Conversation Corps Russia--A Tale Of Two Cities

Posted by Randy LeGrant | Sep 9, 2011 10:31:00 AM

Meet Plan Go logoOn August 30, Katie embarked on a year long journey through all 15 countries of the former Soviet Union.  She got the idea by attending a Meet, Plan, Go event last fall.

In one of her Blog posts, Katie wrote that "The next nationwide Meet, Plan, Go! event will take place October 18, 2011 in 17 cities throughout North America (up from 10 last year!): Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New Orleans, New York City, Orlando, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Washington DC and Toronto, Canada.  If you have given even the slightest bit of thought to stepping back from your career to travel, I highly recommend you try to attend."Katie

We hope you will follow Katie because for 2 months of her journey, she will be on the Conversation Corps Russia program.  One month she will live with a family in Moscow and tutor them in English, then she moves outside St. Petersburg for a month and does the same thing.

Katie Going Global, wandering along a road less traveled is a great read.  Enjoy!
