Voyage vicariously to exotic places with our world=traveling presenters via their slide shows. Four adventures await you (in this order):

"Tunisia, a Mix of Many Cultures" - Lora and Richard Lunt. Richard and Lora were Peace Corps Volunteers in Tunisa. At SUNY Potsdam, Richard taught anthropology, folklore and literature; Lora teaches French and Arabic. They have team-taught a Learning Community course tittled: "The Middle East."

"Beautiful Malaysia" - Dana Barry. Dana is a science educator, an author, and the senior technical writer at Clarkson's Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP). She served in Malaysia as a Visiting Professor three times.

"The Silk Road (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Usbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan)" - Cynthia and Mark Coleman. Mark taught English and Cynthia was in chemistry at SUNY Potsdam. Mark also taught at the American University in Bulgaria where some of his students were from Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. The couple's travels off the beaten path began with ten weeks behind the Iron Curtain in 1970 and have continued to their most recent trip a visit to the "Stans" last fall.

"Tulips and Much More: Holland and Belgium in Springtime" - Lynn and Nils Ekfelt. Now that Lynn and Nils have retired from SLU where Nils taught German and Lynn was University Archivist and Special Colelctions Librarian, they have more time to enjoy their favorite hobbies, canooeing and TRAVEL.
