Travel Conversation Circle, or the NJABCTCC
The whimsically named Not-Just-Another-Book-Club Travel Conversation Circle (NJABCTCC) was inaugurated by F.O.L.K. at the Kona Library in 2016 to provide an opportunity for members of the community to share travel experiences, questions and ideas. Unlike other travel discussion groups, this is most definitely not a book club driven by reading a particular travel book or a guest-speaker program. Instead it has become a vibrant and enjoyable monthly conversation circle, meeting one Saturday morning a month from October to June for two hours, sharing experiences, highlights of recent trips, exciting destinations (and some better to avoid). Some of our regulars have travel industry experience which they freely and generously share, while others simply enjoy the excitement of talking about their travels. Some travel only rarely, others seemingly almost constantly. And some simply enjoy hearing others describe their exotic travel adventures.
We include references to current library travel-related materials, the latest internet and computer resources for everything from making reservations to researching obscure travel tidbits, personal travel experiences – both recent trips and upcoming adventures in the planning stage – and getting answers to most any travel-related questions. Travel Circlers have been all over the globe, from adjacent islands to some of the most obscure corners of the world and include visits to most every country. Our e-mail list keeps growing and provides notifications of each upcoming meeting and occasional reports on what transpired at the last meeting; you can join the e-mail list by sending a message to: TravelCircle@folkhawaii.com.
