Today, I am honored to be a guest blogger at WeSaidGoTravel. I wrote my article in response to the prompt, “Independence: A Place You Feel Free.” As an American Jew, I explored my reactions to visiting Israel on several occasions. I was limited to 800 words so I could only provide a brief overview of my thoughts. Had my word limitation not been restricted, I would have elaborated further.
Previous to this posting, I was a guest blogger at WeSaidGoTravel back in February. At that time, I wrote, “Naharayim: A Paradigm of the Mideast Conflict.”
If you’re interested in learning more about my travel experiences, select the Worldwide Travel category in the right hand margin or visit the Boulder Jewish News website to read my article, “Travel: How to Maximize a Brief Cruise Stop in Israel.”
I initially met Lisa Niver Rajna when I was looking for educators to review my book. I sent a copy to Wandering Educators. Jessie Voigts forwarded an electronic copy to Lisa who at the time was traveling in India. Both Jessie and Lisa kindly reviewed my book. To see Jessie’s review click here and Lisa’s here.
Lisa is an accomplished travel agent, blogger, speaker, science teacher and member of the Traveler’s Century Club, a unique travel club limited to travelers who have visited one hundred or more countries. Lisa and her husband George are currently completing a sabbatical year traveling throughout Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar, India and Nepal. If you are interested in exploring the world, I recommend visiting their extraordinary site.
My memoir was a finalist in the Travel category for the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, the 2013 International Book Awards, and the 2013 National Indie Book Excellence Awards.
