about

Whenever the author has returned from traveling her friends wanted to hear detailed accounts of her experiences. She started emailing these accounts. Many have kept copies of their favorite pieces and soon everyone wanted the author to compile them into a book.

From Alaska to Zanzibar, the author offers funny and detailed observations of the places, people, and cultures she has encountered. On a visit to Pompeii, she tells of frescoes of the various ways ancient Romans copulate. In Africa she thrilled to the spectacle of a lion kill of an impala in the wild, but was repelled by a cat with its kill of a rat in the alleys of Zanzibar.

On her 70th birthday, she celebrated with a solo walk of the 800 km Camino Santiago de Compostela from St. Jean Pied de Port in the French Pyrenees to Galicia in Spain. She got lost in the mountains on the first day, but the trek was smooth all the way from there.

After her husband passed in 2004 she continued to travel and reflected on her life. A lapsed Catholic, she took a Buddhist retreat in Tassajara trying to inject a spiritual dimension in her life, but she found the vegetarian meals and the mountains more alluring.

Along the way she made many friends, young and old, who enriched her life and who showed her that life is indeed beautiful!
