Chester Meetings, Saturday 19th November 2022

Speaking in Chester in November we have:

  • “On the Road Again” speakers: Hanna Bastiaansen and Kevin Jones
  • “Round the Horn of Africa” Speaker: David Redford

Hanna Bastiaansen and Kevin Jones

Over the years we have travelled far and wide not only to other countries, whilst starting the Chester Globetrotters Travel Group from 2009,  but also in our faithful 1986 Syncro VW camper covering much of Europe and beyond,  including Turkey and the former Eastern block countries right up to North Cape in the Norwegian arctic circle. After so many miles and with a two year restoration of the VW plus  a two year Pandemic delay we are finally off to visit Europe again including the Hanseatic trading cities on our way to spend  the Mid-Summer in Sweden, famous for its celebrations and historical significance for Europe  … at least that was the plan … so what happened to us?

David Redford
