Powell River Free-at-55 Travel Club

NEXT MEETINGS:

Time:  Saturday 23 September, 2017 at 19:00–22:00
Place:  Powell River (RSVP for address)

Topic:  Volunteering as a way to see the world! (Rescheduled from June)

Being retired leaves us lots of time and space to do the things we want to do. Many people see retirement as a time for giving back- and look to offer their skills and wisdom in volunteer opportunities. How do you find a volunteer position that matches your needs? Where do I look for opportunities that meet my needs? What are the ups and downs of volunteering abroad?
Our presenter, Mary Morgan, has worked in international development all her professional life. Check out her website at: http://EconomicsUnplugged.com/
And of course, the usual laughter, nibbles, and good conversation. To receive directions, please let us know you’re coming and anyone else coming with you.  Address will be sent out the week before once we know how many are coming.  Thanks. See you soon.

GROUP DESCRIPTION

If you’re retired, partly retired, nearly retired, or just don’t like working – and interested in adventure or cultural travel – this group may be for you. We plan to meet informally around various travel-related themes, swap stories and share tips, and perhaps find kindred spirits to travel with.

Topics we hope to address include adventure travel, Airbnb, agriturismo, birdwatching tours, blogging, canal boats, cheap travel, choral holidays, cooking holidays, Couchsurfing, culture travel, cycle tours, Earthwatch, exotic road trips, genealogy travel, home exchanges, hostels, housesitting, intentional communities, language-learning holidays, living overseas, low cost travel, organizing group travel, packing light, photography tours, repositioning cruises, safaris, sailing excursions, senior nomads, solo women travelers, snorkel trips, Servas Open Doors, small group tours, teaching English, train journeys, travel fitness, travel medical, trekking, villas, walking tours, yoga retreats, and whatever else interests members.

We plan initially to meet in small informal groups in organizers’ and members’ homes. As membership grows, we may hold larger events in public venues.

Please invite others to the group if you know they would be interested. Interested parties who don’t use Facebook can email Paul at paul@miniato.net .
