Delightful little travel/biography type of thing. Hope she has a sequel! ( )

I really liked this book. It felt less like reading a novel and more like reading a series of short stories on the same, general topic. Overall, I found the main character to be interesting and found myself drawn in to her quest to fulfill her dreams. This is an easy read and you can probably finish it in a day. ( )

How a Lifelong Dream turned into the Adventure of a Lifetime: A True Story

Review myself? blushing here... it is my true story. I was taught that when you fall, you get up and start again.
Inspiration to go on is found all around you - Open your eyes and see for yourself.

My writer's objective is to share and help others by encouraging them to overcome their fears and achieve inner peace. If you believe that in this life, your mission is to challenge yourself to be the best person you can be, then I think you will find a connection to me through my first book.
I look forward to connecting with you and I know that the journey will be a pleasure.

When you wake up in the morning, treat every new day as a new adventure.

Through the windows of this book -
You may see a glimpse of me.
A nod, a smile, take a look -
Your mirror image, maybe?

This book is dedicated to my family. And especially to my parents who bravely crossed the Atlantic, eventually had me and then taught me so many of life's lessons from near and afar. It is also dedicated to all the dreamers of the world. Since you never know where your life will take you - Dare to dream!
First words
In 1975, at the age of about 8, it seemed that everyone around me was keeping a diary.
Introduction: In life, we assume many different roles and identities, some because we want to and others because we have to.
Everything happens for a reason
