Travel Happy Hour: June 21 Join us!

 

In the New York Times regular segment, Practical Traveler, Susan Stellin wrote on October 12, 2010 Making the Dream Trip a Reality about Meet Plan Go’s “hosted events in 13 cities, where they answered questions about their (career break) experiences from 1,500 aspiring travelers (in some locations, hundreds more were on a waiting list).”

If you would like to participate in a similar session, this year the events will take place in 17 cities on October 18, 2011. Early bird tickets are available until June 8. Don’t miss out!

Leaving your job, putting down your briefcase, and picking up your backpack is “a dream anyone with a passport fantasizes about once in a while: ditching everything to travel the world for a year, or at least long enough to forget about office life.” If you are ready to learn more by meeting some career break veterans, or perhaps ready to plan a trip, regardless of length, you should get ready to go to our first event in Los Angeles.

Please join us on June 21, 2011 at the WEST Lounge of the Hotel Angeleno. Gather with us to share stories, toast to future travel plans and inspire others to take to the road, especially the paths less visited.

Lisa and George, creators of We Said Go Travel and hosts of the LA Chapter of Meet Plan Go, look forward to meeting you for happy hour drinks and to hear about your journeys past and future. They will speak briefly about Meet Plan Go, upcoming events, how to get involved and their own great travels!

Meet Plan Go: Do you long to escape your cubicle and strike out to discover the world on your own terms? If so, it’s time to take action. Looking for inspiration and ‘how-to’ advice regarding career break planning and travel?

At Meet, Plan, Go! we are leading the career break movement in North America; encouraging and teaching others how to travel the world and have it be beneficial to your career. We envision a world where the term ‘career break’ is a part of your overall career strategy.

We have a dream to get more and more people talking about AND taking traveling career breaks. We aren’t picky – we don’t care how long they are, or where you go. But go you must. Go out and see the world, open up your mind, shake up your perceptions, and get the best education out there…the world’s cultures.

Lisa and George Rajna spent eleven months wandering Southeast Asia from Indonesia to Mongolia where they fell in love, got engaged, and now as a married couple are writing a book about their journey.
