On the 30th of August, TEDxRVASalon teamed up with Allianz to present Beyond Our Borders at the HI Richmond Hostel. The event focused on the idea of travel and how we all experience it differently. The cozy living room area of the hostel made for a wonderful gathering space to share our travel stories and experiences. Discussions ranged from why we do or don’t travel, to the wonders of simply exploring our own hometowns. Though we usually go into detail about the many things we learned at our salons, this month we would instead like to point you to a recap written by an attendee from outside of our organizing team. Malik Hall wrote an in-depth article about our event for RVA Magazine! Check it out HERE!
