Travel Tales will be meeting by Zoom at monthly intervals for the Spring and Summer terms.
We are looking forward to hearing about Mary Cantrille's memories of "Yellowstone Park in Winter". Hopefully we will also see some of her wonderful photos too. Mary will be talking to our Travel Tales group on Monday 24th May at 3pm. Please contact Jackie Cape (details in the newsletter, or email at the bottom of this page) if you wish to be sent the zoom invitation.
Travel Tales is a thriving group where members are invited to share their travel memories with others.
We have been meeting as a Zoom Group during lockdown - at 3pm on the fourth Monday of each month - and these sessions have lasted up to an hour.
Recent talks have included a very entertaining talk by Ian Blaby whose title was Deep Freezing Your Wife - where he focussed on cold places such as The Harbin Ice Festival. the Franz Josef Glacier in New Zealand and dog sledding in Canada. Chris Knight gave us a fascinating insight into Bhutan with photos and videos and Jane Huff also shared wonderful photos and videos connected to her school trips in Iceland. Our last talk was on Cuba by Joy Wallis.
We hope in the future (no definite dates as yet) to have speakers sharing their memories of Yellowstone Park, Rome, Nigeria, Gallipoli and Walking and cruising in The Caribbean.
In addition, some of our previous speakers have been "persuaded" to repeat their earlier and memorable talks from the last few years.
We are always seeking new speakers - help is always on hand to assist with photos etc - so please do contact me should you (or somebody outside of the U3A) be willing to give an (unpaid) talk. Talks do not have to be "all-singing and all-dancing" so please do not see potential technological problems as a hindrance to you volunteering!!
Spaces are currently available for new members but please contact the Group Leader first.
We get the opportunity to share, enjoy and learn about the travel experiences of fellow-members; and gain a deeper insight to places we have been to or would love to still visit.
Do come and join us.
Anyone wishing to join us should email or telephone Jackie Cape (Travel Tales Group Leader) to receive a Zoom invitation. telephone number in the Newsletter or
