Fall Potpourri II

October 3 – France and Bohemia on a Budget

This class highlights the sights and scenery this presenter encountered on a recent trip to Europe. Worden also shares hints about how to experience much, control your own agenda and do it economically. He visits Toulouse, France where his daughter lives and includes a side-trip to in Annecy, known as the Venice of the Alps. He also includes images of the city of Geneva from his visit to the International Red Cross headquarters. Worden will also share the beauty of the iconic cities of Budapest, Vienna and Prague. Much of his travel is via bicycles, boats and on foot!
