AFP 17 – Lauren Cutlip and Benny Lewis: Lauren’s Esperanto

On this episode I am super excited to welcome Lauren and Benny to the podcast, I had been trying to get Benny on the show for a good while to talk about his book, but due to a busy schedule he was unavailable. Then by the time we set up an interview in Berlin he had already been asked just about any possible question about the book, so I had to think deep in order to provide an angle where we could learn something from Benny, but without it being him responding to the same old questions he had been asked time and time again.Continue reading

My comprehensive Polyglot Gathering Berlin trip report – part 3

Welcome to my Berlin trip report. I decided to write a very comprehensive trip report, in an attempt to try and recreate my own participation in the event.

This way my hope is that people who were unable to attend can at least get a feel for just how incredible the event was. This is part 3 of a multi part story and you can expect a new chapter every other day.

PS. I apologize for not having more pictures, I usually don't take many photos when I'm travelling around.Continue reading

Polyglot Berlin is over – Airport thoughts about the event!

Wow. That probably sums up the experience I have had the last week. As I'm sitting in Berlin Schönefeld Airport, heavily sleep deprived, I thought I would write down some of my thoughts about the crazy week that is Polyglot Gathering Berlin 2014.

First of all I must try and verbalise an incredibly congratulations to the main organizers: Judith, Martin and Chuck. Leaning on experience of Esperanto events and also the polyglot conference in Berlin these great people took it upon themselves to organise a Berlin gathering, and save for a few technical problems here and there the event was masterfully and professionally done.Continue reading
