If your interest is just in learning about other places and cultures please come. The January 20th meeting will offer a photo presentation of Nepal by Robert Painter, Travel Writer/Photographer. Come view a slide/powerpoint presentation of the beautiful scenery and astonishing people of Nepal. See a valley filled with hundreds of waterfalls. See a raging river spanned by scores of cantilevered and cable suspension bridges. Come see what it is like to trek 140 kilometers cross country from an altitude of about 3,000 feet all the way up to the highest pass in Nepal – as high as the Everest Base Camp.
Come enjoy the view of the scenic city of Pokhara and travel by boat across a beautiful lake and climb a steep hill to find the World Peace Pagoda. Stroll through the streets of the old city and World Heritage Site of Bhaktapur. Depart Nepal from the teeming streets of Kathmandu and enjoy the largest celebration of the year in Nepal.
Please visit the website of the New Mexico Roadrunners Travel Club. Feel free to sign up on the site so you won’t miss any of the adventures that follow each month. In February the presentation will be on the Rose City of Petra, Wadi Rum where Lawrence of Arabia roamed the desert, Bethany on Jordan where Jesus was baptized and the fabulous resorts of the Dead Sea . . . and lots of places in between – all in the country of Jordan.
Remember, there are no fees for membership. Complimentary refreshments will be served. Door prizes will be awarded. And, best of all, you’ll have an opportunity to make new friends and explore wonderful travel opportunities. Following the monthly travel presentation there will be time for questions about the show as well as time to talk about places YOU might wish to visit. In addition there may be updates on TSA regulations, travel products that have been tested with reviews – good or bad!- and travel news or topics that anyone may wish to bring up for discussion. See you there.
Keep on Traveling!
