London Meeting, Saturday, November 6, 2021

Speaking this month we have:

1st Helen Crisp – Madrid – Midnight City

Helen Crisp relates the story of a city and its people through the centuries, with a nod to well-known attractions and sights, as well as hidden gems.

Madrid is Spain’s art capital, with its ‘Golden Triangle’ of museums and myriad art galleries, Madrid is also a city of dazzling nightlife, with a profusion of cafés and bars.

Spain’s top city for tourism, Madrid attracts more than six million visitors a year. This is the story of a vibrant, energetic city, one that remains an enigma to many outsiders.

2nd Neil FoulksRoad Trip New Zealand

“If you’ve got money, your health and time, then do it. New Zealand is the best place in the world.”

That was the advice given to Neil by that famous overlanding Yorkshireman Ian Coates. Full of enthusiasm he quit his job and set off just 3 weeks after The Overland Event 2017. Neil then spent 6,000 kilometres travelling around both of New Zealand’s islands.
