  • Sept. 23: Alana Lukes took a trip to England and Wales, which included Bath, Glastonbury, Wells, Avebury, Stow-on-the-Wold, Conwy, Caernarfon, the Lake District, Hadrian’s Wall, York, the Tower of London, and Windsor. Topics to explore are: Neolithic axe heads, sheep, slate, the world’s largest pencil, castles, two stone circles, a Roman camp, Churchill’s Blenheim, and of course food.
  • Sept. 30: Pat and Lydia Walsh toured Croatia and Lake Bled in Slovenia. They journeyed to historic Zagreb, beautiful Lake Bled, and the unspoiled Dalmatian Coast, including the Habsburg resort of Opatija, the island of Hvar, and unforgettable Dubrovnik.
  • Oct. 7: In 2018, Judy and Stan Schretter ended their cruise through the Suez Canal (described in a previous Trip Tale given in Reston) with two days in Mumbai, exploring how a once-vibrant Jewish heritage still co-exists with the predominant Muslim and Hindu cultures in modern day India. Driving in Mumbai was an adventure in itself!
  • Oct. 21: Sandy Hoch traveled to Newfoundland and Labrador. Among other sites, she enjoyed the dramatic beauty of Gross Morne National Park, the Viking settlement at L’Anse Aux Meadows, and the Arches National Park. Then she took a ferry ride to Labrador’s Red Bay, a 16th century Portuguese whaling village.
  • Oct. 28: Nancy Fleetwood took a winter RV trip across the southern United States: from New Orleans, Austin, San Antonio, Waco, down to the Sea of Cortez in Mexico, to the desert of Quartzite, Palm Springs, and north to the wine country of California.
  • Nov. 4: Lowell Tonnessen and Mary Lou Eng got an insider’s view of Singapore through a niece living there, with side trips to Thailand (Chiang Mai and Bangkok) and Malaysia (Malacca and Kuala Lumpur).
