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!

All presentations available

Wow!  Just received an email from Johnny Linnert (Japan) telling me that ALL 21 presentations have been given the go-ahead and are available to see on this site.  HURRAY!  I wanted to make sure that all the PKs have a description in English (and German), especially since most of them are in German.  At least it will give others an idea of what kinds of ideas and projects people in Erfurt are doing.
At the moment info emails are going out to all the future presenters who indicated an interest in PechaKucha in June.  A number of people were so enthusiastic at the February event that they immediately lined up to give me their details.  Let us see how many actually present in June, but who knows it could also be in November.
I am curious, or rather we organizers are curious, to see how others do it.  Later this month, Dresden will have their PK7, so I think we will take the train (2hrs away) and take a peek as to they do it.
And now for the last few rays of sunshine in Madeira before returning to the snowy landscape in Germany.
