Living Room Travel #2: My 10-Month, Solo Female Adventure


31.07.2017, 19:00

Petra took a solo backpacking 10-month journey on the other side of the pond with limited budget and an “I-haven’t-really-done-my-research-properly” approach. She spent 3 months working in Maine, USA, flew to Brazil to volunteer for 2 months and travelled across the continent all the way up to Panama Canal for the remaining 5 months.

Petra says: “Those 10 months have been incredibly eventful among all the travel stories and I would especially like to share some experiences of how it was like to backpack alone. Even though solo female travelling is gaining popularity, there is still a lot of prejudice and mostly fear. I would like to share my aspect on both the positive and the negative.”

The event will be held in English language.

ABOUT LIVING ROOM TRAVEL:
Summer can be tough. You’ve got friends posting pictures on Facebook and Instagram of beautiful beaches, selfies with famous landmarks, and occasionally pictures of a holiday romance they’ve made… meanwhile you’re stuck in Ljubljana.

For those of you who have a summer in Ljubljana planned, this could be your chance to travel from the comfort of our living room.

Every Monday we are inviting travellers and travel bloggers to take us away with them as they relive their travelling adventures. Each presentation is full of tips and ideas for the next time you really hit the road.

Ziferblat is a place for socialising where you pay for time. Students are 4 cents per minute, non-students are 5 cents. Because we don’t want you to hurry, clocks for this event will stop after 60 mins.

Petra se je lotila zanimivega potovanja. Za 10 mesecev se je z nahrbtnikom odpravila čez ocean z omejeno zalogo denarja in s pristopom “Nisem pretirano raziskovala”. Tri mesece je preživela v Maine-i, ZDA, kjer je delala, nato je odletela v Brazilijo prostovoljit za dva meseca in potovat vse do Panamskega prekopa preostalih pet mesecev.

Petra pravi: “Teh deset mesecev je bilo neverjetno in polno doživetij, verjetno najboljša od vseh potovalnih zgodb, ki jih imam. Predvsem bi rada delila izkušnjo, kako je potovati sam in samo z nahrbtnikom. Čeprav se potovanja, ko ženske potuje sama, pridobivajo na popularnosti, je še zmeraj veliko predsodkov, predvsem pa straha. Rada bi delila pozitivne in negativne izkušnje.”

Dogodek se bo odvijal v angleščini.

O POTOVANJIH IZ DNEVNE SOBE
Poletja so lahko težka. Prijatelji na Facebooku ali Instagramu pošiljajo slike prelepih plaž, selfije z največjimi znamenitostmi sveta, včasih pa še kako sliko poletne romance… medtem ko sam tičiš v Ljubljani.

Za tiste, katere je plan preživeti poletje v Ljubljani, je naš dogodek priložnost, da lahko pobegnete na potovanje kar skozi našo prijetno dnevno sobo.

Vsak ponedeljek vabimo popotnike in pisce potopisnih blogov, da prek predavanj podoživijo, nas pa vzamejo s sabo, na svoje pretekle avanture. Delili bodo nasvete in ideje za naslednjo tvojo priložnost, ko pa res odideš na pot.

Ziferblat je prostor za druženje, kjer se plačuje čas. Velja, da je ena minuta = 5 centov. Za študente in dijake je 1 minuta = 4 cente.
Ker ne bi radi, da se vam mudi in si želimo, da si vzamete čas, bomo ure ustavili po 60 minutah.
