“Hitchhiking is defined as travel by getting free lifts in passing vehicles. most people… would describe it as one way of getting yourself killed. I define it as the eye opening experience of seeing kindness in strangers.” In 32 Months from PechaKucha Bandar Seri Begawan’s 6th Volume speaker Finah Yusof, founder of Gypsy Borneo, shares an amazing journey. A two month holiday to drink coffee and meet new friends ended up instead as an explosion of adventures and incredible encounters of human kindness in the span of thirty-two. Full of curiosity and the need to seek, her decision to continue traveling (or, really, hitchhiking) brought her experiences she never thought she would ever see and feel. She learned many things from how people are to how to survive to how to be what we all are… human. Finah urged people to have trust and to drop their fears. To say "Yes" instead of hesitating. To be alive.
Thank you volunteers
Like any event, Pecha Kucha wouldn’t be able to function without the work of all the people behind the scenes, and Pecha Kucha Wanaka was no different. We had an incredibly laid back yet effective bunch of people helping us out on the night and I just want to say a massive thank you to all of our volunteers for giving up their time to help make the night such a success, your enthusiasm and kindness really helped to bring a great vibe and flow to the evening and we hope you had as much fun working on this event as we did. Until next time folks.
