Tell us about yourself:
Longtime travel writer, travel advocate, and international caregiver. I worked as a travel journalist for almost 45 years, then started Travelers United, now the largest travel advocacy group in DC. As a caregiver, I had the opportunity to travel with my mother who lived to 96 years or age and with another friend who lived to be 86. We explored the USA and Europe together.
