"It's a strange thing-when I travel, I seem to leave fatigue behind. There always seems to be a surge of energy for adventures. When at home, all my energy seems to go into existing, but traveling brings me a kind of freedom I can't find doing anything else."
Ruth Simkin proves you don't have to be a young, strong, back-packer nor a wealthy luxury-seeker to have exciting and interesting travel experiences. She shares her adventures to China, Japan, and Russia, with a dip into Europe.
Both armchair and actual travelers will be inspired by tales of Ruth and her sister as they experience cultural difference through the food, history, and the people, presented with humor and understanding.
All one needs to do is pack a sense of humor and open the pages.
