Footstep #1: Setting OffPart 1- Engage with Paul’s Journey
listened to a welcome message from Paul, recorded in Turkey in August, 2014.
watched a video in which Paul explains why he is taking a 7-year walk around the world
read an article, called a dispatch, by Paul on the National Geographic Out of Eden Walk website: Sole Brothers
and responded to a quick survey, answering What caught your attention or interested you about Paul's article? What questions or wonders do you now have?
Part 2- Setting Off
picked an avatar
and wrote a few sentences about themselves: Write a few lines about yourself and describe three things that you enjoy doing. What's the story behind your choice of avatar? What do you find most interesting or exciting about Paul's walk from what you have learned about it so far? Is there anything in particular you would like Paul to look out for or pay attention to as he walks?
