Local meet-ups connect like-minded Seattle travelers


Sports is the usual topic of conversation at the Pyramid Alehouse across from Seattle’s Safeco Field, but once a month, the talk was all about travel.

I recently joined nearly 100 others who showed up to share beers and conversation at the Seattle Adventure Travel Club’s monthly meet-up. Most of us were strangers, but after a round of quick introductions (“Hi, I’m Joe. I’d like to get to Siberia soon”), we were trading travel stories, exchanging email addresses and seeking advice with the same ease and enthusiasm that travelers connect with each other while on the road.

Whether you’re interested in just talking travel or looking for potential traveling partners, it’s never been easier to connect locally with like-minded people. For some ideas, see my Travel Wise column in this week's Seattle Times
