Hello, and thanks for subscribing to Travel Post Monthly.
Our first story this month comes from Joanne Galko. Joanne says she is first and foremost an explorer, craving new experiences whether it’s a destination, activity, or different hair color. Having visited over 30-countries, she loves learning about world cultures and all things ethnic. After escaping the corporate accounting world, Joanne is now an aspiring travel writer and makes her home in Colorado’s Front Range with her husband and two cats.
Joeann Fossland, our second writer, got a bite from the travel bug in the 70’s. She spent a year traveling the country with two small children in a blue and purple converted school bus with peace symbols on the front. From there, travel adventures have taken her through the next 50 years. Follow her adventures at www.JoeannsView.com
Daniel Freeman, writer #3, is a retired educator and science supervisor from Florida. He also worked with the Department of Defense. You can follow Dr. Dan, as his colleagues affectionally call him at www.alyeskeea.com where he writes about his travels to view building murals and street art.
Writer #4, Maria Heberling, is working the Great Escape Travel Writing program. She has been writing stories, commentaries, newsletter articles, reports, and poetry most of her life. She says, “Travel Writing matches my skill and travel passions. After the Ultimate Travel Writers Workshop in Little Rock this September, I hope to have a better sense of professionalism, what sells, and what the best outlets for my work will be.”
