I'm Kay, a travel writer, speaker and backpacker. I started solo hiking at age 55, and discovered I could unplug from the crazy, and let Nature heal me. Because--trust me--everything looks better after a long hike in the woods and a bottle of good scotch. Do you have a distant dream of exploring the world? You can make this year your year. You can make EVERY year your year!
