I produced an event series from 2013 to 2014 called The Travelogues. I invited speakers to share their travel stories from Detroit, Macedonia, Ireland, Antarctica, Japan, Egypt, and more. It was an extremely gratifying series and I am lucky to have been able to learn so much about countries I have never been to through the stories of kind, local people who live, work, and play in Tampa Bay. I hope to produce another series of travel storytelling again in the near future.
Below is a live recording, overview, and group of photos from each event in the series.
