More about Susan

One of my most memorable trips - was a quick jaunt to Girdwood, Alaska. Though it was mid-January and people thought we were crazy, we found the extreme winter beauty to be breathtaking. From the aqua-colored ice of the glaciers to my first glimpse of the Northern Lights to the obstinate moose standing in the middle of the road with nothing to do but block our way, it was four days of pure delight.

Unusual travel moment? The time I was lost in Japan and a stranger boarded a train with me and rode forty-five minutes out of his way to deliver me safely to my destination. Yes, there are angels everywhere!

While traveling I always - let the trip take me.
