Finding Armchair Travel

Listen to learn more about Travelling Minds, discover how she managed to create something out of her love of travelling while still living in the city of Winnipeg, and find out what it means to be an armchair traveller.

Libby's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 38, on June 6 2019, at the Park Theatre.
