March and April for Columbia Club of Greece have been months dedicated to events for the community with a dedicated Global Columbia Community Outreach Day. This year to celebrate the cause we will have the pleasure to hear from Columbia Alumnus Dr Theo Anagnostopoulos about his remarkable experience, in the Pacific Ocean on E/V Nautilus on a National Geographic expedition. Also being an experienced traveler with children, he will share with us useful tips on how to travel the world with them. The appropriate age group for the children is over 10 to attend and comprehend Theo's talk. Coffee and snacks will be offered, and we will welcome you from 12:00 arrival for coffee and some networking.

He will tell us about his experience of participating in the National Geographic expedition around the Hawaiian Islands on the expedition vessel Nautilus alongside the legendary explorer Dr. Ballard - the man who discovered the Titanic wreck. The goal of the National Geographic expedition was to investigate the interaction of the human factor with the aquatic environment. Having travelled to 94 countries and 6 continents, Theo is also the perfect person to confide how he has managed to do a lot of this with his children!
