Travel is one of those unique experiences where the joy increases as time goes by. I was recently looking at photos of my early years of travel – in my early thirties, lots of energy, and everything was so exciting. It made me smile. Yes, I looked much younger and thinner, and I also looked happy because I was. I stood in Westminster Abbey!!! As a former English teacher – it still gives me chills. I walked on the Great Wall of China – (and I remember the years that no one was even allowed to go to China). I took a flatboat down the Mekong River, and the people were lovely and smiling, and I will remember the day the rest of my life.
