Description
Magnetically written by former CEO of a North Carolina Girl ScoutCouncil and award winning CEO for the Western New York chapter of a national arts-in-education organization, this uniquely engaging travel journal describes four keys to unlocking personal and spiritual fulfillment: solitude, introspection, courage, and commitment. Through a series of compelling travel essays and deeply thoughtful memoirs, Janice Booth draws readers into each adventure ranging from a solo hike through Northern California to galloping across the fields of Ireland to a short stint with the Circus Arts learning the flying trapeze and shares her secrets to a fuller life through traveling alone. Step by step, she demonstrates why leaving everything and everyone behind for a few days (or more ) is the best path to inner strength, confidence, and true self-knowledge.
