Around The World & Back To Tampa in 3 Hours!

Hey Everyone,

On this past Friday evening I attended a wonderful social with a new group that I just joined called “InterNations”. The group is open to all Internationals in the Tampa/Saint Pete area as well as to Americans that have lived abroad. I was informed about this fun social group from my new friend Emelia from Naples, Italy. The event on Friday was held at a place in Tampa called “Babbaluci Cucina and Lounge”

I thoroughly enjoyed this event and meet so many great people and established so many new contacts. As you know from my previous blogs, I really have a passion for meeting and making friends with Internationals. If I was to do my career all over again I would have been a foreign diplomat or an ambassador. Attending this event on Friday evening was the closest thing to being in that profession!

There were a total of 98 people in attendance from 32 countries as listed below:

Albania

Argentina

Barbados

Belgium

Belize

Brazil

Canada

Columbia

Costa Rica

Ecuador

Egypt

El Salvador

France

French Guiana

Germany

Guatemala

India

Italy

Kosovo

Lithuania

Peru

Poland

Puerto Rico

Russia

South Korea

Taiwan

Turkey

UK

USA

Venzuelia

Vietnam

Virgin Islands

So as you can see from the above, it felt like I traveled all around the world on Fridday evening in just 3 hours!

Really looking forward to the next event and being an active member within this fun group!

Have a great week!

  1. Wow, what a fun crowd! A fun place, too, with live music and a robo-Einstein – very funny! As we are planning a trip to Tampa – St Pete soon, I’ll be sure to look this place up.
    I see that Marco and Rosario joined you in that event. Happy to see you having such an active social life with friends by your side, Gary!

    • Thanks Dolly. Let me know when you finalize your plans for a visit to Tampa/St Pete. I’ll be happy to help you with places to go and things to see.Don’t know if you have arranged accomodations, but if interested there are 6 fully equipped RV s for rent on MacDilk (each can accommodate 6 people) and all you need to bring is your own towels and toiletries. They run 65 to 75 per night and are walking distance to private beach
      You can rent one for up to 2 weeks max and I can sponsor you and check availability and reserve one for you if interested. All I would need is you arrival and departure date. Just let me know.
