(All shows start at 7:00pm and are FREE of charge unless noted otherwise)
February 7th: Beautiful Brazil
In Brazil you can experience several world wonders in one country…..from the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro (which was voted one of the new seven wonders of the world), to the incredible Iguazu Falls in the south. In the north you can travel down the mighty Amazon River, or see the historic colonial center of Olinda on the coast. The program ends with a visit to the islands of Fernando de Noronha and the Baia do Sancho Beach, voted the number one beach in the world by Trip Advisor.
February 14th: Wandering in England
Spring is a wonderful time of the year in England, (well, except for the rain and wind). The countryside is even greener than usual, wildflowers bloom in the fields and woods, and the glorious landscape gardens are at their best. Join Pat Carney and Charlie Anderson for a short tour of castles and estates, cliff-side walks, valley farms and high windswept moors
February 21st: Travel with us on a Barge Trip in Holland
6 FAMILY MEMBERS. 1 BOAT. 2 WEEKS. 0 MUTINIES.
Curious to know how we survived? Come to see the “Holland By Boat” slide show to find out. Despite almost losing THE map (now, that’s a story!!), we successfully navigated the canals in northern Holland. Please join us on this Fantastic Trip!
February 28th: Spring Break- no show.
Products of the Month –
Brand new to the store this month are gorgeous hats and scarfs from various brands that will assure you’re both stylish and protected by the sun whether you are traveling to a sunshine destination or sticking around in sunny Boulder.
These hats have a SPF 50+ to help guard you from the sun while you’re basking away, and let’s be honest, they’re extremely hip.
Another way to protect your skin is by using a scarf. In store we have an abundance of brand-new scarfs hand selected by the owner of Changes in Latitude.

Travel Tip of the Month!
Booking Hotels Online
Everyday more travelers are choosing to book their hotels online themselves rather than hire a travel agent, if this is you, listen up.
From our favorite travel books, Lonely Planet, here are a few tips. ——
- “Book Early” - it has been said that hotel rooms are released to the public roughly 18 months in advance and typically this is when you will get the best offer. Planning ahead never hurt anyone!
- “Look for features, not stars” - People are usually attracted to the number of stars a hotel has. Instead of jumping for the high rated place, read the reviews of a lesser rated hotel in the area. You’ll save money and you may be pleasantly surprised with what you find.
- “Book your flight and hotel together”- By booking your flight and hotel together, you are allowing yourself to find “great value deals” since you are already planning ahead.
- “Avoid peak times”- You’ll find that Fridays and Saturdays are typically the more popular days, flights work the same way. By avoiding these days and booking a flight or hotel on an “off” day you’ll be sure to find a cheaper option.
