November 16th - Winter in Iceland - Again!
Yes, again. In 2014 Charlie Anderson ventured to Iceland in February and presented a show at Changes in Latitude. This last winter he returned to that (still) cold, wet, and windy island, spending a couple of weeks in the less-visited Eastern Fjords. You may think he’s nuts, but come to this new show and see why the amazing scenery is worth braving the winter weather. We’ll hike to glaciers and waterfalls, view icy rivers and windy seacoast, and put on crampons to see nature’s ice sculptures up close. We’ll visit quaint villages and desolate lave fields, and even see some northern lights.
November 23rd - No Show. Happy Thanksgiving!
November 30th - Indescribable Peru: Lima, the Amazon, and the Highlands
How do you describe a country as diverse and contradictory as Peru? We'll tour the coastal city of Lima, with its colonial Spanish architecture, before moving to the upper Amazon basin to spend some time in a primitive jungle setting. From there, we'll travel to the highlands, where the Inca culture still dominates, and explore magnificent Machu Picchu, the crown jewel of Incan archaeology. Our final destination will be Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world at 12,500 ft., where we'll visit the indigenous Peruvians who live on floating islands made of reeds
December 7th - Italy: Hiking the Dolomites
Charming villages and farms, mountain huts (“refugi”) with breathtaking views, and beautiful old cities, all woven within a network of trails, await visitors to the spectacular Dolomites region of northern Italy. Join us as we describe our July 2016 travels in this geologically, linguistically, and culturally distinct area of the Italian Alps. We’ll talk about our hiking adventures, including leisurely rambles through flowery high alpine pastures, stopping for lunch at farms and refugi, as well as more challenging hiking along the first portion of the Alta Via I. We’ll also tell you about our overnights at some refugi along with our visits to the fashionable resort town of Cortina d’Ampezzo, the lovely village of Mareson, and the bustling and beautiful city of Bolzano.

January 18th - Adventuring in the Antarctic and Nepal
Join Jeff Blumenfeld at Changes in Latitude as he takes you on an adventure trip to Antarctica: the coldest, driest, windiest continent on earth.
Learn about a journey to the frozen continent with North America’s brightest high school students - a trip that a favorite teen in your life can take someday.
He will also speak about the Nepal “Gift of Sight” Project, a Humanitarian medical mission to a remote region of Nepal to provide quality eye care to the people of this spectacular, although impoverished country. He will show a 9-minute documentary that you’ll never forget.
January 25th - Walking the Camino de Santiago: Spain
Have you ever started walking and just wanted to keep going? Join Clarissa as she shares her 500 mile walking adventure on the Camino de Santiago, taking the popular Camino Frances route from the Pyrennes to Santiago de Compestela and then onto Finistere “the world’s end”. With two friends, a back pack and a sense of curiosity, she, like thousands of pilgrims since the 10th century, discovered the power of earth, sky and feet.
