Travel lovers were spoilt for choice at Living Choice Fullarton on 19th November when the 2nd Seniors’ Travel & Cruise Expo was held in the auditorium. Exciting new tours, from road trips within Australia to boutique tours in the picturesque Lake Garda district in Italy, were on show plus there were plenty of tempting cruises to exotic destinations on offer.
Residents and clients welcomed the opportunity to speak to the exhibitors in a relaxed environment and there were lots of prizes and special offers. Exhibitors included Phil Hoffmann Travel, Sealink, Lake Garda Tours, Collette Travel, RAA, Kaleidoscopic Travel, Cruise Holidays, Escape Travel, Travel-S and Elliott & Turner Travel Associates and many said they were surprised with the residents’ sense of adventure and love of travel. This was also evident in the Residents’ Travel Photo Competition where residents were asked to submit their travel photos for judging by the exhibitors. Kevin Pearson’s photo of Masai children going to school won Most Memorable, Gill Miller’s photo taken in Montmartre, Paris won Most Quirky and Jan Turner’s stunning photo of Aksla Viewpoint in Norway won Best View.
The expo attracted a steady stream of visitors throughout the 4-hour expo and the Resident Ambassadors were kept busy, manning the welcome desk and showing visitors the village facilities and display apartments. There was also complimentary Morning and Afternoon Tea plus entertainment by singer/guitarist Tim Cook. Congratulations to Fred Khoo of Tusmore who won the lucky door prize of a $100 voucher from Damien on Fisher Restaurant.
