Author Phyllis Karsnia was bitten by the travel bug when a friend coaxed her to go on a trip to the Caribbean. That vacation was the first of many journeys.

In her collection of travel adventures, Karsnia chronicles her travels to Portugal, Italy, England, Austria, Norway, the Greek Islands, and beyond. She explored the beauty, fun, and wonder of different countries and their cultures, histories, and people. Beginning with her initial trip to the Caribbean, Karsnia shares fascinating details and amusing stories that provide a glimpse into what it was like for a novice traveler as she stepped outside her comfort zone and embraced the world through travel. As she received a blessing by Pope John Paul II in St. Peter’s Square, visited Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal, prayed in a Buddhist Temple, and joined a parade during Norway’s celebration of Syttende Mai, she gathered memories, celebrated differences, and learned meaningful lessons.

is a collection of travelogues highlighting the author’s unforgettable experiences as she toured around the world. She punctuates her adventures with humorous stories about everyday events and retreats with sisters who love each other and love to play pranks. On a serious note, Karsnia also joins the re-opened discussions about equality in the workplace and working mothers.
