Natural History taking a break

MONTHLY TALK : Thursday, 11th July 2019 at 2pm – 3:30pm

“3000 miles around Rajasthan”.  Retired assistant headteacher, voluntary worker and charity supporter Gillian Bolt will give an illustrated talk about a trip to Rajasthan.

A significant birthday for Gillian resulted in a decision to take ‘a holiday out of our comfort zone’. namely a railway tour around the Northern part of India. Flying into Delhi, travelling by train to destinations unknown or unheard of at the time, viewing forts and other amazing buildings whilst also meeting up with local people was a great experience. With temperatures hitting 47 degrees C and uncertain stomachs – but viewing some of the ‘most beautiful’ sights in the world, it was certainly the journey of a lifetime.
