Possible Belize bums: Julz-Erin-Mel-Me-Wendy (Joy pic)






Saturday evening, May 17, was a manic night in Marina Del Rey, California. At least 35 TravBuddies and friends ate, drank, laughed, posed and partied up and down Washington Blvd. This is my ninth TravBuddy shindig and it’s the first time I’ve had the opportunity to return to the same area.


These are 35 of the terrific pals who attended the Los Angeles TravBuddy Meetup:

After spending the day relaxing on the coast, I met up with the gang in marvelous Marina Del Rey at C&O Trattoria, just a couple of blocks from the Pacific Ocean. Being near the sea always gives me a thrill (what do you expect from a landlocked Kansan?) Four of our possible October Belize beach bums: Julz, Erin, Wendy and myself, plus Melanie (potential prize recruit) posed outside the restaurant. In the lyrics of Jerry Jeff Walker, come away to Belize with us!!


Soon, Eric, Lisa and Ryan showed up. Ryan, Eric and I attended the first TravBuddy meetup in Bunratty, Ireland September 2007.


We broke up into smaller groups for dinner. I was blessed to chew and chat with Reese, Belinda, Eric, Lisa, Ryan, Jen and Stephen.  We had a nice mix of four meetup vets and four newbies. A spendid time was had by all.
