The Luxury Trail
I have always admired the great female explorers of the 19th and early 20th Centuries. Unlike their male counterparts they weren’t satisfied with sticking a flag in the ground. They immersed themselves in the communities. Like me, most relied on their income from writing to support themselves and their causes.
My LVT suitcases, Mac Air & ostrich Birkin are a far cry from the khaki canvas kit bag slung over my shoulder in the 80‘s but time has moved on as have I. I can’t imagine turning left upon boarding a plane any more than I can avoid engaging myself with the communities I visit.
My ex-husband suggested I fly economy and give the money to charity, but then I wouldn’t go at all and this is what I do - I go.
