Island hopping adventure in the Indian Ocean

Winter 2019

January 18 to January 31, 2019

Mauritius, Comoros, Seychelles…

will add three more countries to my list, raising the number to 186 in the world that I have visited.  I teach and encourage travel as a lifestyle, searching for ways to incorporate it into everyone’s lives in a sustainable way. Using the magic of persuasion, I eliminate the initial fear travelers may have when it comes to destinations that may seem so far out of reach but are actually easy to visit.
