My sister, Brenda Calvert, loves to travel — and she does a LOT of it — both in our home country, the U.S., and around the rest of the world as well. She is also a natural-born teacher, and she has been able to share helpful information and tips with many other people about how single people can travel alone, feel totally secure, and have loads of fun. So we finally convinced her to start a blog where people can visit and enjoy all that she has to share. I hope some of my readers will visit her at her new home on the Internet and welcome her to WordPress.

For some trips, I prefer driving, some flying, and some on Amtrak (love train travel!). Making these decisions about where I go and by what mode I travel goes a long way in determining the final cost of the trip.
