Armchair Travellers

Poet Robert Herrick (1591 - 1674) said

...thou at home without tyde or gale,
Canst in thy Map securely saile:
Seeing those painted Countries; and so guesse
By those fine Shades, their substances:
And from thy Compasse taking small advice,
Buy'st travel at the lowest price.'

Why not take up Robert Herrick’s suggestion?
Come along and travel the world with us. Every month one of our FU3A members takes us to a different country with not just maps but with images and sometimes video and even music.

The group welcomes all U3A members. A small charge is made to cover the cost of the venue and refreshments.
