    Sailing with Rick Steves and Namibia's cheetahs

    in Travel

    Travel around the globe with World Footprints today as we go to Namibia, the Mediterranean and Detroit. First stop…Namibia with Dr. Laurie Marker, Founder of the Cheetah Conservation Fund.  Since 1990, Dr. Marker has pioneered new ideas in cheetah conservation and has formed cooperative alliances on behalf of the cheetah that have never before been possible. She is recognized around the world as one of the leading experts on cheetahs, both in the wild and in captivity.  Then we’ll journey to the Mediterranean with travel author and TV host Rick Steves.  Rick is on a mission: to help make European travel accessible and meaningful for Americans.  Rick just returned from two Mediterranean Cruises and he joins us to talk about his newest guide book, Mediterranean Cruise Ports, and the art of travel. Finally, Detroit is a city that has not been portrayed favorably in the media (except on World Footprints) so we were surprised to meet someone who left his Fortune 500 employer to move to Detroit for the purpose of showing the city in a different light.  Philip Lauri is the Founder and Director of Detroit Lives! and he join us to share why Detroit is a vibrant place to live and discover.

    Gordon Myers - author of Built to Bully and Street Smart Kids

    in Women

     


    Gordon Myers was born in Namibia, then grew up in a tumultuous environment in Cape Town from the age of 7. After skirting serious bouts of all kinds of trouble,  at 25, he took off, with nothing more than a backpack. After eight months of winging it through 11 different countries, he arrived in the USA, alone and broke. Without a formal education or a single contact to rely on, one can only imagine what lay ahead.

    From day one he started learning lessons the hard way, enduring many more as he discovered the huge delayed culture shock and how some things worked in the USA, a very different world than he was used to. Now, 26 years later, married for 22 years, a proud father of an accomplished daughter and son, Gordon knows what it is like to seek information in nontraditional and innovative ways.

    His experiences have allowed him to be an expert in managing life when things are not so easy. Still living a very much appreciated lifestyle for longer than he can remember, Gordon has made it his mission to help others, especially our youth, as he is the first to admit that without help, it will be impossible to thrive in this ultra competitive world. 

    His one caution is that you have to be the kind of person that others want to help...while this may not be so obvious it is critical and very worthwhile taking the time to learn.

    These books, Street Smart Kids and Built to Bully were written with a passion for saving as many people as possible from the hard knocks that either slow us down or take us out of the game.

    Voices of South Africa with Elize and ED

    in Politics Conservative

    I am the youngest of three girls born to Louis Hoseas Benjamin Moolman and Adelien Engelbrecht Moolman. I was born in 1972 in Johannesburg and lived in Cape Town, Pretoria, Ondangwa (Namibia) to name but a few. My father was a Sargent Major in the Army by the time he went on pension. My mother also joined the military while we lived in Namibia. Both of my sisters left the military as Sargent Majors. I was the only one who didn’t follow in my father’s footsteps. In part because I was found medically unfit to join the forces. I was the rebel in the family. I worked my way into a managerial position fresh out of College with nothing but a Secretarial diploma.


    I made friends with people around the world. One of these people ended up being my husband. Who flew to South Africa and refused to leave until he had my hand in marriage. My father reluctantly allowed me to leave and my sisters were angry at me. I started a new life and in Canada I experienced new emotions that I was never aware of before.


     


    I have the “White Shame” complex and “Survivor Guilt” the shame come from thinking of all the people who lost their lives and freedom during Apartheid, the guilt because I am raising my child in a place where the two of us can go for a walk in the bush without fear of other people, only animals. While my nieces’ children, who are slightly younger than him, haven’t even yet learned how to ride a bike because it’s not safe for them to leave their homes.
