International Travel Meeting - Sunday January 8 @ 9:30am Pacific Time

It’s time for another International Travel meeting. If you like talking about travel and interacting with others who share the same passion this is the place for you. Everyone is welcome, no matter where you live.

There’s a limit to the number of participants. You must reply to this thread to be invited. The first 24 people to respond will have priority to be admitted to the meeting. I can send more invites in case any of the those 24 people don't log in. We 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 this hasn’t been an issue. If someone finds they can’t participate after all, I would appreciate it if you can let me know as soon as possible.

Every meeting there will be topics to discuss.

Topics for this month:

  • Does climate change influence where and when you travel?

  • What goes into planning your itinerary? How do you decide where to go and how long to stay there?

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.

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:

January 22 - decided by the group at the last meeting. There will not be a meeting in February.

March 5

April date to be determined

Include me in the zoom, please!
I am indeed curious to learn how people decide on how long to stay in a spot.

To everyone on today's call: I am so sorry my unstable internet caused me to leave the call. Happy New Year to everyone and I hope it is just Minnesota's unusually high snowfall this past week which is causing my internet to go in and out.

Great (virtual) get together today -- I was so happy to see everyone, especially those we missed the past couple of meetings!

It won't be too too long before I can start thinking in terms of multiple-weeks and months in trip planning, but for now I have to get it vicariously from you who can. :-)

Thanks Andrea & Jim for hosting another great travel meeting!
It was nice to see many of you whom I’d not seen in a while, and to listen to your travel tips.

The show and tell was also fun!
