TravelBlog Christmas get-togethers for 2013

Celebrate the festive season with fellow members of the TravelBlog community!
5 years ago, November 18th 2013 No: 1 Msg: #177194  
With Christmas fast approaching, it is the time to consider and organise our traditional Christmas get-togethers within the TravelBlog community!

We're looking for TBers who are able to host a casual meetup that will allow members to celebrate the Christmas season wherever they are in the world - and to share travel stories and comradeship amongst the Christmas cheer.

All you need to do to be a contact is to decide a date and time which suits (close to Christmas preferably), and make a restaurant booking or organise an alternate location. Some people are busy on Christmas Eve and Day but are available the week before or even up to the first week of the new year.

If this sounds like you, just post below which city you'll be in and we'll add you to the list.

For anyone interested in attending one of these casual Christamas festivities, just send a private message to the person listed as the contact for the city you'll be in, and they'll let you know the details.

Whether you have been a member for a one month, one year or one decade - this invitation includes you - so don't be shy!

If you post a message in this thread, details of the function and contact person will be listed just below.

I'll be in Bangkok for the holidays. (And probably actually working on Xmas.) Not sure how much organizing I can do, per say, but I'd love to be part of a get-together and I'm happy to help organize! Reply to this

San Francisco-
There are a few of us travel bloggers who get together rather regularly. In the past we have invited other travel bloggers but as of the past 3 years no one else has shown up.

If you live in SF or will be in the area around the holiday and would like to join us please message me and I will give you our details. Reply to this

Around the Christmas / New Year period I'll be firstly in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, followed by Hargeisa in Somaliland (Northern Somalia).

Wouldn't expect to see any bloggers in Hargeisa, but I might get lucky with Addis Ababa! Reply to this
