Welcome to Budget Backpacking for All Ages Meetup!
In this next meet up, our guest speaker, Gloria Jackson, will be doing a talk on budget backpacking for all ages. This presentation is going to be amazing because Gloria is in her 60s and she has no sign of stopping! She proves that there is no excuse to following your dreams and seeing the world.
Here is a quick bio and speech description from Gloria:
“I have been a freelance travel writer forever -sometimes very active, sometimes not so much. I have been fortunate to have lived in S.E. Asia, Africa, Europe, Middle East and Caribbean, and I have traveled to over 70 countries. I wrote my first book about a 7 month experience doing volunteer work in Africa. My second book is a lighthearted look at life as an expat it the Bahamas. Since my divorce I have decided my preferred method of travel is to backpack – kind of back to my roots. I am now doing a series of books “I Talked to Strangers in….”. They are in a journal format, where I went, what I did, what everything cost etc. I love the challenge of doing the things people do on tours – only doing it on my time, and figuring out how to do it on a budget. Blogging is new to me in the past year, and my goal for this year is to make improvements in that area. I would love to do a talk on “Budget Backpacking – for any age, as my tips are really not age specific. I would speak about planning, budgeting, what to take, accommodation and transportation. As I travel I ask travelers I meet to share their best travel advise.”
I will also be providing everyone with current travel deals as well as travel hacking information that complements Gloria’s presentation.
Go ahead and RSVP if you plan on attending. See you all there!
