JUST A REMINDER … Traditionally, there is no December Craig Bay Travellers newsletter, but the theme for the January issue is “Vignettes”. Let’s ease on into 2022 with something simple: brief anecdotes about personal travel experiences that don’t require too much effort to write. Anything goes (well, within reason). Your tales can be funny, life-affirming, revealing, inter-cultural, even scary. Just e-mail your notes to cbtravellers@hotmail.com  before Tuesday, December 28th.
