The long awaited Fort Lauderdale Travbuddy meet-up is finally here: our charming, vibrant and classy host Joanne (Flyinhigh) made it all worth while, exciting, and something to remember among all travbuddy meet-ups to come. The choice of YOLO (You Only Live Once) was Robert's idea and definitely one to give a thumbs-up to as it turned out to be a classy restaurant and bar with five star services. The meet-up was scheduled for 5:30 p.m. so we got out of the house early enough to give us a head start.  We were to meet at the bar from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. then dine at 6:30 p.m. within the same location. Joanne pulled up the directions on Google and soon we were on our way: we arrived ahead of time and decided to valet park the car for easier retrieval later in the night. We had a confirmed list of ten on travbuddy forum but not all who confirmed showed, a few sent in last minute cancellations like JR who we missed. In attendance were; Joanne (www.travbuddy.com/Flyinhigh), Harriet (www.travbuddy.com/Africancrab), Alarick (www.travbuddy.com/AlarickT), Stephanie (www.travbuddy.com/JerseysFinest77) and her sister, Robert (www.travbuddy.com/rvegas), Maria (www.travbuddy.com/Miamimaria), Yoko (www.travbuddy.com/globe-hippie), Julian (www.travbuddy.com/jmoreno3)

My favourite meet-up so far . . . if you did not make it, you missed out. Till next time:)

Happy viewing . . .

Cool! If it hadn't been right between the Chicago & MN State Fair meet-ups, I would've tried to go to this one! Hopefully there'll be another. :)
