Fabulous Egypt: More than just Pyramids and Museums

Madison Public Library: Hawthorne Branch

NOTE: Date is changed to Tuesday, February 26, 2019. Sorry for any inconvenience. Of all his world travels, Egypt was by far the most intriguing... and often unnerving. Join Bob Pickett as he experienced mind-blowing mini-adventures and mis-adventures (some quite frightening), including climbing the pyramids, riding a hot air balloon at day-break on New Years, riding the overnight train from Luxor to Cairo, hiking through the Sahara, and interacting with the local natives.

Quebec City: 400 Years of History

Madison Public Library: Hawthorne Branch

Join Kent Wenger as he explores Quebec City, one of the oldest European cities in North America (founded in 1608) with the only remaining fortified city walls north of Mexico. But Quebec City isn't just about the past -- it's vibrant, intensely friendly and exciting – concentrating on both people and food. To put it bluntly, Quebec is one of the closest places you can go and feel like you're someplace completely different. Bon Voyage!

Peru…More Than Just Machu Picchu

Madison Public Library: Hawthorne Branch

Note: That the date of this show was changed from October 24, 2018 to April 24, 2019. Sorry for any inconvenience. Peru is now a world-class destination: From mysterious Amazon jungle wildlife/tours, to rugged Andes pre/post-Inca villages, to fertile Coastlines with magical beaches and so much more. Join Pablo Olivares as he shows you the undiscovered Peru with the best food, people and eye-popping sites anywhere in South America!

Hiking the Iconic Annapurna Circuit in Nepal

Madison Public Library: Hawthorne Branch

The 230 KM Annapurna Circuit traverses landscapes ranging from subtropical banana plantations to the frigid Thorong La, the world's highest hiking pass. While on the trail, meet friendly locals and fellow hikers from all around the world. So lace up your hiking boots and join Katie and Dan Perry on this journey of a lifetime. Learn when to go, what to pack, how much money to bring, and which of the many options for side-trips that is right for you.
