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 need is the desire to travel and be willing to share your adventures with us. That's it!          Join us at our next event!
