I began to write WORLD ENCOUNTERS in 2015, when I retired and began travelling with my partner, Aaron.We shared a dream of travelling unfettered, taking long chunks of time to experience the world without those niggling anxieties about ‘things’ we might have to deal with at home. How would we achieve that peace of mind while travelling? By owning nothing! Or very little anyway. To this end, we endeavoured, over the last year of our working lives, to sell and give away almost everything we owned, including cars. Of course, we have family and friends with whom we wanted continued relationships, but in this technological age, we knew that all things are possible.

And so it had been proven, as we have travelled Asia, Europe, Latin America, Baja, US, Cyprus, Morocco, Great Britain, Mexico and Canada in a wide variety of adventure modes. Flying, bussing, boating and travelling by RV, we have been on the road for 7+ years, and the end is not in sight. In fact, it seems to become more compelling with each travel experience, to continue our explorarions. I  invite you to join me as I share my experiences, thoughts, insights and feelings and the accounts of others who I’ve encountered along the way too. It’s a big world, filled with delightful discoveries. Enjoy the journey!

  1. Hi Kath, This is Ming Lee, who you meet at the beach in Dominical after your brush with the incoming tide. We arrived back home last night after a few glorious days near Carrarra National park. Costa Rica is so lovely! We will definitely return.
    Best wishes, Ming Lee from Rhode Island USA

  2. Hi,

    Just read your comprehensive summary about the Ruta Puuc visit and will be there later this week. Do you happen to know if it is okay to bring a small dog on the archaeological sites? I cannot find information anywhere….thank you!

    1. Hi Steve, I didn’t see anyone with a dog, yet there are resident dogs at several of the sites. I think it would be fine, especially if leashed. Rules in Mexico tend to be more relaxed. Sorry I can’t give a definite answer to your question.
