1/21(Sat.) Travel sharing & Further discussion (Host:Ketty)

文章Ketty » 週一 1月 16, 2017 11:21 am

Hi all,

Today's meeting runs a little bit differently. please note that meeting place is not the regular one.

Session I
In this part, I'm going to brief the travel experience with history, geography, cuisine , attractions and something interesting I found for Germany.
During the sharing, if anyone has any questions, just open your mouth to interrupt me anytime, I'll be glad to answer them. :D

Session II
To extend my sharing, I'm also interested in participants' travel experiences. please prepare the following questions in advance and discuss with your group members.

Questions for Discussion:
1. What’s your most unforgettable travel experience? (Attending a big event,Viewing astonishing scenery,Experiencing extreme sport,etc.)

2. Have you encountered something unexpected disturbing your travel plan? Especially for unfortunate part. (Missed flight/passport,Had money stolen, etc.)
How did you work out? And what's your lesson learned?

3. What kind of way do you prefer to record your travel memories? (Blogging , Videoing, Collecting magnets, Sending postcards back to Taiwan, etc.)

4. A Chinese proverb says "it is better to travel ten thousand miles than to read ten thousand books" but someone said "Travel makes a wise man better, but a fool worse".Do you think there's a correlation between two sayings? Or these are totally different thoughts?

Good to have a chance to know Germany more. It's a pity that our German friend was not with us now, or we could have more inside stories. (I forgot his name, sorry. Could anyone tell me what his name is?)

Personally, I'd like to know something about this:

Our German friend's name is Bernd

The photo must be 黑森林. When Wendy and I travelled in Germany in 2015, we didn't visit this famous attraction. Maybe Ketty did, she will share it with us.

Before traveling to any new foreign destinies, it might be a good idea to check unique local cultures and social rules beforehand – the last thing we want is to break their code of conduct unwittingly and put ourselves behind the eight ball.

Here comes ten German culture do’s and don’ts. Some of the advice look sensible and helpful. Some others are obviously delivered from American viewpoints and don’t apply to us. The rest are simply hard to believe, such as clapping means disapproval in schools and wishing Germans an early birthday brings them bad luck. Are these pet peeves just too trivial or personalized to worry about? I don’t know. Since I haven’t been there yet, I will give the travel experts the benefit of the doubt for the time being.

No offence at all. Charlie is totally normal; his friends are the weird ones. But, I like his friends better. :lol: Did you check out the other 3 episodes? The songs are good, I assure you, even if you think the plots are silly. (and they ARE silly.)

Many many thanks to Ketty for her amazing hosting. I wonder how many hours she had spent on the PPT-- it's so colorful and well organized. Really great job!!!

It's good for me to see many beautiful things of Germany in the meeting. I won't be able to go there in this life, though. They have my pension deducted, so the money left will be for the sickbed only when I have cancer in my aged retired life. Guess I will have nothing to share this coming Tuesday. :cry:
