FromThe Trail Lady

Travel - it opens the mind and gives us a new perspective in life. Leave your comfort zone at home. Ride a chicken bus, a local train or just plain walk. Meet new people, explore new cultures and learn about different religions. You will come home refreshed, fearless and optimistic. The world is a beautiful place, worth exploring, worth protecting and worth loving.

My feet get itchy when they've been planted too long. I'll share my travel stories.
