How did you meet in real life?

We met on the cruise to Antarctica in Feb 2017.
There were 18 of us from TravBuddy.

Why are you vouching for them?

I was happy to see Mike's name appearing on the Antartica meet up list as I had enjoyed reading his blogs and scrolling through his photos.
I was hoping that some day we might meet and there could be no better place to meet than on the way to Antarctica.

When I travel I seem to easily forget a lot of details but Mike has a great memory and seems to easily remember all the places he has been to despite the occasional beer he might have.
It was great listening to Mike's adventures and he is doing what I had only dreamed about.

Have many more adventures Mike, even though you are running out of new countries.
No doubt our paths will cross again.

Safe Travels

When Walter was visiting the Netherlands, we met at Amsterdam. We had a lovely walk together at the oldest part of the town, had coffee in the beautiful Amrath hotel, went for a little shopping in Amsterdam's Chinatown. All in easy pace, no pressure.

Why are you vouching for them?

Walter is interested in a whole lot of things. When we walked at Amsterdam he was in no hurry, and was happy to go where ever our footsteps took us.

Walter is currently having his vacation in the Netherlands.

Why are you vouching for them?

We have corresponded in TB sometime ago. He is here in the Netherlands having his vacation so I met up with him showing him around Haarlem and Amsterdam. He is friendly and we have great time yesterday with another travbuddy Tineke. Walter enjoy the rest of your stay in the Netherlands and have fun.

He contacted me through Travbuddy and we meet in Taksim Square

Why are you vouching for them?

Being my 7th time in Istanbul, it was very difficult that someone could show me something outside the routine. Emre managed to do that brilliantly. He is very smart, open minded, great conversations and trustful guy. Hope to meet him soon, in Istanbul or somewhere in the world! Thanks Emre for the fantastic days :)

I first met Haiza during the Huge TravBuddy meetup in Kuala Lumpur last November 22, 2014. I also traveled with her in Cebu and Bohol during the meetup I organized last April 4-6, 2016.

Most recently we traveled with TravBuddy friends in Siem Reap during the Cambodia meetup last March 4-6, 2017.

Why are you vouching for them?

What struck me when I first met Haiza was that our meeting place was at Batu Caves, (which was not far from where she lived) but that she hadn't visited at all prior to the meetup! Apparently she didn't travel much until recently, and since getting bitten by the travel bug she likes to travel to far off places instead of her own backyard. What I appreciate about her is that she is very flexible and easy to get along with (and convince to join meetups), especially if with our TravBuddy friends.

Haiza is also good at seeking out bargains for trips and promo flights, as she has a knack for noticing things that many people including myself may overlook. We also enjoy the outdoors, especially Mt. Kinabalu which is one of the most surreal experiences climbing up a mountain to catch the sunrise.

As early as now, we (Haiza and other TB friends) are planning more than a year and a half ahead for another epic TravBuddy meetup spanning a week in India. Looking forward to traveling with her again on that trip.

We met up in Pattaya in November 2017.

Why are you vouching for them?

He is a very nice chap. Always up for a laugh and a bit of harmless fun. There's never a dull moment when he's around.
We've meet occasionally in the UK and are planning on meeting up again in Thailand in late 2017. Great fella.

Spent two weeks together in Pattaya.

Why are you vouching for them?

He is a great fella. A super reliable honest chap. Good company and we had some very memorable times together. We have arranged to meet up again in Pattaya in 2017 and we also meet up sometimes for a beer in the UK. A totally sound bloke to spend time with.

Karen came to Adelaide as part of her trip to checkout Australia. As I am a Travel buddy located here in Adelaide and have been treated well by others when travelling, thought it would be nice to give something back to a fellow traveller.

Met Karen (Who is bright and bubbly even with suffering from being slightly jet lagged) at the Airport. Gave her a bit of an orientation and had dinner together before taking her to her couch surfing place. Next day we had an adventure exploring the countryside, going to places like Gorge Wildlife Park (Koalas yeah! eh Karen ).. Morialta Conservation Park .... other locations and Mt Lofty Botanical Gardens (Which unfortunately shut @ 4:00 pm hahaha)
A big day for sure.

Why are you vouching for them?

I am vouching for Karen just to let others know that she a no fuss fun type of person. Easily to get along with & adaptable when things don't quite go to plan ... Hopefully this post will help her during future travelling.
