It was a great time for everyone! Christine and I are proud to be the hosts for the 2011 Meet Plan Go extravaganza this October. This past week, we hosted a Meet Plan Go get together at Paddy Coyne’s in South Lake Union. It was a really fun evening and had almost 30 people show up! – not bad!! Meet, Plan, Go! founders Michaela Plotter and Sherry Ott were even on hand to celebrate the travel wishes and plans of those who attended.
Meet, Plan, Go! (MPG) is a wonderful website that brings together people with an interest in travel. Those who have travelled the world, those who are planning to travel, and those who have no idea if they can but it sounds cool. MPG is leading the career break movement in North America; encouraging and teaching others how to travel the world and have it be beneficial to your career. They envision a world where the term ‘career break’ is a part of everyone’s overall career strategy.
We saw those whom we already knew – Andy Hayes from andyhayes.com, Beth from Wanderlustandlipstick.com, Chris from Chrisaroundtheworld.com and Deb from Winedivadeb.com. And we met some great new folks, including – Anne from Sailingvagabond.com and Jennifer, and Brandon and Elizatbeth – who are beginning their career break this October 2011. There were so many inspiring stories and we were so excited to be able to hear each of them and follow them on their travel blogs. We talked with so many great people and we’re looking forward to learning more about you in the future.
There were so many great people there and we’re looking forward to seeing them again, either in person or following them on their travel blogs.
This get together was the first in a series that will culminate with the National Meet, Plan, Go! Seattle extravaganza this coming October 18th at the Flagship REI store in downtown Seattle. It will be an evening of inspiring stories and sharing experiences of travel, and helping those who want to create their own long term travel plans.

Thank you everyone for attending, it sounds cliche, but we couldn’t do it without you. We’re looking forward to seeing you again and following your travel stories and lives on the road.
