Introducing our Online Events

The current situation in regard to Covid-19 makes for an uncertain future for travel. But it is perhaps a good time to learn a little, find out some more about those destinations you have always wanted to go to, or perhaps know nothing about and have never previously considered. Why not find out a little more?

With this in mind we are launching a series of Online Events with special guest speakers.

Details will be displayed below.

All events are free but you must sign up to join.
