Speaking this month we have:
- Tomislav Perko – How to travel the world with almost no money?
Tomislav Perko, 29, is a travel writer from Croatia. After a career of a stockbroker, broke because of the financial crisis, he hits the road and turns it into his home. He uses alternative ways of travelling – hitch-hiking, couch-surfing, working/volunteering, and manages to wander around the world with just a little bit of money in his pocket, meeting the most amazing people on the way.
Five years later, he publishes a book “1000 Days of Spring” and goes around giving lectures about what it means to live on the road.
- Barbara Brooks – a quick trip across Canada & North America
Barbara is talking about her recent over six months travelling trip across Canada & North America and meeting old friends and making new ones.
- We are sorry the previously advertised talk by Jeanie Copland has had to be postponed.
