Little did we think some 20-plus years ago when we piled into cars surrounded by tents, walking gear and food, ready for a camping weekend in Derbyshire with our NWR group, that we’d still be heading off together all these years later. However, after that first weekend under canvas we decided to give Youth Hostels a try and we’ve been hostelling at least once every year since!
If NWR did not exist, I would have to invent it. Where else would I get to meet regularly with a bunch of interesting women and talk about any subject under the sun?
I love being a member of NWR, because in these days of virtual friends and short tweets, I appreciate face to face meetings with real women, where we can discuss real topics in real time.
Mairi Nasr grew up in rural Scotland, she moved to the Middle East and lived there for twenty years with her Lebanese husband and three children. She is co-author of children’s fantasy novel, Food Wars.
Food Wars follows the story of Porky, an obese teenager from Glasgow, who teams up with seven other ‘Keepers’ from across the world. The Keepers wage war on the Food Masters, the corporations that control the world food market.
