Sharing "The Way of St. James" - The Camino de Santiago de Compostela

What a fun class this is! The topic material is fascinating for new folks and a nostalgic joy for veteran "Pilgrims." It probably sounds familiar because it has been popularized in recent movies such as The Way with Martin Sheen, as well as biographical books. We have narrated Power-point slides, and discussion time. Imagine taking a month or so to backpack across 500 miles of northern Spain along the same route used by the Knights Templar! So challenging and so inspirational; it can be life changing! (1 session)

Instructor: Bill Persson's passions are "Sharing The Camino" and hiking the Grand Canyon. He's trekked part of The Camino and has scheduled all 500 miles for the near future. A Pittsburgh native, Bill has a BS degree in Education from Penn State. His management career was in training, marketing and human resources. He has 25 years of public speaking in ministry and volunteering. A 30-year Arizona resident, Bill's hiked the Grand Canyon over 50 times. His style features fun, fitness and family.

Small Boat Cruising

Learn about small ships that range from mega yachts and sailing vessels of less than 5,000 tons to ships of about 25,000 tons. These ships may carry as few as 22 passengers or as many as 350 and tend to be more upscale although that isn't always the case. Intriguing itineraries are more often the focus of the voyage and often include some ports of call that are inaccessible to larger ships. (1 session)
