February 14, 2024 – SVSU OLLI Travel Week

Presented by Patrick Twomey

The world is our oyster, and this will be our chance to look for some pearls. During the winter months it is so nice to contemplate travel - whether virtual or in person! We have invited our global tour guide Patrick back this February to discuss some of our - and his - favorite destinations around the world. For this monthly OLLI meeting, come ready to guess some global quiz questions! We have asked Patrick to speak on some specific destinations and he will also introduce us to one or two of the more remote places most of us only manage to visit through stories.
