A talk by local u3a member Nick Harding

Nick decided to celebrate his 70th birthday by travelling around the world using public transport. Not as many adventures as Phileas Fogg and certainly not in 80 days, he left his house in London in August 2019 to return three and a half months later to a new life in Addingham! 

Travelling on trains, buses, containerships, and the occasional taxi, he went across Russia & Central Asia, China and South East Asia. Then across the Pacific and through North America before a short hop across the Atlantic to Liverpool. 

He will talk about the joys (and otherwise) of solo travel at 70. Plus the planning and practicalities of such an adventure. 

Entrance is FREE

Free tea or coffee and a biscuit served from 10.00 when the doors open. The talk starts promptly at 10.30.

You are welcome to bring a friend.
