When I was 25 years old I embarked on my first solo trip to Mexico with a backpack and a Spanish/English dictionary.  Since then, I’ve been travelling independently for over 25 years, to places like Guatemala, Jordan, India, Laos, Cuba, Ireland, Cuba, Argentina, Uruguay and China. I’ve taught English in Kerala, India; interviewed lesbian activists in Hong Kong; camped in the desert at Wadi Rum, Jordan. Most of my travels have been solo, and this has opened up many opportunities to make local friends. I’ve given workshops on how to travel solo as well as travel writing seminars.
