International Travel Meeting - Sunday, August 1 @ 9:30am Pacific Time

Who’s ready for another International Travel Meeting? If you enjoy talking about travel and interacting with others that share the same passion, then this is the place for you.

There is a limit to the number of participants. It has been determined that more than 25 is too many. You must reply to this thread to be invited. The first 24 people to respond will be admitted to the meeting. I can send more invites in case any of the those 24 people don't log in. We will have a 5 minute grace period starting at 9:30 a.m. After that any others still in the 'waiting room' can be admitted, up to a total of 24 people. So far each month anyone who was in the waiting room has been admitted because inevitably some people aren’t able to join in as they had planned. If someone finds they can’t participate after all, I would appreciate it if you can let me know as soon as you know.

Each month there will be a topic or two to discuss. More suggestions are welcome for future months. Of course we will discuss other things as well.

Topics for this month:

  • How do you share your trips with others while traveling? Do you have a blog? Do you share on social media and if so, how?

  • Since some of us are starting to travel or are planning travel let’s briefly revisit our planning strategies. What apps do you use in the planning process and how do we keep organized? Do you use TripIt, spreadsheets, etc? Or are you old school and just write things down?

Please let me know in a reply to this post or with a PM if you are interested. I will then email the Zoom meeting link. If you have participated previously I already have your email address. If you haven’t you will need to send it in a PM.

Future meeting dates -

August 29 (September 5 is a holiday weekend)

I’ve been alerted that some of you may have gotten a zoom link that was for today. Thanks for letting me know Valerie. I have sent out a new link to her and everyone that responded to the post after her. Can everyone please check the link I emailed to verify it is for August 1 at 9:30 a.m. If there’s a problem please let me know. Sorry for any confusion.

Hi Andrea. I'm back home after a long visit in the US and happily decided to have a look at the Forum for the first time to find your post. Please, please add me to the group if there's still an open place.
Thanks again for doing this.

Andrea -- question for the group. Has anyone traveled this year aready, and if so what were the entry requirements ? Original CDC card only? Able to get a EU vaccination card locally to enter museums and restaurants without multiple COVID-19 testing? Ease of crossing borders ? And, of course, requirements can be changed overnight ....

Good morning Andrea and friends. Unfortunately some friends are popping by later so I won't be able to attend after all. Hope to "see" you all next month!
