The best-selling author and photographer gave herself a wonderful present for her 70th birthday: A 3 month-trip on her own through Southern Europe in her red car, that also served as her sleeping place.
“One reason for this journey on my own is that I want to listen to my inner self, want to take care of my soul. In everyday life, we function and act according to outside demands. The voice of the soul is rarely heard. On this trip, I have the time, leisure and peace and quiet to listen to my inner voice. A wonderful present.”
The author’s witty remarks are a pleasure to read. The narrative style is simple and direct, the photos stimulating and personal. You find yourself accompanying the author on her trip through Southern Europe, where she shares her thoughts about places, people and feelings. A precious true personal account about friendship, love, growing old, about God and the meaning of life, that is really worth reading. You almost feel sad, when you have finished the book, because you have become so attached to the author. But all good things must come to an end and life is a constant journey.Download the factsheet with all specifications
