Exploring the Backroads of Switzerland

We are exceptionally fortunate to have one of the most traveled and interesting speakers we’ve ever had to talk about the Incredible Colors of Europe. Ralph Danielsen of northern Illinois has made it virtually a second career in life to travel Europe and record and photograph some of the most picturesque and stunning sights on that extensive continent. And not just the big-city sights that many already know about, but the backroad areas, countryside charms, and special jewels that most might miss.

For our Roundtable, Ralph will be showing his beautiful Backroads of Switzerland presentation in search of some of Europe’s finest medieval towns and castles, stunning alpine vistas, ancient ruins of the Roman Empire, and the amazing diversity of this tiny jewel of a country in its distinctly Italian, French, and German regions. You will also greatly enjoy his historical comments and his periodic tidbits of humor that will add to the fun of his program. So don’t miss this highly informative and spectacular Roundtable.

Questions? Ron Sonntag, 414-788-4907, or ron@rspr.com. Dinner will be served from 5 pm, so eat while listening.
