Speaking this month:
- Andrea Orban and Laurence West — An Independent Travellers Guide to Libya
Libya is a country about which everyone knows one or two things but very few people know much. So we are fortunate to have two speakers who between them spent over five-years living and working there and left Tripoli on one of the last scheduled flights in February this year. Many of the things they thought they knew about Libya turned out to be less clear-cut on the ground than they seemed from afar and they also discovered many new things that came as wonderful surprises.In their talk, an Independent Travellers Guide to Libyaâ€š they will discuss their experiences of five UNESCO World Heritage sites, some of the best-preserved and least-visited Greco-Roman settlements anywhere in the world, and also touch on their trips to the Great Sea of Sand and the Acacus desert.
- Jacqui Trotter — Summer in Southern Scotland
