Resources for Solo Travelers to Meet People on the Road

People are traveling solo more than ever. What do you do when you don't want to join a bus tour with a large group of people and be trapped by a regimented itinerary? Enter drop-in groups that allow you to meet up at your convenience without committing a huge amount of cash or time. These include Airbnb Experiences, Meetup, and Facebook groups (Couchsurfing, Girls Love Travel, Wanderful/ Women in Travel).
