Budget Treasures Travel Club October 2013

Presentation:

Please join us for our next monthly meeting - Callan, Lynn, and Steve will share their Columbian adventures!  Callan spent two months between college year-abroad experiences before returning as a Fulbright Fellow for a year [masked]).  Lynn and Steve joined him for a month to experience some of the country's highlights.

Colombia is a gem of a travel destination deserving of its rising star status in the areas of economy, culture and politics.   It has come a long way since "la violencia" - an era that still shrouds our (U.S.) stereotype.

Boasting pre-Colombian lost cities, historic colonial strongholds, isolated jungles, arctic-like glaciers, coffee plantations, modern urban centers, and works by literary and artistic masters, Colombia is a challenge to fully experience in one trip.  Come hear why Colombia belongs on your bucket list.

Next Presentations:

November 2013 - K2, Northern Pakistan

December 2013 - no meeting.  Happy Holidays!!

January 2014 - TBD (either North and South Korea or India)

February 2014 - Galapagos Islands

Business:

As mentioned in a special message sent a few days ago, please come prepared to buy one or more $10 raffle tickets.  We are raising money to purchase a projector that will be used and owned exclusively by the club.  We will be selling tickets through the November meeting when the drawing will be held.  Good luck!!

As always, we really, really, really appreciate your generosity and support!

We look forward to seeing you at the October meeting!

Terry, John, Richard, and David
