January, 2018:

Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen
by
Angela & Gary Obery

Denmark is said to be the happiest country on earth… and the Obery Family knows why. From historic sites to amazing parks, the city of Copenhagen offers everyday fun for the whole family. Gary, Angela and sons lived like Danes for several weeks in both 2010 and 2015. They traveled the city by bike and on foot, exploring Tivoli, the Climbing Forest, the Viking Ship Museum, the King’s Garden and much, much more.


February, 2018:

Surprising Singapore
by
Dick and Jane Groff

Discover the prosperous, vibrant but paternalistic city-state of Singapore, a dynamic blend of Asian and Western cultures.  Experience the historic British Colonial center and the Chinese, Indian and Muslim quarters.  See the fabulous holiday lights where the world goes shopping on Orchard Road.  Visit the Botanical Gardens with the world's largest collection of orchids, and the new Garden by the Bay, with its award-winning conservatories and futuristic "super-trees," and rise above it all in the "Singapore Flyer."


March, 2018:

Nepal: Before Tragedy
by
Steve and Toby Rhine

Two weeks after we returned from Nepal, the earthquake struck and demolished many of the fantastic cultural sites that we had seen. We’ll share pictures and stories of our travels through Kathmandu, Pokhara, and our trek around the Annapurna range.

Magic Patagonia: Enticing Lands at the End of the Earth
by
Eric Schuman

Join club member Eric Schuman as he takes you on a visit to southern Chile and Argentina.  See rheas, guanaco, and colorful vistas at Torres del Paine –South America's most spectacular national park.  Visit two breathtaking glaciers, and laugh at Eric as he stumbles at a tango lesson in Buenos Aires – then discovers himself in the middle of a political demonstration in a crowd of 500,000 protesters.  (Note: he survived.)


May, 2018:

France: Normandy to the Riviera
by
Doug & Nancy Fisher

Join Doug and Nancy Fisher for an extensive tour of the beauties of France.  Starting in Normandy, see the "tapestry town" of Bayeux and the nearby historic D-day beaches, the American and German cemeteries and iconic Mont Saint-Michel.  Then it's on to the fabled Loire Valley, land of elegant, quintessentially French chateaux and gardens.  Tour the less visited Dordogne region, home of cliff dwellings and prehistoric cave paintings.  Continue to the fabled Riviera at Villefranche-sur-Mer, experience the French Alps at Annecy, and end your tour with the delights of Paris.
