Evening Talk: Travellers’ Tales ‘Around the World in 52 Days’ by Peter Runeckles

Around theWorld Map in 52 DaysOn Thursday 8th October at 7.30pm, Peter Runeckles will be giving an entertaining talk about his travels around the world.

“After 40 years working for the same organisation, most of which were spent in the same room, I decided I needed to make sure that the world was still round, and that if you set off travelling eastwards and kept going, you would arrive back where you started. I wanted to do this with as little flying as possible”, says Peter.

With just one flight across the Pacific, he achieved his goal, circumnavigating the globe by car, train, ferry and cargo freighter in 52 days. Come along and hear all about his amazing adventures.

The talk  is on Thursday 8th October 2015 at 7.30pm Dorset County Museum
(doors open at 7.00pm) and is open to all, and, to cover costs, a small donation of £3.00 is encouraged. The talk will take place in the Museum’s Victorian Gallery.
