Storytime! “Bon Voyage: Travel & Adventures”



Take a trip down memory lane and explore your TRAVEL STORIES at this fun and interactive event hosted by Storytelling Coach Liz Morrison.

From epic adventures halfway across the world to a moment you saw your own city with new eyes, heavily scheduled trips to all the tourists' hotspots to meandering adventures with no itinerary, every trip is a unique memory that shapes our worldview.

Tonight, we're exploring BON VOYAGE: Travel & Adventures!

Travel is one of the best ways to expand your horizons and learn how we are all connected. It forces us to be our most authentic selves, having to navigate unfamiliar territory, communicate with new people, and appreciate how beauty exists everywhere. Travel can be exciting, annoying, awe-inspiring, and life-changing.

Come share tales of the trips and travel companions that made an impact on you. Where would you go back to in a heartbeat? Who did you meet who made your experience better? What place will you never forget?

Through the lens of this relatable theme, we’ll explore our personal stories and discover our shared connections. Here’s what to expect for our time together:

🗣 THEME INTRO: We’ll explore our theme through easy games, group discussions, and a featured storyteller.

💬COMMUNITY CONVERSATIONS: We’ll get into small groups and answer fun, thought-provoking question prompts to spark memories and find things we have in common.

🎤 STORYTIME! EXCELLENT!: 3 folks will have the opportunity to get up on stage and share their theme stories with everyone.

At Storytime, everyone is encouraged to share, listen, and engage. Come swap stories and spark deeper relationships with fellow Groundfloor community members and other storytelling enthusiasts. You might even meet a new friend!

We can't wait to hear all of your amazing BON VOYAGE: Travel & Adventure stories and create a memorable evening of storytelling and connection.
