Carolyn has traveled to 251 countries-territories and continues to travel. She enjoys seeing and learning about each country and how all the world’s people live and are making it. The header image is Carolyn in Udaipur, India at the Oberoi Udaivillas Hotel (ranked #1 in the world at the time). The hotel’s surprise make good to Carolyn was a complete Indian festival of around 25 people and animals all in costume, a traditional Indian greeting ceremony. The hotel gave Carolyn this surprise to make up for not getting lunch to her one day. Read the story called “Always Ask for the Caparisoned Elephant.” under India.
Carolyn is a member of Traveler’s Century Club (tcc.org), an international travelers club for members who have been to more than 100 countries and challenges them to visit a total of 325 countries-territories. She never planned to keep count of the countries/territories she visited. But, she found it to be a fun challenge and a great way to learn geography, history, and culture. And it is a great way to get educated on everything about another country/territory. The most fun, however, is the wonderful people she met along the way. They all loved teaching and showing Carolyn about their country/territory and how they do things their way. All people in all countries/territories were so gracious and welcoming to her.

It was Cissy Swearingen of Tauck.com who suggested Carolyn start a blog. “The reason I thought you should start a blog and share your travel experiences is really very simple. I have never known anyone with as huge a passion for travel as you.
