Past Smalltalk When Traveling

Hi Sebastian,

This is first time actually contacting you, or anybody through blog for that matter. But you make it almost too easy(you must be bombarded with e-mail, good luck!).

I'm interested to know your strategy or preference on maximizing meaningful conversations abroad or even back home. I mean do you have any particular tactic or is it mostly random. Any public places or events that stir up conversations with strangers, any small talk lines or questions(etc. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?) that lead to insight and good conversation.

I'm from Finland and I'm going to travel a bit in asia(Okinawa, Seoul, Katmandu, Bhutan) and I find conversations as the best way to learn and experience different cultures. It would be such a waste to do it randomly if it there's is a way to do it most efficient way.

If you have any book recommendations, please make them available in amazon.co.uk with your affiliate id I would be happy to support you somehow.

Designer Talk - Nevena


Meet Nevena, a perfectionist, a sensitive soul and an impulsive, energetic designer. Her dresses are created with the client at their heart, drawing together some of the world’s most exquisite fabrics and her own distinctive, carefully proportioned designs to offer a bespoke, refined couture wardrobe to make you look and feel nothing less than beautiful. Nevena grew up in an artistic and academic family in Sofia, Bulgaria, and learned to sew in her childhood, helping her mother, a teacher and a talented dressmaker.

Why Couture?

Because in a world where everything can be (and in fact is) produced in billions of pieces and sold to the masses, nothing matters more than one thing (dress) which has been especially made for you. With all the care and attention an entire team of craftsmen could possibly invest/put into it.
