Toronto, August 31, 2010—Travelers who have dreamt of taking a career or education break to see the world but didn’t know where to begin, now have the chance to turn their globetrotting fantasies into reality.
G Adventures (www.gadventures.com) is sponsoring Meet, Plan, Go events— dedicated to inspiring people to embark on long-term trips across the globe—to be held in Toronto and 13 U.S. cities on September 14, 2010. The free sessions provide participants with an opportunity to meet inspirational speakers and like-minded travelers with opportunities to network and organize the necessary resources to set their adventure travel plans in motion.
“Because we love changing people’s lives with our unforgettable adventures, we wanted to work with an organization encouraging people to explore the world,” said G Adventures founder Bruce Poon Tip. “We’re partnering with Meet, Plan, Go to inspire more people to embrace the kind of exotic destinations and exciting cultures that G Adventures travelers have enjoyed for 20 years—and help novice travelers gain the confidence they need to embark on an education or career break.”
Speakers scheduled to share their travel experiences and inspirational stories at the Toronto event include host Janice Waugh, publisher of the popular Solo Traveler blog, Evelyn Hannon, publisher of Journeywoman.com—which offers information and advice about solo travel for women—and Canada’s adventure couple, Dave Bouskill and Debra Corbeil, publishers of thePlanetD.com.
Great speakers at U.S. based events include:
- Seattle, WA: Betsy and Warren Talbot, who run the popular ‘round the world travel blog www.marriedwithluggage.com
- Chicago, IL: Alex and Elizabeth, who left their lives in the U.S. to travel around the world for one year and have since returned home to work and run the blog www.alexandelizabeth.com
- Washington, DC: Stephanie Yoder of the popular blog www.twenty-somethingtravel.com, which chronicles the life of a 25-year-old gearing up for her second long-term travel break
