IRELAND: ONE SEAT LEFT! Is it too soon to think about next summer? There’s only space for ten of us on this trip, and about half the seats are currently full. We’ll visit castles from the middle ages and learn about the geological and religious history of Ireland. We’ll kayak under the stars in Skibbereen, visiting with phosphorescence and fairies, and we’ll participate in concerts, Irish pub sessions and a private music party. We’ll meet in Dublin on July 9, 2019. Drop me a line at blewis@williams.edu for details and reservation info. details on dates and pricing.

GRAND CANYON: We’re back from an amazing ten days, rafting the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Next trip…spring 2020!  I’m waiting on the Park Service for dates and pricing. If you’d like details, let me know.  This trip sells out fast!

  Most of you know that I often go to schools to talk about my family’s emigration from Germany in 1940, during WWII.  This year, I presented again at Monument Valley Middle School in Great Barrington, MA, Grand Canyon School in Grand Canyon, AZ, Mount Anthony High School in Bennington, VT, and just added Herberg Middle School to the list.  Drop me a line if you know a school or teacher that would be interested in hosting this presentation.
