How did you meet in real life?

I was planning a trip to Ottawa, Canada, for the long Thanksgiving Weekend (24-27 Nov 16) and noticed Corie was interested in the trip to the U.S. We started messaging back and forth and agreed to meet up when I got to Ottawa. The first night we went to the Ottawa Senators/Boston Bruins hockey game...the locals won. Corie was gracious enough to spend a good deal of time with me during my visit. She was a perfect host and showed me areas of the city I wouldn't have found myself. If you get the chance to meet Corie you will feel yourself very lucky to make a great new friend! I'm looking forward to seeing her again, and hopefully getting a chance to show her Boston!

Why are you vouching for them?

Corie made my visit to Ottawa even more enjoyable than it would have been. She is a genuinely nice person who was a pleasure to hang out with. This was my first solo travel adventure in a very long time and Corie set the standard for hospitality!!

I was traveling and visiting family in Cocoa Beach Florida for Thanksgiving week. I had been chatting with Cho for a while and told him I would be in the area. I got a chance to get away for a while and drove over to Orlando Florida to meet up with Cho.

Why are you vouching for them?

Cho is a very well traveled guy and all around great person to chat with and exchange stories. He has been to most of the countries I have been and much much more. So we had plenty to talk about. Wish I had more time, but hopefully I will see him around the world in Asia somewhere. ;)

John and I have been exchanging messages on and off the past couple of years. He was at Cocoa Beach in Florida for a reunion with his family during Thanksgiving week and found time to come over to Orlando to meet me and Surubuya.

Why are you vouching for them?

I found John to be quite an interesting fellow, and like he mentioned on his profile, he certainly seems to be a Jack of all trades. We had a good time sharing our travel stories and the TBers we met in person. I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors and hope to meet up again in the future.

I finally had the great pleasure of meeting Dragana in NW China in Oct 2016.
I had read most of Dragana's blogs and viewed her photos and always wanted to meet her so I was excited to learn that we would be traveling together in China.




Why are you vouching for them?

Dragana is an experienced traveler and it was a pleasure to meet and be able to travel with her.
There were 5 of us traveling together so there was always lots to talk about.
We had great fun and it was a pity that Dragana had to eventually leave when we reached Chengdu.
I look forward to traveling with Dragana again as she makes a great travel buddy.

I met Amy when I visited Hong Kong, and then we spent some time together couple of weeks later in Beijing.

Why are you vouching for them?

Amy met with me in Hong Kong and showed me around her city. She was very nice and friendly and took me to some places I wouldn't have found on my own.
We then met again in Beijing and spent couple of days together exploring the city. She is smart, well traveled, very organized, friendly and easy to talk to.
It was a lot of fun, and I hope we get to meet again!
