San Diego’s premiere walking group

Founder Larry Forman leading a walk along La Jolla Shores

Walkabout’s intention is for all to have a positive, safe experience while enjoying a walk. Our walks provide an opportunity for exercise and social connections where you can talk to different people as you walk along, or just have the company of other walkers if you prefer not to talk.

Membership is never required to participate in any Walkabout walk. Legal criteria requires you to be a Member for most trips and overnight events. 

Learn more about us while you enjoy our website and join us for a walk when possible.


Tuesday, October 10th at 10:30 a.m.
Zoom meeting invitations will be sent via WalkaBlast
before the meeting. If you have any concerns you
think the Board should address, please send your
questions/suggestions to Elaine and she will see that
they are added to the agenda for the meeting.

Its Free

Its Fun


Elaine Berger, President

Already September-the days are getting noticeably shorter, in person school classes are back in session, football season is just about here, and Padres fans suffer. The days are warm, and it is always a great time to get out and enjoy the beaches and parks in San Diego.

This month gives a new urgency to Walkabout as we plan to leave our office at the end of the year. This is where we need all of our members to give us a helping hand. As you well know, our office is filled with much “stuff” that has to be removed. While we would like to sell as much as possible, the reality is that we may need to either donate items or discard them. If you are part of any organization that might be able to use or knows of someone who can use these items, please let us know (I am thinking of office supplies to a school). There are 5 glass topped desks that originally came from the Hotel Del that could also be used as tables by an organization settling refugees in temporary housing. If you have contact with any historical societies or museums, we have many items they might want (ex., photo albums, proclamations, newspaper articles). We do not plan to store any items, so please help us give some of this “stuff” a new home.

Unfortunately, our “Lifeline” message to our members did not result in anyone stepping up to join the Board of Directors. I understand that right now is not a great time to join the Board. The hope was that new members might be able to come up with a way to continue to operate under reduced circumstances. Clearly that is not going to happen. Thanks to those generous folks who made a contribution to Walkabout.

Month At A Glance

Welcome Aboard
Oct 7-14, 2023

As travel restrictions are easing, Walkabout International is looking at ways to again add more excitement to our walks by designing a variety of both local and international walks. 

One event that we are excited to tell you about is a CROATIAN CRUISE along the Dalmatian Coast. We have blocked ten cabins on a small cruise vessel that only has 18 luxury cabins. We already have deposits on five cabins, which include some walk leaders. The trip begin in Dubrovnik, Croatia on 7 October 2023 and end in Split, Croatia on 14 October. 

Our cruise includes airport pick-up and dropoff at the vessel, your luxury cabin, meals, and sightseeing. All cabins on upper and lower deck have wonderful ocean views. 

2023 seems a long way off, but it’s just around the corner. People are “on the move again” and many tours and cruises into 2023 are already booked out, so we have chosen one of the best months to cruise and sight-see in Croatia.


 We are using a well-known small-ship cruise line, Zantium Cruises. With just 18 cabins onboard, we will be spoiled by our 8-person crew as we enjoy the scenery, delicious meals, island exploring, and so many extras added. 

We will be responsible for our own air arrangements which allows us to use airline points, our favorite airline and add before/after accommodation, if we individually wish. 

Our cruise has been booked through Viaggio European Tours, who specializes in European walking/sightseeing small-group touring. For full details, www.viaggio-tours.com. On the front page, click “Croatia 2023,” then “M/V New Star.” 

An optional Walking Tour is available at the end of the cruise. Details on this 3 day land-based tour can be viewed at www.viaggio tours.com/extension.

If you have any questions, please text/call our Walkabout Board Member, Carole Ericson at 858- 829-1282. To reserve a cabin, a deposit of $500 per person is required. To reserve your cabin, go to https://www.viaggio-tours.com/contact-us and fill in your information; you will be emailed a reservation form. As this cruise has been booked directly with the cruise line, we are able to invite non-Walkabouter friends and relatives to also join us. An added bonus!
