Think back to the first time the dream of extended travel entered your head. You probably still get butterflies remembering the anticipation and excitement of leaving life as you knew it behind to explore far-flung parts of the world.

But preparing for a career break or extended travel adventure has its own unique obstacles. Did your friends, family and colleagues share your excitement? Did you have doubts of your own? Of course you did…but you are someone who tackled those obstacles and doubts; forging ahead to make your travels a reality.

Now we want YOU to join us in a movement to inspire other would-be wanderers to fulfill their long-term travel dreams!

On Tuesday, October 16, 2012, Meet, Plan, Go! will hold its third nationwide conversation about career breaks and extended travel. These events will be held around the country and offer inspiration and resources to people looking to craft their own life-changing getaway. We are now looking for experienced travelers to host the October event in cities across North America for the Meet, Plan, Go! brand.


Over the past two years these events have opened up a wider conversation about long-term travel experiences for audiences all over the country. And thousands of people said they wanted to learn more about contemplating and how to plan for extended travel.

In a time when the majority of our conversations are becoming digital, and there is an overload of information to sort through online; Meet, Plan, Go! takes a step back in time and brings back the idea of face to face interactions.
