Travel & Holiday Group


9.30am, Thursday 25th July

Balwyn Baptist Church, 517 Whitehorse Road Balwyn (Melway 46 F8)

Our June meeting was a presentation by Garry Kerr on his 2010 and 2011 trips to Luxembourg, which is a small country bordered by Belgium, Germany and France. Even though the country is small by our standards  – 2,586km², it has a history dating back to 963AD.  The reason for the Kerrs’ 2010 visit was the birth of their daughter’s first child, and as they were in Europe, they thought they may as well go on a Mediterranean cruise! Garry liked Luxembourg so much, he returned in 2011 to celebrate his granddaughter’s first birthday.

As Garry is a keen photographer, we were treated to a variety of shots of Luxembourg’s parks and old buildings in a selection of “home-made” videos.  The second part of Garry’s presentation covered the cruise from Barcelona, up  the west coast of Italy and to the ports on the Riviera. Thanks Garry for a well presented show.

Garry also reminded us that he booked his flights and cruise through Travelrite.

At our next meeting, John Finlay will take us on a trip to China.
