“ICC×World Travel Study Club” Travel Friend Exchange Cafe Calling All Future Backpackers! -The Basics of Solo Traveling- (Oct.25)

What do you think when you hear the word “backpacker”?

“What’s fun about travelling abroad alone?”
“The Middle East, Africa; those places seem dangerous.”
“I’m interested in backpacking but don’t know how to do it or where to start…”

In this event, the expert members of the Waseda University’s one and only official solo travelling circle “Waseda University World Travel Study Club” will introduce what a backpacker is and answer your questions about the mysteries of backpacking!

The circle members include:
– A girl who just came back safely from a 7 day trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway!
– A boy from the School of Political Science who explored the deep Amazon jungle!
– A person who completed a tour of the Silk-Road using only the land route!

The members will present about their own backpacking adventures and you can ask them any questions that you might have during cafe time.
Also please share your memories of traveling with us too!

World travel, travelling alone, backpacking, international communication, the adventures of Waseda students.
If you are interested in any of these then come to the ICC lounge on the 1st floor of building 3!
There will also be a quiz where the winners may receive a special prize.

After joining this event, you too might feel compelled to travel abroad!

Waseda World Travel Study Club

Founded in 1959, this year, Waseda University’s official “solo travel” circle is celebrating its 60th anniversary.
Their flagship activities are the “Homecoming Report” where they talk about their solo travel experiences, and a one week “summer camp” where students attempt to travel together on foot without using their mobile phone or any money.
Also, for their yearly “Waseda World Travel Study Club Cooking Event” the students are divided into groups and make foods from different regions.
The members share their travel memories and future plans as well as tips on how to enjoy the backpacker life.
