Overview

Memories of a Detour to Turkey is the second in a series of travel books by Marjory Harris, an engaging and energetic ninety-three year old. Turkey was Marjory's original destination, the 1970 Experiment in International Living conference was being held there. When she found she couldn't fly directly to Turkey, she took out her wish list of countries to visit and things to do, and planned her second around-the-world trip. On her way to Turkey, she "detoured" to Denmark and Holland, cruised up the Rhine River and down the Danube-the latter turning out somewhat less than ideal-and revisited Iran, Japan, and Hawaii.

Marjory tells a personal travel story. Of her first EIL conference in South America, of being shocked ("then, but not now," she says) by certain statues in the Frogner Gardens, of sore feet and three concerts in one afternoon in San Marco Square, of a circumcision party in Turkey, and of typhoon preparations in Hong Kong.

Meet the Author

Marjory Harris was born in 1908 in the beautiful West Coast city of Vancouver, Canada, and lives there still. Her early years were influenced by politics; her father was a federal cabinet minister. Then motherhood, and helping her husband build a successful advertising agency. After a divorce, Marjory was on her own-and she came into her own. She did volunteer work with the United Nations International Co-operation Year and The Experiment in International Living. She remarried in 1971 and, with her husband, continued to travel. At eighty-nine, widowed, legally blind, no longer able to travel, and bored, she bought a computer, memorized the keyboard, and began to record happy memories of travel. She is busy now with researchers, editors, and publishers preparing the third of her five travel books, and a romance, for publication.
