Never Give Up

Sometimes when traveling, you get to be anonymous and become a stranger among strangers. But strangers can become your friends, lovers, heroes, or inspiration. Although I was born in a generation where women are much more privileged than in the past, as a woman, I did have moments that made me realize the struggles manyContinue reading “Never Give Up”
