World Tourism Day - 27 September ✈️

“Travelling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta “When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.” – Susan Heller INTRODUCTION This week's 'CST Friendship Group' was 'Travel Plans', as 'World Tourism Day' is on 27th September. We did a round of introductions, stating what our favourite 'Staycation' would be in the UK, given the current travel restrictions.

We also asked what is members' favourite mode of transport, or the best journey they have ever undertaken.

We asked members to come prepared with a favourite holiday photo, or indeed an old passport photograph, to show the group - just for fun!
