In autumn and winter the group meets at Wallace House to hear travel stories. These illustrated talks may cover the far flung and exotic but also places nearer to home. During the summer months we enjoy outings to local places of interest such as an organic farm, a nature reserve or even a distillery.
Although travel can be difficult right now it is still possible to see the world. Virtual Trips has livestream tours from all over the world. It's free with the option to tip your guide.
New members are very welcome.
If you have a travel experience you would like to share we would love to hear from you. Just contact John Boon
Chile is a narrow country on the west coast of South America stretching from the hot dry Atacama Desert in the north 2600 miles south to the cold Antarctic region at the southern tip of the continent. With a population of about 19 million, Chile is a prosperous and modern country. You may recall the news story ten years ago about the rescue of 33 trapped miners in a gold and copper mine in the north of the country.
Chile welcomes tourists and a few years ago John Boon went on a three week bird watching adventure in a small party of folk and explored the country from "Top to Bottom". While we cannot meet in person John shares these tales of his travels in a series of 12 narrated slide shows. There is something here to interest everyone whether you are a bird watcher or not!
