Last June Barbara Camfield and David Holland did a trip by bike and barge between Bruges and Amsterdam and a tramping trip into the Pyrenees, where they spotted two kiwis.
Stu Hutson and his wife recently had what he describes as a “leisurely tramping holiday in some of New Zealand’s loveliest terrain”.
Over 13 days they did some easy to medium tramping trips on the Travers/Sabine circuit, to Mt Owen and around the Mt Arthur tablelands, taking in a variety of scenery and some spectacular sights.
Last December, Lorraine Johns did a ten-day climbing trip in Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park with Simon Bell, Patrick Arnold and Rob Hawes.
The TTC team traversed the Anzac Peaks before ascending Aoraki/Mt Cook via the Linda Glacier route, then flying to the head of the Tasman Glacier to climb Hochstetter Dome, Walter, Green, and Elie De Beaumont.
Simon and Rob also climbed Vancouver, and Simon and Lorraine finished the trip with an ascent of The Footstool.
We travel back in time with Tish Glasson over one of the world’s most famous tracks and hear about the introduction of guided tours in the 1970s by well-known Otago tramper and mountaineer Jim Gilkinson.
In 2003 Jan Nye and Rob Joiner went to Cambodia with VSA and spent five years working with poor and disadvantaged people.
They will share their stories about the joys and heartbreak of living and working in a country where poverty strikes at the core.
Can you, or someone you know, keep us entertained or informed?
