Delmarva Travel Club
We haven’t been everywhere…
but it’s on our bucket list!
The Delmarva Travel Club (formerly the Delmarva Bucket List Travel Club) is a group who meet monthly for presentations about different parts of the world given by its members.
The club was founded in 2016 by Sue Fox, a retired college professor, who developed and led college study trips to different parts of Italy, including Sicily; Ireland; Andalusia, Spain; and Paris and Bruges, together with trips to the California Bay Country (San Francisco and Monterey) and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
It is open to all who love to learn about the world, including those who have traveled, those who can no longer travel, and those who wish to travel.
The club meets the second Wednesday evening of the month. For more information contact Sue Fox at email@example.com.
During the time of covid, the club requests that only those who are fully vaccinated attend the meetings and take the club trips.
The Delmarva Travel Club has had presentations on many countries in Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.
The club sponsored a trip to Venice, Vicenza, Padua, Lucca, Florence, Assisi, and Rome in November 2017 and to Bordeaux, France for a Scenic Diamond River Cruise with a pre-trip to Bilbao and San Sebastian, Spain, and a post-trip to Paris in October 2018. In October of 2019, the club trip was to Ireland.
Future group trips include the Danube River Cruise and Oberammergau Passion Play in May 2022; Splendor of Sicily In October 2022; and the Rhone-Saone River Cruise in November 2022. Brochures for the Sicily trip and river cruises can be found here.
