London Meeting, Saturday, May 11th 2019

Speaking this month we have:

1st. Will Linsdell – The Road to Damascus

Approximately two years before the start of the devastating conflict that has broken the Middle Eastern country’s spirit, Will travelled by train from Istanbul to Syria.

In 2009 Will found a country filled with extremely hospitable & seemingly very contented people, together with majestic ancient cities, incredible Roman ruins and well-preserved crusader castles.

Hear about Will’s life affirming epic trip, the colourful locals he encountered and the spellbinding sights he experienced as he takes you on a journey uncovering eight thousand years of history and also take time to reflect on the travesties that have occurred there over the past eight years.

2nd: Lindy Pyrah – Overland through Scandinavia

Globetrotter member Lindy will talk about her overland trip through Scandinavia which she undertook in the summer of 2017; starting in London on the Eurostar she explored the countries overland by trains and ferries, uncovering amazing landscapes, dined at some interesting restaurants in remote places (Noma, Fäviken and Kok’s) and came away with a love for the area.

The previously advertised talk by Oliver Dowson has had to be postponed

Admission costs, we charge a small cash fee of £3 for Globetrotters members and £6 for non-members on the door to cover our expenses, tea/coffee and biscuits are included free in the interval between the talks.
