Retired Austin Travelers

Who We Are...

As our name clearly implies, we are a group of (mostly) retired folks (singles and couples) who live in and around the Austin area.  We all share a love for the Adventures of Travel.
      However, being retired is not required to join in the fun.  All you will need is the desire to travel and to be willing to share your travel adventures with the rest of us.  That's it!  We hope to see you at our next event!
