Travel Tips Interest Group

Armchair traveler or seasoned adventurer– all are welcome to join and share members personal travel stories. We have walked the Egyptian sands with Elizabeth Mandel, attended a Northern Italian cooking school with Jenny Redfern, played with the penguins in Antarctica with Patricia Kindred, and basked in the sun of Provence while learning some valuable tips about navigating “Home Away” and other home rental sites with Lynn McCaw. Another example of a memorable presentation was a discussion of travel in Russia and Eastern Europe with former ambassador Steve Pifer and his wife Marilyn.
