Forty countries in nine years… that is how many Jean and Bob Wickens have visited while they have lived in Cyprus.
On 16 October some 26 women met at St Luke’s to enjoy an entertaining illustrated talk by Jean about their travels to places as far-flung as Oman, Iceland, Chile and Japan. Jean punctuated her talk with amusing anecdotes about once-in-a-lifetime experiences like staying in a Buddhist monastery in Japan, witnessing floods in the desert of Oman and seeing whales and glaciers in Iceland.
She cleverly avoided “death by holiday snap” by grouping a myriad images into topics like food, religious buildings and modes of transport, making for a fascinating and funny address. Many thanks to her and to the women of St. Luke’s for the delicious tea that followed.
