Travel - Just do it
Talking with Lea Lane is like having coffee or a glass of wine with a dear friend. Interesting, educational and just plain fun.
Over the years, Lea's been to more than 100 countries. During the pandemic she started her award-winning podcast, Places I Remember with Lea Lane.
Lea Lane has written more than a thousand travel pieces and columns, and contributed to Fodor’s guidebooks and Unofficial Guides. She’s authored eight books, including award-winners Solo Traveler, Travel Tales I Couldn’t Put in the Guidebooks, and Places I Remember: Tales, Truths, Delights from 100 Countries.
I know that Lea has so many stories to share - which means I need to do a follow-up interview or meet her somewhere on the road. I've got so many questions about how she navigated life as a wife, mother, communications professional, writer and now starting a podcast and Youtube channel......as she turns 80 years old! I love this.
Habits that work for Lea:
People around the world are the same and can be a little different too.... we all love and care but we have little cultural differences.
Some of us have more luck than others, we were born in the right time and the right place. So many times I have seen people who have been through many wars and many famines and this sort of thing and they're just like I am, they're just not lucky and it makes you a better person if you realize this.
Prioritize what you want to do. If you're comfortable, do it.
Realize that time is short - so find a way to get out and go. Find someone to travel with or travel on your own.
You can buy Lea's book - Place I Remember: Tales, Truths and Delights from 100 Countries, on Amazon.
