George often says, “You don’t know until you go,” which has led us not only to travel overland in Sumbawa, Indonesia (because he wanted to know why there was not much about it in the guidebook), but also to the incredible group of islands where we got engaged!

On October 18, 2011, in 17 cities across North America, you can learn more about career breaks and extended travel. Despite being common in many countries such as Australia and the UK, career breaks, life sabbaticals, “gap years” and time-spans used to facilitate extended travel, don’t seem to be an American or Canadian birthright…but the Founders of Meet, Plan, Go! are now on a mission to change that!

Every event will feature individuals whom have fulfilled their own dreams of traveling around the world and who appreciate the unbelievable triumphs of realizing one’s dreams through long-term international adventure. Their real-life stories include an understanding of the challenges that long-term travelers must overcome in order to claim their freedom on the road.
