“Traveling On A Budget”
This is a series of lectures by Dr. George Blanks detailing travel tips used by he and his wife, including methods for planning itineraries, transportation, and how to avoid pre-packaged tours, travel agencies. Participants will learn the finer points of tourism without falling into tourist “traps.”
“These programs will be of interest to those who are already world travelers as well as those who have dreamed of becoming one, or those who are just interested in the world around them,” said Blanks.
The course will contain six weekly lectures and will include travel to Africa, the Grand Canyon, Thailand, The Galapagos Islands, and Australia. Classes will be held at 4 p.m. Saturdays beginning October 15 at the President’s House on the Washington College Academy Campus. The cost is $50.
