May 10, 2010 marked the 6-month anniversary of the DCtravel happy hours which continue to bring together dozens of travelers, bloggers, tweeters, and curious Washington, DC-area residents.

This past Monday’s event was held once again at The Big Hunt in Dupont Circle.  We camped out on the rooftop deck, enjoying a few beers.  As usual, conversation revolved around travel, blogging, and social media.

I speak for everyone when I saw we were excited to have Bruce Poon Tip, founder of GAP Adventures, join us this time.  As Carolyn later said, he was very generous with his time.  And, I’d like to add very down to Earth and sincere, which is exactly the impression he gives us on Twitter every day.


And once again a special thanks to Melanie @sisarina for the Twitter name tags we continue to enjoy.
