Wherever I go women ask me, how do you do it, how do you travel everywhere all by yourself? For me, the answer is very simple – because I want to. That my desire and curiosity are stronger than the fear and every trip, near or far presents another opportunity for a grand adventure.
Growing up we did not have a car and my mother didn’t drive so we had to walk or take public transportation everywhere we went. That greatly restricted where we were able to go but it really helped me learn how to navigate in bus and train stations. I learned so much about how to get around to places we otherwise would not have been able to go.
Even then, my appetite for travel was tremendous. I remember sitting on the floor at the local library reading stories about people and the amazing places they lived. I would daydream that I was that elegant lady strolling through the streets of Paris or walking along the beach on some distant island. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that someday it would really come true and yet that was me having dinner in London last month and walking though the Scottish countryside.
I have had so many incredible experiences and now I would like to help other women learn how to do it as well. All you need is a willing spirit and you can have the adventure of a lifetime!
