She would open my eyes to
the beauty of the land down under including the incredible
bird life - pink & grey gallah parrots, beautiful cockatoos,
noisy lovable lorikeets and the amazing laughing
kookaburrah. We would also do a 'walkabout' and learn the
history of the Aborigine.
An extraordinary woman: perceptive,
talented and feisty, with a sense of adventure and a passion
for justice, art and life. I know I would see the world through
an incredible lense with Maya Angelou by my side.
The woman who journalists called
'the female Laurence of Arabia' as she was one of the first
English women to travel into the Middle East. Her unconventionality
and intelligence made her a insightful commentator on the
places she visited.
It would be a thrill and privilege to be in the company
of this brilliant and accomplished lady. I am sure I would
bring some of her wisdom home with me along with my travel
Far from the glare of cameras and press, I’d
love to travel with Oprah along the breathless beauty of the
Nam Ou river in northern Laos or the sand dunes of Mongolia’s
Gobi. Imagine: Oprah, anonymous adventuress in Asia.
She seems like she wouldn't be taken by any scam artists
while traveling in foreign countries plus she has a great
sense of humour.
I think she was a brave women
who took risks and did what she wanted to do. She pushed the
boundaries society had placed on her and I think she was her
own person. I believe she is one of the greatest women adventurers
and she would motivate me to push beyond my fears and just
Not only would she be a savvy traveler after visiting
practically everywhere in the world (multiple times!), but
she knew how to do it in style and panache.
Travelling nudges me out of my comfort zone,
allowing me to experience the best of every city. Despite
my shyness, I have met many friendly people on my travels.
I could get more out of my journeys by learning from the best.
A South African and survivor of a brutal rape attack,
her deep courage is a light for all those who may be a little
nervous to travel alone. To travel with her would be to
have a light in darkness always.

Her adventures defied norms of her time. In 1918, disguised
as a beggar, she walked to Lhasa when westerners were forbidden.
Her courage, intellect, and indomitable spiri, would make
traveling with her inspiring, educational, adventurous,
She is intelligent, poised,
confident and any travel opportunity in her company would
be a very memorable one. Her status as First Lady would provide
opportunity and excitement for both of us. In addition, we
would experience travel in a very unique way. I would also
have the opportunity to be accompanied by the Secret Service
and have absolutely no travel worries or concerns. I really
wish this experience could happen!
She was a pioneer among pioneers
as the first white woman to cross the United States over what
is now known as the Oregon Trail. What an adventure this would
have been in the 1830s. I have long admired her for this feat.

with her in the Middle East. Her Western upbringing combined
with her many years in Jordan give her a unique perspective
of the history and culture of the Islamic world.

in International Conflict. And Ms. Amanpour would be the
perfect partner to have as I explore the globe from a most
untourist like propestive.
The woman knows her way around
outer space. I'm quite confident she'd know how to get anywhere
She would keep me entertained and shed a whole new light
I read the book "Eat Pray Love" and thought
it sounded like she had loads of fun.

It doesn't get any better than this pilot, the original
Journeywoman! The whole getting lost in the ocean thing would
be a bit of a downer, but a little risk is good for the soul.
She's intelligent, seems funny, lively
and we are both lawyers and wine lovers. What could go wrong?
She's a CBC journalist with unique perspectives and
inquisitive approach to global journalism. She sees the
world differently than many people, and that kind of fresh
take on places and their people is something I value. Plus,
she seems totally fearless!
She is an inspiring woman and human
being. Her words are a gift from God. I would love to travel
with her and just have continous conversations about our destinations
on the trip and in life.
I would love to go visit Egypt in style with
her because the trip she recently organized to Australia
was incredible. We would go watch the sunset at the pyramids,
cruise down the Nile, take in all that beauty in high

the sites around the world where she has influenced conservation
and community development.
