Travel Massive returned to Bristol in the UK on May 22 at Runway East co-work/office space. It was our first Bristol meet-up in over 4 years! It's great to be back.

Runway East (runwayea.st) kindly sponsored the event with some free drinks & pizza. They offer the perfect combination of flexible & modern working space solutions and an amazing, fun community of co-workers.

It was a bit of a leap of faith setting up the event (after 4 years of hiatus) — but luckily quite a few Travel Massive members turned up! There were around 15 of us, and everyone seemed to enjoy the opportunity to reconnect. We had members from local tour operators such as Inside Travel Group (insidetravelgroup.com) and Sawdays (www.sawdays.co.uk), and some travel writers and content creators.

The two talks were focused on sustainability and delivered by Ben Lynam from the Travel Foundation (www.thetravelfoundation.org.uk) and Hannah Cox from the Better Business Network (thebetterbusiness.network). Ben spoke about the importance of facing the hard truths of the environmental impact of travel, and Hannah told us her story of travelling overland from Denmark to Bhutan to discover what makes them two of the happiest nations on Earth.

Big thank you to Runway East, Ben Lynam from the Travel Foundation and Hannah Cox. And thank you for Dan Beaumont and Heather Cowper for your help in organising and hosting!
