• Malta & Southern Italy—Thursday, October 12. Discover Malta, a prosperous, independent Mediterranean island nation that is filled with natural beauty and historic sites, and the south of Italy, a cultural treasure trove, with photos and stories by traveler Richard Dick.
• Russia—Thursday, November 9. Explore the river route from St. Petersburg to Moscow, including the ancient and diverse towns and cities between them. Witness the richness of Russian art, culture, and history though photos and experiences shared by Luann Phillipich.
