Speaking this month we have:
- Graham Hoskins – An Amazing, Life Changing Travel Adventure in Just Two Weeks?
Graham Hoskins has made it his business to find life changing travel adventures by motorbike that he can do in just two weeks. From Russia, to the Middle East, Africa and all over Europe, he has ridden many thousands of miles in search of his dreams. He tells the stories of the adventures using the films he made and hopes to inspire others to explore the world in short bursts!For details of the ‘Motorbike Diaries’ adventure documentary TV series’s, please visit: www.motorbikediaries.co.uk
- Jacqui Trotter – Japan – three weeks in cherry blossom season
Jacqui Trotter, Australian, a resident in the UK since 1988, (mostly) independent traveller, nurse and a Globetrotter Club member (since 1998), will be talking about her recent trip to Japan in ‘sakura’, cherry blossom season. Having a full time occupation means that trips so far away must pack a lot of things into a short time. While the ideal would be to dawdle and meander around, this trip is all about seeing as much as possible of this amazing land in the thee weeks available. Japan Rail Pass in hand, a personal hotspot (to aid connection and compensate for the language gap), one small bag on wheels and camera, the trip begins…. and one cannot have too many photos of cherry blossoms!
London branch meetings are held at The Church of Scotland, Crown Court, behind the Fortune Theatre in Covent Garden the first Saturday of each month, unless there is a UK public holiday that weekend.
