I am a seasoned and passionate traveler. I have traveled all over the world, visiting all 7 continents and over 60 countries.
I have been traveling since I was a child. This has led to the development of wanderlust in later life, sated only by traveling to a different country at least once a year.
In 2015, I set out on a 3 month solo trip around the world. I visited all 7 continents and about 23 countries. I had many adventures along the way and returned home with a new perspective on life.
I love adventure and have become quite the adrenaline junkie. I have climbed to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, bungee jumped from the highest bungee in the world, hang glided in Rio, and white-water rafted in Thailand.
Viewing monuments and jumping off bridges is very enjoyable. The best part of traveling for me, however, is meeting new people and experiencing their cultures. I consider myself more of a traveler than an tourist.
I love traveling because it opens up the mind and stimulates creativity. It’s the best way to learn that there are many ways of doing things. Get out of your comfort zone.
My latest book is a collection of African fables titled The Hare and Baboon and Other Stories. It is available for sale here.
I have learned quite a few tips and tricks that make traveling easier. Some are general while others are specific to certain countries or regions of the world. Tips are also posted in the Blog section.
I am available to share my adventures around the world; encourage women and youth to travel; lecture on historic sites, especially in Africa; and discuss the impact that travel lessons can have on life.
One doesn’t travel the world without amassing thousands of photos. Some photos are linked in the Countries section to give you an idea of what you can experience in various countries. For more, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
