World Tourism Day

Today’ session of the Gabfest Club ("Window on America" (Dnipropetrovsk / Ukraine) was dedicated to the observance of the World Tourism Day. We have visited the official UN site and discussed the theme of the year 2015: "One Billion Tourists, One Billion Opportunities". We also mentioned the impact of tourism on societies – both positive and negative.
The most interesting part of the session was conversation on Ukrainian travel destinations. 

Our foreign volunteers – Mr. Eric and Mr. Jason- were present at the session and the club members were to recommend a tourist destination for them in Ukraine and explain why the place is unique. The recommended places ranged from popular tourist brands (Lviv, Kyiv, Carpathian Mountains, Crimea) to less known destinations – Poltava, Petrykivka village, Uzhgorod.
In return the foreign guests told about their recent trips to neighboring countries and asked about popular destinations for Ukrainians abroad.

The session had many funny moments and was quite challenging for the Club members as it required knowledge of cultural trivia.
Number of participants – 33 persons.
