F903 Spring 2019 Trip Tales
Mondays, 2:15–3:40, Mar. 25–May 13
Coordinator: Tom Hady
  • Mar. 25: Dick Young went with all four of his adult children to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks to explore, climb, hike, and laugh a lot. Six months later, a wedding in Bozeman, Montana resulted in another memorable adventure.
  • Apr. 1: Katie Mitchell went cruising the Danube, Main, and Rhine rivers. Put yourself into a fairytale mode and enjoy charming towns, castles, churches, food and music as we make our way from Vienna to Amsterdam.
  • Apr. 8: Ever dream of sailing your own yacht to the Bahamas? Join Cindy Kalkwarf and David Toms on a virtual cruise aboard their yacht from Annapolis to the Bahamas. See charming southern towns along the US Intracoastal Waterway, then cruise on the Atlantic to the Bahamas for turquoise waters, sandy beaches, and glorious sunrises and sunsets. Learn what it is like to plan for and live aboard a sailboat for seven months.
  • Apr. 15: Roz Schanzer went waltzing through Europe. Join four intrepid travelers who like to walk fast as they explore the wonders of Austria, Denmark, Italy, Hungary, and Germany. Climb the snowy Tyrolean Alps, meet Otzi the Iceman (who also climbed mountains 5,300 years ago), visit the towns, castles, museums, and gardens lining the beautiful blue Danube, gape at the world’s most jaw-dropping amusement parks, and much more.
  • Apr. 22: Nancy Fleetwood enjoyed a river cruise on the “River of Gold,” the Douro River in Portugal, with side trips into Spain. Journey along and delight in the treasures that both countries have to offer.
  • Apr. 29: Tom Hady has spent several summer sojourns in Cannon Beach, Oregon, a quite different scene from our Outer Banks. Join Tom and Marilyn for sea stacks, surf, fires on the beach, views of “Terrible Tilly,” and visits to local institutions such as the Screw and Brew. Find out what Lewis and Clark were looking for at Cannon Beach.
  • May 6: Elsa Little takes us to Seattle (including Pike Place Market, the Boeing Factory Tour, and the beautiful Northwest) and Victoria, British Columbia (including Butchart Gardens, Vancouver Island, and the Empress Hotel).
  • May 13: Roger Frost went meandering in Morocco. We will see his video of a two-week tour in 2018 of this exotic country, visiting the major cities and historical sites, the Atlas mountain range, and taking a camel expedition to an overnight sojourn in a tent in the Sahara.
