I love to travel. As I look back on my life I see my trips, be they months long or just a few days, as sign posts in a sea of time. I can easily recall the distinct smell of spring in the South of France in 1997 when I spent a semester studying in Nice. The fall of 1998 is forever etched in my mind as the time I discovered the rugged beauty of Costa Rica. I know exactly what I did in November of 1999 because I had just landed in South Africa. 2000 – 2003 is filled with sweet memories of Asia as I spent those years living in Taiwan and roaming around China, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, Mongolia and Australia. While I have trouble recalling last Tuesday, these travel memories fill my past with incredibly vivid markers. This is why I truly believe that travel is part of a life well lived.
Why Backroads some of you have asked? It’s the lure of active travel that has me hooked on this incredible company. A few family members have worked as Guides with Backroads and tell incredible stories of the way groups bond during the journey and how each individual brings something unique and special to a trip. I’ve spoken with others who have been guests of Backroads and they universally exclaim that it was the best time and money they ever spent. They felt alive and strong and came home exhilarated and eager to book the next one. While it’s always wonderful to lay on a beach and rest, sometimes the body needs movement and exertion. We need to feel connected and alive.
To get your hands dirty and walk in the side streets and back roads of a new country is to have an intimate and personal experience with it. Not simply observing the scenery, you become part of it.
