Travelogues – Tampa and Israel

In Event, The Travelogues on April 9, 2014 at 3:28 am

On Friday, April 4th, we heard “Stories of Exploration” from Tampa and Israel. We also had a postcard swap, where audience members could fill out a vintage postcard, drop their address in a fishbowl, and receive a postcard in return from someone else at the event. Old Tampa Book Company brought books featuring Tampa and Israel. Profile Racing and History Bike Tampa showcased Tampa’s cycling opportunities.

Matt Coplon shared stories and photos of seeing Tampa’s details and taking advantage of the abandoned during BMX rides with his friends, and Randy Rosenthal showed us the contradictions of Israel– both its stereotypes and its surprises. Stop and look around your hometown. Enjoy it. Take a closer look at what you think you know. Try to hold two ideas in your head at once. Let the good outweigh the bad. These are the ideas, lessons, and images we were shown that night. Below are a few photos and the audio if you’d like to take a first listen, or a second. See you on July 11 for “Tour Stories”.
