Galavanting Goddess: Chronicles of a Life Well-Lived is a series of travel memoirs that follows the goddess of galavant (Lisa) through the twisting, winding path of her highly unconventional life of adventure that could often be described as chaotic abandon. As explained by one reader, "Some may want to be like you while others will think you are absolutely crazy. Either way, they won't want to miss the gold in these pages!"
The first in the series, Alaska to Cuba, focuses on her quest for thrills on the high seas. She departs her rural Alaskan cabin with a hunger to learn how to sail. Follow along on her 6 month journey through new friendships, romantic encounters, illegal border crossings, disgruntled captains, gut-wrenching seasickness, and plenty of awe-inspiring magical moments.
The second in the series is now available! Bite of the Travel Bug regails of Lisa's backpacking and hitchhiking through both Australia and Africa. From a surprise and terrrifying introduction to the worlds largest bat, to encountering and mending a broken heart, to swimming from hippos and scrambling from lions, Lisa's travel exploits will keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting more!
Wether you're looking for motivation to take that trip of a lifetime you've always wanted to take, or just a riveting adventure to keep you pleasantly occupied for a bit, join Lisa on her over-the-top tails of how one single woman learned herself through some highly entertaining travel encounters.
