It’s nearly time to take a photographic tour across Vietnam and Cambodia with Paisley & District u3a.

On Thursday 5 October, u3a web manager and group leader, Rod Ferrier shares his recent travels to south-east Asia.

A 17 days trip across this region by bike and boat resulted in some spectacular Images of key historical and cultural sites. Among these are the Angkor Wat temples in Cambodia, which have UNESCO world heritage status.

Rod Ferrier’s travelogue and entertaining anecdotes kick start this u3a’s new session. Members’ monthly meetings are held in the Salvation Army Hall, Mill Street (PA1 1ND).

u3a chair, Kathy O’Donnell remarked: “There’s a saying that travel broadens the mind. This presentation promises to be a visual treat and is likely to generate a few questions.

“Before we hear from our guest speaker, there’s the chance to find out more about our u3a groups and activities. Paisley & District u3a now has 20 interest groups available to join for anyone no longer in full time work.

“We are holding an information fayre in the Hall, with refreshments, from 1.30pm-2pm. Anyone who is interested can come along, see what’s on offer and have a chat with any of our volunteers. More than 120 people already enjoy being in our u3a – you can too!”

Rod Ferrier said: “Vietnam has so much to offer, with a rich culture and history which is both old and new. We travelled from the north to the south with a support team and guides. Our small group was incredibly well looked after yet every day was full on!”
