Globetrotter, artist and linguist, living in the South of France in Provence, the author travelled widely during the sixties and seventies. In these diaries, recorded on a day to day basis, she shares with us her vivid impressions of the countries she visited. Impelled by a love for ancient history and a craving for exotic places, she chose to travel alone encountering a wealth of warm welcomes wherever she went. Written at a time when travel was more leisurely and before the digital age introduced global discovery, these writings speak of a way of life that in many countries has now virtually disappeared. With an insatiable curiosity in her small bag, keen observation and a daunting self-will, the author found that the far horizons yielded a treasure trove for her discerning pen.
