Postcard from Our Traveler: Papua New Guinea! On my Short List of 1,000 Places
Patricia Schultz, author of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die, recounts her experience with travel to Papua New Guinea on an Asia Transpacific Journeys group trip:
A belated e-note to wax on about our August trip to PNG — to say it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience is a gross understatement! The list of superlatives is long – from the local people, to those who comprised our group (all of whom had glowing things to say about Jarrod and Asia Transpacific Journeys btw — am cc’ing Jarrod on this so he can bask in the praise, though I imagine he hears it often!) to our leader Suzanne who everyone agreed was possibly the nicest and brightest and funnest guide we’d ever come across – and that was one very well-traveled group of people (and one of the joys of the trip for that reason).
The trip was especially wonderful to me, as I had proofread my last chapter for the 1000 Places revision on the plane from NY to Sydney — and for the first time in 4 years, I was able to truly feel liberated and free to immerse myself entirely in the adventure without any stress and deadline concerns. Now THAT was priceless!
So the revision (a complete rewrite) and gorgeous app for 1000 Places are out Nov 15 – just in time for Christmas!! :)
Big Book Tour Jan-March.
Many many (many!) thanks again for everything.
