Meet, Plan, Go 2011

Sun 14 August 2011

I'm honored to be on the panel of Boston's 2011 Meet, Plan Go. MPG encourages people to take career breaks. They host an annual nationwide in the autumn, and free local meetups through the year. MPG's 2011 event will be held on October 18. Several cities will squeeze in at least one local meetups before the event.

The first Meet, Plan, Go was held two weeks before I left for Siem Reap. The reality of leaving the country was sinking in, and I needed a dose of encouragement. Between the panel and the audience, there were travelers from a huge variety of backgrounds and motivations. As a final boost, there was a raffle drawing for all the attendees. I won the monthlong Conversation Corps France homestay prize courtesy of sponsor GeoVisions.

As I collect my thoughts for MPG I'll post suggestions for my fellow travelers.
