Travelers curious about living and working abroad, taking a sabbatical to gallivant around the world, or simply going on a spiritual journey can take their first steps to an adventure at Waypost, a new monthly travel lecture series.
Lee O’Brian, co-founder and co-host of Waypost, will kick off the discussion on January 23 exploring living abroad and the lessons he’s learned with “Expat Life – As Good as it Sounds?”
O’Brian, 37, lived and worked for a decade in four different countries and eight different industries, according to the lecture series website.
O’Brian, a straight man, co-founded and co-hosts Waypost with follow global vagabond Cathrine Lindblom Gunasekara, 29, who was born and raised in Norway. Like O’Brian, she’s lived and worked on three continents and traveled to more than 40 countries.
They have both settled – for the moment – in San Francisco.
Hungry to hear stories from fellow travelers and friends, rather than the more formal travel conversations they created Waypost with the assistance of Jetpac, the iPad app for travel inspiration.
“We are hoping travelers and aspiring travelers will enjoy listening to ‘behind the scenes’ stories and will get inspired to set out on the next journey they’re dreaming of,” said Gunasekara.
The free travel lecture series will be held on a Wednesday each month from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Stanza Coffee Bar, 3126 16th Street, San Francisco. Space is limited, to RSVP visit http://www.meetup.com/traveltalks/.
Discussions in the fall will focus on LGBT travel.
