You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

When I finish my trip and have speaking engagements what are 5 topics I should focus on?
Comment by Jen from Still not in the U.S.
Hmm, 5 eh? I'm not sure about 5 individual topics, because they all kind of blend together. But some basics would be:<br /> -What you learned/obtained from this experience/how it's changed you<br /> -What you hope others will reap from your trip<br /> -What surprised you/what was how you expected<br /> -What it meant to you to take such a trip<br /> -What you hope to accomplish now that it's done/what you hope it will inspire others to do<br /> I think that's only 4 dashes but basically just talk about what you feel is important; what aspects you think people should hear

Oh that is 5, sweet.

Economy!<br /> Friendship!<br /> Hospitality!<br /> Gas prices!<br /> Get out and see your country cause Americans are over here dying for it.

Great question!<br /> <br /> 1. What (if anything) is similar among all of the people you met throughout your travel, and what that might mean about a "national character."<br /> <br /> 2. What is the hardest thing to let go of now that you have stopped traveling (the hospitality? the food? the car?).<br /> <br /> 3. If someone were to try to undertake a trip similar to this, what do you recommend they do/take/think? (Surely you have some things you would do differently; also, are there resources for the newbie traveler? How much money does one need?)<br /> <br /> 4. Be honest, what were the yucky(-est) and scary(-est) and sick(-est) moments. Everyone loves the funny/scary/sick stories!<br /> <br /> 5. What can we take away from your experience? Do you have any words of wisdom to share?
