For seven eventful and fascinating days, Barbara and Don Crump island-hopped Dalmatia on the 37 metre ship Harmonia, cycled the islands of Korculaz, Mijet, Lastovo and Sipan, and explored the historic Old Town in the Bosnian city of Mostar.
Ever fancied walking and canoeing in the Kimberley? Lesley Haines took a break from the Wellington winter to explore this remote land of gorges, waterfalls, luxuriant vegetation and abundant bird life.
Last July, Shaun Barnett spent three weeks in Iceland on a photographic tour and walked the popular four-day Laugavegur Trail. Known as the land of 'fire and ice' with its volcanoes and glaciers, Iceland is also a place of surprising greenery, abundant waterfalls, puffins, turf-covered churches and corrugated iron buildings.
Conserving the declining numbers of Africa’s lions, leopards and cheetah is a massive challenge. Panthera is a global NGO committed to protecting big cats and their habitats. Club member Tong Young’s daughter Kim Young-Overton is the Director of Panthera’s Cheetah Program, based in Kafue National Park in Zambia.
In June 2016 David Holland and Barbara Camfield walked the Robert Louis Stevenson Trail in France from Puy en Velay to St. Jean du Gard. Joining them for several days were Carol Kelly and Doreen Launder. The path has changed somewhat since Stevenson travelled it in the 1870s with his famous donkey, Modestine, but the beauty of the countryside, the small villages and the footpaths remain delightful.
Last November, Peggy Munn and her party of TTC members set off to explore the tops west of the Waipakahi Valley.
