Julian will start his presentation with a series of Travel Tips which he has learned over the years. These tips can be useful for a weekend getaway or a weeks long trip.
Julian and his wife Maggie travelled to Sri Lanka this spring from late January to mid February. Julian will share images and information about Sri Lanka in a travelogue format. Sri Lanka is a country rich in culture that goes back thousands of years, rich in animals and birds, and of course the source of some of the best tea in the world.
Sri Lanka was caught up in a civil war between the Tamils in the north and the rest of the country. The civil war ended in 2009 and since then tourism has taken off. Julian will share lots of interesting information and images about this fascinating country.
Julian retired from Agfa as VP Medical Imaging in 2002. Since retirement, he and his wife Maggie have spent 3-5 months of the year in England's Lake District. Having sold the property in 2015 they are enjoying travel combined with a major love of photography. Julian designs websites for various non-profit organizations including our own RCMC website. Maggie and Julian have lived in Guelph since 2009 and are enjoying their retirement close to their 3 grandchildren in Waterloo.
