There’ll be no airport security delays, lost luggage or tummy bugs to worry about when guests travel to Peru and China in comfort during upcoming presentations at the Headingley Community Centre.

Offered by Headingley Seniors’ Services, these two armchair travel presentations are being presented by Barbara and Cam Evans of Headingley.

The first one features photos from the Evans’ trip to Peru in 2009, and is scheduled on Jan. 29 at 1:30 p.m. in the centre’s multi-purpose room.

Barbara said she and Cam spent two weeks in Peru, with the highlight being their four-day hike along the Inca Trail. She recalls finding the uphill climb challenging, as the higher elevation meant thinner air.

"We were the last ones to come into camp, because we were taking pictures," she said.
It was challenging for them to go through all the photos they took and choose the best for their presentation.

"We’re going to bring some of our travel treasures too," she said.

Their presentation on their 2007 trip to Hong Kong and the Great Wall of China is set for Mar. 18 at 7 p.m.

Barbara said they visited a war veterans’ cemetery in Hong Kong and learned about the role Canadian forces played there during the Second World War.

They were amazed at the size of the Great Wall and other man-made structures in China.

"You see the vastness of it — it’s jaw-dropping."

Audience members will be able to ask questions and share travel stories after each presentation. No registration is required and there is no charge.
