She Creates Travel Gift Packages for the Holidays


For your JourneyKiddies...

This is two gifts in one! For children 8+ we suggest Explorer, the interactive talking globe that combines six fun games with interactive geography lessons. Just by touching this globe with its "magic pen," youngsters can access 1000's of world facts -- discover what time it is in any country, hear a sample of their music, learn about their money, find out how large or small the population is, and lots, lots more. It's no accident that this toy manufactured by Leapfrog is the winner of five educational awards.

Leapfrog has not forgotten the much younger children either. For little journeygirls and boys (3+) there's the Junior Explorer Globe. How clever and how perfect for a tot with an inquisitive mind. This electronic, interactive globe and "magic pen" allows kiddies to explore the world at their level discovering animals, music, languages and amazing places. Just touch the pen to any brightly coloured picture and let the fun begin. (

We can't leave out the guys...

For the sweet man in your life I suggest the title, The Travel Doctor: Your guide to staying healthy while you travel. This book is written by Mark Wise, adventurer and family doctor who specializes in travel and tropical medicine. It covers everything travellers need to know about maintaining physical and emotional well-being from the start of their journey to their post-travel concerns. Included are major topics such as inoculations, infectious diseases, culture shock, jet lag and safety issues. The writer's style is lighthearted and very easy to read. The Travel Doctor is also on Journeywoman's list of favorites because it includes comprehensive chapters on the medical needs of the female traveller, advice on travelling with kids as well as travelling to adopt. Good for you, Mark Wise -- Journeywoman salutes you! Website:

Now add the following very "hot" gift and your guy will love you forever. Leatherman offers a pocket-sized series of all-in-one contemporary stainless steel multi-tools. Journeywoman loves their new Juice series in bright, primary colors. Check for the S2 scissors unit in orange or the CS4 corkscrew and scissors model in blue.

P.S. Be sure to remind the recipient to pack his Leatherman in his checked luggage. It's much too terrific to have some official take it away during a customs check. Visit: for further information and the dealer nearest you.

A gift for friends who love to drive...

You can't miss with this one. Drive I-95 written by husband and wife team, Sandra Phillips and Stan Posner guides you exit by exit from Boston to the sunny Florida border and back. It contains every bit of practical information a driver needs and then some -- easy to read maps, 24-hr gas stations, interesting eats and sleeps along the way, radar traps, fun places to visit, and radio stations to listen to as you drive I-95. Add to that the book's entertaining anecdotes, fun trivia and travel tips and you have an absolute winner. For further information visit:  

Women's words on giving...

The fragrance always remains in the hand
that gives the rose.
(Heda Bejar, Peacemaking, 1989)

A cheerful giver does not count the cost
of what she gives. Her heart is set on pleasing
and cheering him to whom the gift is given.
(Julien of Norwich, Revelations of Divine Love, 1373)

We are rich only through what we give,
and poor only through what we refuse.
(Anne Sophie, The Writings of Madame Swetchine, 1869)

You cannot give to people
what they are incapable of receiving.
(Agatha Christie, Funerals are fatal, 1953)

There is only one real deprivation, I decided
this morning, and that is not to be able
to give one's gifts to those one loves most.
(May Sarton, Journal of a Solitude, 1973)

Happy holidays, everybody!
