Festival of the Pacific is a celebration of travel and transformation hosted by We Said Go Travel and the University of Pennsylvania. The theme, “Living Without Regret: Travel, Love and Success: Make your Dreams a Reality” will be presented in a series of live talks held in Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Guam, Oahu and Los Angeles.

Join Penn graduate Lisa Niver Rajna (C’89) and her husband George Rajna – founders of We Said Go Travel – for an inside look at long-term exotic international travel across Asia. They will share their travel expertise, read an excerpt from their new memoir, “Traveling in Sin,” and provide information about We Said Go Travel’s writing contest, and upcoming community. The Rajnas will also reveal why Myanmar holds a special place in their hearts, and why Lisa states: “The Shwedagon Pagoda is my favorite place on the planet.” Lisa and George have been living abroad since July 2012. Following the live talks, join them for a webinar on October 23, 2013 focusing on their journey in Myanmar.

We would like to recognize the Festival of the Pacific Founding Partners: LACOT, Dave’s Travel Corner, Wandering Educators, Richard Bangs Quest for Adventure, and NokiaConnects.
