The Addolorata Villa in Wheeling, part of the Franciscan Communities, will be hosting the Spring Into Knowledge 2019 LifeLong Learning Institute program, “Norway: Ferry through the Fjords,” presented in partnership with Harper College, on Tuesday, February 12, from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. This is one of many enriching and entertaining educational opportunities available to Addolorata Villa residents and all local adults ages 55 and older.
Visit the land of Vikings and trolls, where moody mountains provide a backdrop for storybook villages along deep blue fjords. Sightsee Oslo, Bergen, and the popular Norway-in-a-Nutshell mountains and fjords in between. Tale the Hurtigruten Coastal Ferry north from Bergen to well above the Arctic Circle, turning south at Kirkenes on the Russian border, and travel back to medieval Trondheim. Lonely Planet, a large travel guide book publisher has called this, “The most beautiful cruise in the world.”
With no required educational background, homework, or grades, the Lifelong Learning Institute provides great discussions, new friendships, and the joy of learning among peers. To secure your spot in this free program, RSVP with Liz Starman at (847) 808-4421. Seating is limited.
