When 24-year-old Lucas (SkoutID: flightattendant91) joined Skout a year and a half ago, he was excited to chat with people all over the world and learn about their cultures. Lucas, who is from Brazil and recently moved from Brasilia to Curitiba, was also looking forward to becoming fluent in English and practicing the German he’d studied for years.
Lucas decided to take his interests in other cultures offline, and this past summer he traveled to three different countries, where he met Skouters in person.
Lucas had been saving for this big trip for three years, but he knew it was time to actually plan it when he’d become close with some people he’d met on Skout.
“I talk to them every single day!” Lucas has said about some of his Skout friends.
After all that chatting, planning and saving, this summer Lucas traveled to Holland, Germany and Russia.
He spent a few weeks in Holland before he headed to Germany where he met up with Dmitri. After spending eight days in Germany seeing the sights, he went to St. Petersburg, Russia. In St. Petersburg, he met up with his best friend Irina who showed him her favorite spot in the city, Peterhof Park. Ten days later he went to Moscow. There he met up with Masha and Anastacia who showed him the Red Square and the Kremlin. All in all, a pretty awesome trip!
“Through Skout I’ve met people that have changed part of my life, how I think and see things, and also some people that I will carry forever in my heart.”
