Based on this Canadian
hockey player's commitment to community work, I think we might
travel together to make a difference. For example, Hayley
travelled to Rwanda to promote the Right to Play initiative.
Also, I hope Hayley would spot me a ticket to one of her hockey
What better travel companion than one who is personable,
outgoing, willing to talk to strangers and an entrepreneur
to boot! We'd meet all sorts of interesting people, and be
able to bounce business ideas off one another. Best of all,
Oprah is 'not short of a bob or two' and would happily pick
up the traveling costs.
She's intelligent, funny and
has a unique perspective centered around music that could
provide a one-of-a-kind experience. Her musical contacts -
well known and not - would create opportunities to be a part
of amazing music and life experiences everywhere.
Having lived all over the
world, she speaks at least five languages and probably knows
someone interesting anyplace on the globe. Her stories could
make even the longest layover palatable. What fun that would
I'd like to feel this Belgian/French nun's generosity,
share a tiny piece of her life experience, feel her spirituality
on top of everything... from the top of the world.

I admire her greatly
as an articulate and intelligent young woman who is bridging
the divide between traditional Muslim culture and the “new
modern” Muslim woman. She is using her position to uplift
Muslim women everywhere.
Not only is she funny, but she has lived through so
much -- and come out a stronger woman, despite the many
tragedies she has suffered. I would be endlessly entertained!
A woman who's completely comfortable
with herself, in any surroundings. In fact, I read she used
her car as her personal space to write poetry. I think she'd
be a great companion for a journey woman like me.
Bessie started riding
motorcycles when she was 16. She was the first African American
woman to ride solo across the United States when she was 19.
Also Europe, Brazil and Haiti in the 30's and 40's. She was
It makes a lot of sense—she can go anywhere, has
been recognized as a Global Goodwill Ambassador for her
humanitarian work and seems both interesting and interested
in the world around her.
Can you imagine the fun and
laughs you would have? Anywhere you travel would be through
different eyes and perspective . I‘d have a stitch in
my side the whole time. Laughing is Contagious!
She is well read and well traveled.
She appears to have a pleasant, easy going air about her and
having been a diplomat in her own right, would be welcomed
wherever we traveled.
She's the editor of the Huffington Post so she'd have
an opinion and a story for all the different places we meet.
She's a humanitarian, an informer, and a teacher.
She is rip-roaringly funny,
loves food, new adventures, and she's a story teller. She
can put up with rough conditions and make light of it and
yet appreciates all the luxury money can buy. A perfect, easy,
I've always enjoyed this actor's quirky humor and know
we would never stop laughing. And . . . I might get to meet
her brother!!!!! Bonus all around!
My first thought was my daughter since we both love
the same things, it makes it easy. But she’s only
famous to me!
I’d love to travel with Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat,
Pray, Love). I envy her moxie to do what she did and believe
she’d make the ideal travel partner.
She has traveled to so many amazing destinations; I think
it would be fabulous to see Ireland with someone who loves
it just as much as I do.
It would be heaven to tramp through the 'quiet' jungle
to view her beloved Chimps, while soaking up her vast knowledge
of the wild, plus savouring the serenity of her personality.
She is an amazing writer, an experienced traveler and
a woman who lives her life empowering others to travel and
live their lives to the fullest.

This Queen and traveller in the Middle Ages had access
to castles, churches, convents and more. For the ultimate
insider view of the Christian Kingdoms of the Middle East,
she was the one to accompany.
Anne M Sherlock
50 years ago Anne wrote 'Gift from the Sea' and it is
as valid today as it was when she wrote it. Her unflappable
adventuring by air - as pilot, or by sea, provided a amazing
I would have loved to learn from
her - to witness her kindness and generosity. She would have
shown me the simple and good life.
Our country is a great melting pot and she is one fine
example of a naturalized citizen. Not only is she intelligent
and well educated and an experienced world traveler, she was
our first female secretary of state and the first secretary
of state to visit North Korea. She's a highly regarded public
speaker and a fine example to all women. Her credentials go
on and on and on. In addition she a wife and mother and has
an amazing collection of pins!
Ruth G. Sikes
This Queen of the Desert and I would make excellent
travelling partners. Although she was a proper Victorian
lady, she climbed mountains, rode camels across arid deserts
with T.E. Lawrence and Winston Churchill, and played a major
role in creating the modern state of Iraq. Go, Gertrude!
