No Reservations Travel Club

Name:
Location: Sacramento, California, United States

Started as a club for budget and independent travelers, we have been in existence since July, 2001. We meet at 7:00 pm the first Tuesday of each month, February-December, at the Arcade Public Library Community Room, 2443 Marconi Avenue, as a library sponsored program. The meetings feature a speaker, plus time for exchanging information within the group. There are no membership dues. The second Tuesday of each month we have dinner at an ethnic restaurant. Each summer we have a potluck dinner at my home. In 2005 I added club tours to our activites and they have been very successful. To be added to the e-mail list, or for further information, contact Judith Anshin by e-mail at penguinatlaw@gmail.com and please put "travel club" in the subject line.

July Meeting

Our July meeting is Tuesday, July 11th, at 7 pm at the Arcade Library Community Room, 2443 Marconi Ave.  Please note this is the second Tuesday of the month because the first Tuesday is July 4th.
Our speaker is Robert Ono, who will talk about exploring the Arctic wilderness at Svalbard.  This is an area where most of us have not visited, so it should be a very interesting presentation.

Wildfires in South Africa

Earlier in June, 2017, the area of Knysna, South Africa, was ravaged by wildfires.  Friends of mine, Gill and Graham Maskill, owner of Africa 2000 Tours, were able to escape with their two pets, and their house survived.  The fire burnt to within two feet of their front door!
However, the devastation includes the local flora as well as the wildlife in the area.  They are working hard to clear the area and replant the flora, provide food and water for the wildlife, as well as veterinary care.  Much of the wildlife were burned and have had to be euthanized by the vets.
Money is needed to fund all of this, so if you are willing to make a donation, of any size, it will do much good.  Just $25 is enough to fund two workers for a day, in clearing and re-planting the area.  You can make donations via Pay Pal to:
PayPal.Me/eastfordglendisaster for the housing area work and to http://www.knysnaaws.com/donate for the animal rescue/rehabilitation work.  

Thank you for caring.  

 


Northwest Passage

I, Judith Anshin, am looking for a roommate to sail the Northwest Passage in 2019.  Crystal Cruises will have a new, small ship that year designed for this type of sailing.  It begins in Anchorage, and includes three stops in Greenland before ending in New York City.
If you might be interested, contact me by email, at the address above.

Easter Island

A retired female traveler is looking for someone to travel with her to Easter Island in 2018.  If you are interested, contact me, Judith Anshin, at the email address on this blog, and I will put you in touch with her.
