Our purpose is to allow members to meet like-minded travellers and suggest potential holiday destinations, which can be in the UK or overseas and for any duration and at any time of the year. However, note that we do not all travel together but rather in small groups (although there is no limit on minimum or maximum numbers) which gives individuals the opportunity to participate in more than one holiday if they wish.
In the first few meetings of the new session we discuss the holiday destinations which have been suggested until an initial commitment is requested from members to establish which holidays will go forward for further discussion and potentially into the booking process and which will be discarded or, as sometimes happens, held over for further discussion to the following year. We also welcome any feedback or travel advice about the holidays undertaken during the previous year or from any members’ holidays taken outwith the U3A.
Holiday destinations booked for 2019 are :
12 members to North Wales in May
4 members to Cornwall in June
4 members to Krakow in August
7 members to the Scottish Islands at end of August/beginning of September
3 members to Croatia in October
Trips to the Isle of Man and the South of France have already been suggested for 2020.
As well as discussing new holiday destinations, members are encouraged to talk about their own personal holiday destinations and offer any suggestions, recommendations and travel tips as well as giving feedback from the Travel Group holidays. This year, one of the members gave two very interesting slide shows from personal travels both of which were very well received by members.
