Europe on Ten Miles a Day

Date: Thursday, August 25, 2016
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Peacham Library’s Summer Series continues with a bonus talk by Barry and Lynne Lawson.

Barry and Lynne will talk about how their method of travel has evolved over the years from “it’s Tuesday, we must be in Milan” to staying in one place for a while. They will also talk about their primary mode of travel: walking, and how walking gives a very different perspective from seeing the countryside from a vehicle. They’ll focus mostly on the UK and Europe, telling how they plan, organize and manage their trips, from choosing a destination to packing to lodging to food – and trail walking! Peacham Library programs are free and open to the public. The Community Center Theater was supported by the Vermont Arts Council and the State of Vermont.
