Travel "back in the day" and exploring Soviet Russia

Jan 08, 06:00 AM

Erin is joined by Valika who tells the story of how she boarded her first transatlantic flight in the early 60s at age 13 - completely alone. She shares her experiences from traveling by car through Soviet Russia to connecting with other travelers on trains, without the help of social media!

The way that we travel is constantly changing.
Just 20 years ago, for example, travelers didn't have Google Maps to guide them, or social media to keep them connected to family and friends at home.

Join Erin as she chats with a fellow solo woman traveler, Valika Kunkel. Valika tells the story of how she boarded her first transatlantic flight in the early 60s at age 13 - completely alone. She shares her experiences from traveling by car through Soviet Russia to connecting with other travelers on trains, without the help of social media!
