    Travel Brigade takes in the red rock beauty of Moab, Utah, for hiking, canyoneering, mountain biking, rock climbing and river rafting in an area that has both Arches and Canyonlands national parks. We’ll have interviews with Discover Moab and the Red Cliffs Lodge located right on the banks of the Colorado River, and we’ll also find out about exploring slot canyons from the rigger Danny Boyle and James Franco consulted when making the movie 127 Hours, just one of many Hollywood movies filmed in this stunning location. After a day in the outdoors, in our “Ya Gotta Eat!” segment we’ll tell you about local Castle Creek winery, a classic drive-in with handmade buffalo chili burgers and a local diner’s breakfast concoction called the “Sweetwater Skillet.” Enjoy the trip!

    Janice Holly - Booth - Solo Traveler

    in Travel

    Janice is 53 years old, and has been travelling solo for more than a decade. She didn’t start out wanting to travel alone, it’s just that the adventures she wanted to take – canyoneering, dogsledding, learning the flying trapeze,
    etc. – were not that appealing to any of her friends.
    After the first solo trip, she became addicted to the freedom and exhilaration of hitting the road by herself. She knows that many people in my age bracket who have gone through divorce or are single-parent-empty-nesters are reluctant to travel alone, yet it is probably one of the most profound gestures they can make toward creating a life that really resonates for them.
    She says that because while she was travelling all over the place, having hair-raising adventures and pretty much scaring herself half-to-death over and over again, she was also learning about who she was at her core. She came to know and understand the nature of courage, and how to develop it on her own terms.
    "So many great life lessons offered themselves up to me, and I was able to receive them because I wasn’t distracted by or wrapped up in a travel partner".
