I’m K. Gillett. My yearning to travel has burned within me for as long as I can remember. After getting my teaching credential I applied and got accepted to teach in Australia. I had a free ticket home, but decided to return on what the Australians and the English called the overland trail. I took an incredible opportunity to go by yacht from Cairns, Australia to Bali Indonesia, stopping to see many islands, mainly deserted, along the way, as well as visiting two inhabited islands: Thursday Island in Australia and Portuguese Timor. I also took a flight into Calcutta, India and Kathmandu, Nepal. Otherwise I traveled by buses, trains, mopeds, rickshaws, one truck, and a tramp steamer to Singapore. My favorites? Yachts and trains.
Do I ever have stories to tell YOU! Some seem so hilarious in hindsight; I do believe that you will enjoy them, hopefully as much as I love telling these true stories, as perfectly as I can recall.
After five years on the road, I returned to the States, so happy to see the American flag. Eight years later I left for parts unknown to me, Nice, France, and Tunis, Tunisia. Last year I visited Spain and Morocco. The travel bug never leaves me. Hopefully you’ll enjoy as I prepare to roam the world again.
Where will I go? Stay tuned and I’ll lead you through the process.
Happy Travels, My Friends!
