Thirty years of working as a reporter and writing for others, Doris Gallan decided it was now time to work for herself. In 2006 Doris and her husband quit their well-paying jobs, sold their house and 99 percent of their worldly possessions and set out on a 26 month ’round-the-world trip. Combining her love of writing with her love of travel she has since traveled forty countries on six continents – including Antarctica, learned the polite words of some two dozen languages, ate foods she didn’t know existed, used practically every mode of transportation still in use and learned a lot herself and the world around her. With this much experience to write about she decided she had no excuse but to start putting words on paper (or more accurately computer).
