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?

First up is graphic designer Shiho Yokoyama with her presentation about handwritten fonts, and then Jean Snow (that's me) talks about he's been up to since moving to Asia 15 years ago.

Yota is often inspired by the vintage items he finds, and is motivated to construct something new and unique as a result.
