Podcast 52: "Travel is the gift I give to myself"


Posted by

Thelma & Louise Member

This week we speak to Jeanine, a New Yorker who after a tragic event promised herself she would go back to school and travel the world. She tells us about her first trip outside the US to Paris, how she gazed in awe at the Mona Lisa and the many other fine pieces of art in the Louvre, how she ate sandwiches sitting on steps near the Eiffel Tower, and how she walked up and down the Champs Elysees meandering in and out of its shops and restaurants. It fuelled her hunger for travel even more and she hasn't looked back. "Every breath, every moment is a gift and we can't get back the day before".

Her next trip is in spring 2016, a solo trip to Prague, Vienna, Budapest and Munich. It's fair to say that she is super excited about it. Jeanine would love to meetup with other Thelma and Louise members, so get in touch ladies.

Her motto is quite simple: "You only have one life to live here on earth, so travel as much as possible. When others ask why in the world would I travel alone? My answer is always: Travel is the gift I give to myself, and the memories and experiences will last me a lifetime".
