Training For Travel

Where is Kingston Branch member Nancy Cutway UE, with her husband Steve?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ On a cruise, we transited the Panama Canal west to east, i.e. from the Atlantic to the Pacific, which takes about 9 hours, and our ship, M.V. Sirena of Oceania Cruise Lines, anchored at Balboa. The next day we visited by bus back across the isthmus to the new Information Centre for the 3rd lane of the canal which will accommodate Neopanamax freighters. Here we are boarding the Panama Canal Railroad for the return to Balboa. ]

Snowbird on the Rich Coast

Where is Sir Guy Carleton Branch member Sylvia Powers?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ To get away from Ontario winter, Sylvia vacationed at the Hotel Coco Beach near Manuel Antonio in Costa Rica in January. Manuel Antonio is a small oceanside village. Manuel Antonio National Park is often considered among the most biodiverse parks in the world. Spanning several natural habits, it boasts more than 109 different species of mammals and 184 species of birds. You can spot white-faced and howler monkeys, two-toed sloths, and the endangered squirrel monkey. ]

Big Bruddha

Where are Gov. Simcoe Branch members Doug Grant and Nancy Conn?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ In Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan, high on a hill in a park is a statue of Buddha, supposedly the largest seated statue of him in the world. Around it are numerous smaller statues; like Buddha they are made from bronze and gilded in gold. We visited here near the end of a group tour visit to Bhutan and nearby Nepal. ]

Making (No) Tracks

Where is Nova Scotia Branch member Dianne Hancock, UE?

Where in the World? Where in the World?

Answer:   [ Dianne Hancock UE stands beside St John's Anglican church, Port Williams, Nova Scotia – the church of her ancestors and over 200 years old. She has her foot on the iron boot-scraper from the old meeting house (click for a better look full-size). (Read more about the church from Photo #2: The original Old Meeting House of Port Williams, NS. Built 1770 for Cornwallis Anglican Parish (established in 1760), it was moved down the road a bit when the church was built, and services started ca. 1810. The meeting house is still intact, now used as an Antique Store. ]

All You Need Is Company

Where is Gov. Simcoe Branch member Doug Grant?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ On a Canadian group tour to Bhutan, we visited numerous temples. This was a boys' school, reusing an old royal palace, to the east of Trongsa in Central Bhutan. Little went to waste; the school reused/re-purposed lots of items and recycled the rest. The white board on the wall outlined a standard but very full day's program, from early in the morning through mid-evening. We visited the dormitory; very spartan with a mat to sleep on. It appeared that each child's worldly goods would fit into a small backpack. ]
