Comments by Gloria

“I have been a freelance travel writer forever -sometimes very active, sometimes not so much. Also, I have been fortunate to have lived in S.E. Asia, Africa, Europe, Middle East and Caribbean, and I have traveled to over 100 countries. In recent times, I wrote my first book about a 7 month experience doing volunteer work in Africa. My second book is a lighthearted look at life as an expat it the Bahamas. Since my divorce I have decided my preferred method of travel is to backpack – kind of back to my roots. Furthermore, I am now doing a series of books “I Talked to Strangers in….”. They are in a journal format, where I went, what I did, what everything cost etc. Mainly, because I love the challenge of doing the things people do on tours – only doing it on my time, and figuring out how to do it on a budget. In the past year, I also started blogging, and my goal for this year is to make improvements in that area. I would speak about planning, budgeting, what to take, accommodation and transportation. As I travel I ask travelers I meet to share their best travel advise.”
