The Worldwide Foreign Travel Club was created by Charlie Jacobson in 2008. The club provides a forum to share experiences of other cultures and customs from around the world.  A dynamic, member-driven club, we are loosely guided by a volunteer steering committee.  Meetings reflect the generous donations of time and memories from members who share their experiences with each other and with any residents who wish to attend.

Our mission is to promote understanding and appreciation of the world outside the United States.


  • To encourage Villagers to broaden their horizons and explore different countries and cultures.
  • To provide a forum for members to share information, pictures and memorabilia from our varied travel experiences.
  • To exchange unbiased, noncommercial information about our personal experiences with various airlines, hotels, tour operators, etc.
