Saturday, July 14, 2 pm, Community Meeting Room, Main Library

Getting a job straight out of college is the status quo. When are Americans given the time to truly experience and embrace other cultures throughout the world? Sure, we get 2-3 weeks off per year; but is that really enough? For Brian Michalski, the answer was a resounding ‘no.’

If you have always dreamt of long-term world travel but never thought it plausible, allow Brian to guide you through the process. Come along on his 22-month solo backpacking journey of working and volunteering in Southeast Asia, Australia, India, Cuba and more. Get insider info about budgeting, utilizing travel apps, embracing culture shock, realities of hostel life, coping with inevitable setbacks, visa applications and more so that you, too, can travel like a pro.
