Beth’s Travels

In the early days… 

Beth spent one year living in Bath, England during college, which definitely whet her appetite to explore the world.During this time, she visited a bunch of European countries, including As her year abroad was wrapping up, she decided to spend a summer working on a kibbutz. That’s when she went to Israel and lived on Kibbutz Regavim. She also explored numerous historic sites throughout the country and learned the art of the air raid drill. Beth’s goal, once she returned home and started to earn a living, was to amass sufficient discretionary income to fund further global adventures.

In the middle years…

When opportunity knocks,it’s important to listen! In 1985, Beth had a graduate school friend who was doing his Peace Corp stint in Morocco. So it seemed like a perfect opportunity for her to jump the puddle over to northern Africa and explore Marrakesh and the Atlas mountains while learning to sneak a loaf of bread during Ramadan. Three years later, Beth began what would turn into an 11-year tradition of travel adventures, near and far, with her good friend Ellen. What started as a simple phone call (Ellen: “Hey, do you want to go to Thailand with me?” Beth: “Sure, when?” Ellen: “How about in two or three weeks from now?”Beth: “Sounds perfect!”) ended up evolving into a thirst to uncover the secrets of Southeast Asia and other faraway lands. The more third world the country was, the better Beth enjoyed discovering it. Here’s a brief chronology of domestic and international locales that Beth explored from the late 80s through the late 90s:
Interspersed with some of these more outdoorsy adventures were a few cultural itineraries that took Beth to England and Ireland by way of business trips.

Tremblant, Canada; Watkins Glen, NY; and New Hampshire International Speedway in Loudon, NH, Mosport, Calabogie, New Jersey Motor Park.
