Living Elsewhere and its Lessons

PRESENTED ON JUL 04, 2014
IN ERFURT @ VOL 1

Living abroad is more than just a cultural experience, especially after living in 14 cities in 7 countries. Barbara Kuntze, an English language coach and restless Gemini, has always wanted to see more of the world, but traveling is only one way with usually a limited glimpse into the area.  Living and working (and volunteering, such as in the Galapagos) elsewhere, allows one to gain an insight into another world and  (re)assess one's place in life. Lifelong learning continues in the cities and with the people we encounter on the path; the journey is the life!

APPLAUD THIS!
