Hello all 🙂 ,
Welcome to this very late, first edition of 2012 ! I’ve been too caught up in family life & working and so now I’m trying to catch up with many a missed travelling tale/Globetrotter story !!
In this edition we’ve got plenty of club news, including a fantastic trip by long term Globie Gavin Fernandes and plenty of news from Chester & Toronto branches.
Hopefully you’ll find the wait on my slow editorial efforts worth it. In the meantime I will endeavour to get back to a more regular output, so keep those stories & news items coming,
What is happening across the wider travel world ?
