Travel Pros Pick Their Favorite
How a travel book changed my
I�d like other women in the JW Network to know about A
Journey of One�s Own (Uncommon Advice for the Independent
Woman Traveler) by Thalia Zepatos. Thalia's book gave me the courage
to "jump those fences" that we all get close to and then bolt for
what ever reasons. Her last line in the book says it all.... "just
go, you'll be fine".Ten years ago I ventured overseas alone for
my first trip and did "just fine" and got hooked on travel in a
way that I'd never been before. Since then I drove old cars and
saved all my spare money and went overseas each year.Three years
ago, in the process of posting a travel question on a travel site,
I made the acquaintance of a fellow traveler with many of my same
interests, including a passion for Egypt and the Middle East. We
e- mailed travel advice back and forth for about six weeks, and
then began to learn a bit more about each other and how we had come
to this point. After nine months of trans-Pacific courting, I left
the USA and came to Australia for a visit and the rest is history.
I've relocated here in Melbourne (with my honey) and couldn't be
happier! So there you go. Blame it on Thalia!
I love the Journeywoman newsletter...
Take it from a woman who knows. I receive a lot of fancy travel
newsletters but yours is the best because it isn�t trying to sell
me anything and I just love all of those tips especially -for-women.
The one about "Drip" the NY coffee shop that is also a dating service
was fabulous. My girlfriends and I will try it out on our next visit.
Keep it up. Thank you!

I am constantly on the
internet and have never found a newsletter that I have been so inspired
to contact and say Cheers to! I think it's an excellent idea, very
well put together and full of useful information as well as interesting

So sorry I didn't hear
about your organization (and free newsletter) sooner. I LOVE travelling,
solo or otherwise and I've already gleamed some valuable info for
my upcoming weekend trip to NYC in July.
Nothing I have come across
has given me such a good feeling as seeing what you have to offer
in your free travel tip newsletter especially for women. Thank you
so much. I found what I wanted and what I hadn't thought to look
for. I particularly appreciated the tip of giving shampoo samples
to a battered wives shelter. Much thanks from Jerusalem.
What more can I say, except,
I LOVE IT!!!
