I've been fortunate to meet other members on the site in Vancouver, Montreal and NYC, and I know other meetups have happened. I wondered if perhaps a community-wiki type list by continent and city for anyone who would be keen to meet for a coffee would be a useful idea? You may be passing through a city and have no idea user X lives there, who could show you around or give you a great tip.

I thought I'd create an answer and people can edit the answer, rather than have a thousand teeny unordered answers.

As for contacting, I guess an @tag is handy, but the chat is another good go to place to organise.

    Would we not be better off more widely publicising the Facebook group? – Gagravarr Jan 1 '14 at 6:13
  • @Gagravarr I wondered about that, but there's no easy way I know of to have a big note in there to show where everyone is? – Mark Mayo Jan 1 '14 at 11:02
  • Is there any way to merge/share this wiki answer with expat.se -- would seem like there might useful overlap there if the idea is meeting other people, particularly since ex-pat (if they're interested) are often a pretty good resource for visitors. – SpaceDog Apr 4 '14 at 13:05
  • @SpaceDog not really, unfortunately. You could post a meta post there with a link to the travel one, which would potentially get some traction and some more connections across the two sites. – Mark Mayo Apr 4 '14 at 14:03
  • @Gagravarr fascinating. Didn't even know there was a Facebook group till I just saw your comment. Been using travel.se for years now... ! – Andrew Ferrier Jan 19 '15 at 14:49

    Another option might be to consider adding TripIt IDs (I've added mine). I find this a pretty good way to find when/where colleagues are going. (Personally, I use TripIt Pro too for a lot of my business travel, but that's getting off topic...) – Andrew Ferrier Jan 19 '15 at 15:43

    I'm somewhat ambivalent about this. I see two things wrong here - a. I don't know if the people concerned are ok with it or not b. How do you trust strangers when many of them do not even have their photo on travel SE. A meeting on meetup.com or something similar could be a game-changer of course. something which is similar to tripadvisor as well perhaps. – shirish Dec 15 '16 at 17:45

    @shirish many of us have met up already and it's been great. Meet in a public place and be safe :) – Mark Mayo Dec 20 '16 at 10:43

    If you don't trust, you don't put your name in it. Why don't you know if I'm OK with it? If I weren't, you wouldn't see my name. Of course I will make an individual decision should someone ask to meet. – WGroleau Mar 25 '17 at 22:23
  • @Gagravarr I've edited this to clean up the list of people "near London". If I misinterpreted either of your intentions with regards to your willingness to meet actually in London, feel free to edit it to better reflect :) – Muzer Dec 30 '19 at 14:31
  • @Aleks-G See above comment – Muzer Dec 30 '19 at 14:31
  • @Muzer no problem. – Aleks G Dec 30 '19 at 14:43
  • Is it possible to make this question and answer only readable by people who have joined Travel.SE? Hopefully we’re all sufficiently civilized to not put someone else’s name in. (I don’t remember putting myself in it, but I need to either change it now to the correct location or remove it. – WGroleau Dec 30 '19 at 17:23
