Calling all travelers: Rookies, Veterans and Dreamers

Do you long to escape your cubicle and strike out to discover the world on your own terms? If so, it’s time to take action. Looking for inspiration and ‘how-to’ advice regarding career break planning and travel? At Meet, Plan, Go! we are 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. We envision a world where the term ‘career break’ is a part of your overall career strategy.

Gather with us at Traveler’s Bookcase to share stories, toast to future travel plans and inspire others to take to the road especially the one less traveled.

Lisa and George Rajna of We Said Go Travel and hosts of Meet Plan Go! Los Angeles will talk about their travels and how to make it happen!

Travel author, Rachel Friedman - The Good Girl’s Guide to Getting Lost: A Memoir of Three Continents, Two Friends, and One Unexpected Adventure- is flying in from New York City for the FIRST West Coast reading of her book! Meet her and hear about her journeys from the road past and plans for the future.

Rachel Friedman’s life was as neat, orderly and structured as any high-achieving, parent-pleasing college student when she suddenly decided to abandon the American mantra of “go to school, get good grades, get a job.” A perennial good girl who unexpectedly finds that her carefully calibrated life plans no longer inspire her, she makes a series of life- changing decisions – first dropping out of music school and then off the beaten path altogether – and finds a world of adventure across Ireland, Australia and South America.

We look forward to hearing your travel stories and travel dreams. Come meet other travelers and wanderers to share stories from the road and go travel!
