at the mo - trying to get back to Germany but may have not left by then. Hope I can play in zoomland.

Please include me. We recently booked a 14 night cruise up the coast of Norway with 4 other couples so this topic is a good one for me.

Hi, Andrea, please count me in. The family is GONE on vacation, so no last minute emergencies!

I'd like to join, thank you!

And I would add a variation on the "crowded places" theme which is Are you making more reservations for dinners? and Are you finding that those dinner reservations are actually held for you?

Please addme to the rsvps -

and I also would put an addendum on the crowding topic by asking people for stories about when having a car was really worth it b/c you got someplace the masses weren't.

Please add me to the dl for July's meeting. I did send you a PM as well. We've taken 3 river cruises so I like this topic.

Any room for me? My husband does tours for the cruise ships so might be able to add a bit of info about that.

Please still send us a link but if we don’t join in we may still be out touring for the day. Things got rescheduled here with a rainy day recently…

Mona, I’m not sure why sightseeing in Vienna is more interesting than talking and hearing about travel, but whatever. 😉 I hope you enjoy your day.

Fabulous call. I especially enjoyed this one. Sorry, I had to leave so suddenly. I had been waiting for a call from my daughter and she called. Thanks, again.

We missed the discussions and seeing you all too! Tours with locals, not the official organization but a local friend of a friend, are proving interesting. Andrea and Jim catch us up when we get back—good topics.

Mona, I can’t remember when you are coming home. We leave next Monday for the PNW and will arrive home on the 27th probably. Let plan to get together. Enjoy the rest of your trip. I’m enjoying the pictures on FB.
