Have You Been to 7 Continents?

7 continents

42 Circumnavigators have reported that they have set foot on all seven Continents. Their names and chapters will be listed on this site later in October. We will announce when the names are posted. Each will receive a special certificate acknowledging their accomplishment. Contact Tracy Sancilio at club@circumnavigators.org


Where have you “Been”?

Circumnavigator Stephan Carmichael (Rochester, Minn.) called our attention to an App for your phone or tablet called Been. This free app allows travelers to log their visits to countries and states on a map. It’s a fun app for Circumnavigators. Link to the app on app store or on google play.


In Our Circle

Circumnavigator Paulette Cooper, co-president of the Palm Beach Chapter, is an amazing person. Not only a world traveler, she has authored 25 books and been the subject of another book about her investigation of Scientology. Now another extraordinary chapter in her life has come to light as recorded in the UK’s Daily Mail. Paulette, as an infant, and her young sister were orphans, living in German-occupied Belgium during World War II. Their parents were victims of the Holocaust, and Paulette and her sister were facing certain death when a friend of their father saved their lives by bribing a Nazi guard. Their rescuer was a well-connected Dutchman, Sijbren de Hoo. Paulette was eventually sent to America where she was adopted, educated and moved on to a successful life. It was many decades later that Paulette had the moving opportunity to meet the son of her rescuer, Peter de Hoo. It was an emotional reunion.

Members can read the whole gripping story.

Paulette is now happily married to Paul Noble who serves as co-president of the Chapter.


The Last Shot

Circumnavigator Patricia Buescher (Pacific Northwest Chapter) took this photo from a hot air balloon over Bagan in Myanmar.
