John Phillips rode his motorcycle over the world’s highest road pass - Khardung La Pass in northern India. At 18,380 feet, it is the same altitude as the Mount Everest base camp.

In the month of October Sylvie Chmiliar was part of a team that went to Uganda to serve the widows and orphans through the widows gardens project - Living Hope. Of course stopping at the Equator she could not pass up the opportunity of sharing our local paper with the world. So here she is, proudly showing off The Comox Valley Record at the Equator in Uganda, Africa.

We took the Record with us to Switzerland in September 2019. Taken on our last day in Pontresina, Switzerland. In the photo: (from left) Don McQueen, Reimin Broad, Peter and Joanne Paulson, Kathy McQueen, Ursula and Nadia Davare, Dale and Shelley Kvisle, Judith Conway, Katherine Kirk and Glenn Broad. In front is our tour guide extraordinaire and friend, Viktor Davare.

Trevor and Anne Sinclair took The Record along to Table Mountain, Cape Town, South Africa.
