My friend Wayne asked me recently why I travel so much and if I do not miss my family. I thought of many reasons why, hundreds of reasons why, and I came down to the same answer I always give people who ask me this question: "I travel to learn and grow, to challenge myself, to see what my  limits are  and to appreciate what I have waiting at home for me when I return from my journeys". Why do you travel? I do hope your reasons are not too far fetched, because the reason I want to meet you today, tomorrow, in the future, is because you add something to my semblance of life. Why Travbuddies? They share a common passion, that of travel. They share a common knowledge, that of making plans to go places (exposure), and they share a common spirit, that of adventure: they are called Travbuddies. We will have a meet-up in the capital of Arizona - Phoenix on October 23 and 24, 2009, if you are not on this list, you may want to consider making plans to join us, we will be having such a fun get-together with some of the most exciting Travbuddies. This is an open meet-up, you are all invited. Here are the confirmed, brave, exciting and spontaneous Travbuddies who are coming to the Phoenix/ Scottsdale meet-up:

He, who does not travel, does not know the value of men. He misses out on watching from faraway places the people that he ignores at home. Here is a favourite quote of mine from Mark Twain: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor.

I shall write more on some of the activities including a visit to the Botanical gardens. Scottsdale is a great place for the art lover, old town scottsdale has great art gallaries as shown in my blog.  Sadly Joanne (Flyinhigh) will nolonger be coming to the Phoenix meet-up, so one person out. I hope she changes her mind:)

 

Do not find a reason to stay at home, the upcoming Aloha Phoenix meet-up is a perfect reason to leavehome, come join us.
