What makes traveling with UC Retirees Travel more fun? It's "group" travel, with travelers who have something in common: UC Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, Merced, Riverside, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz. And their friends and family! We use a Get to Know You form to help our travelers discover hobbies and interests in common. And sometimes we find former colleagues as well. I was picking up my luggage in Austria when someone recognized me from the halls of UCLA Ronald Reagan Hospital. Wow!

Please join me and the rest of our terrific, personable UC Retirees escorts on one of our great adventures in travel.

My fellow UC escort Vickie Leow has a great piece about Seeing the World as a Solo Traveler. Don't miss her great advice!
