Немає причин не подорожувати соло

BY ANASTASIA STETSENKO
@ VOL 24 ON SEP 14, 2017

Анастасія Стеценко. Працює в HR, подорожувала Європою та Азією з друзями та поодинці. Вірить що одиночні подорожі є найбільш дієвим засобом пізнати себе та світ.

Немає причин не подорожувати соло. У мене був чіткий план: купити рюкзак, квиток в один кінець і приземлитись в Бангкоку. Куди далі і як довго це триватиме, в плані вказано не було. 111 азіатських днів я та мій рюкзак їздили по Таїланду, Малайзії та Сінгапуру. Ця подорож була дивовижною, лякаючою, радісною, болісною, надихаючою, — але вона була на 100 % моєю, бо я була в ній сама. І моя розповідь — про причини з яких, ви теж маєте поїхати кудись соло.

Cincinnati Asks: Do You PK?

It's been a few months since the last PechaKucha Night in Cincinnati -- hopefully a new volume is just around the corner -- but we just now found the terrific "Do you PK?" video that city's organizers put together, which includes a few rounds of one of our favorite games: the "PechaKucha" pronunciation game. The short also does a great job of explaining what the event is all about. So time to answer the question: Do you PK?
