Beth Whitman has logged hundreds of thousands of miles around the globe as a contemporary Wanderer: combining her love for travel with volunteer work, adventure trips, travel writing and business.
She has backpacked through Nepal; ridden a motorcycle solo through Central America, worked with orphans in Vietnam; driven the AlCan Highway to Alaska; and maneuvered the back roads of France's Dijon region in a rental car. She's had a hand grenade pulled on her in Cambodia; fought off giardia in southeast Asia; been threatened by Nicaraguan police; and been flashed by men from New Orleans to Saigon.
Her travel articles and photos have appeared in books, newspapers and magazines including BMW Magazine and Sound Rider as well as online magazines including Transitions Abroad and Perceptive Travel. She is the recipient of the Joe Christian Award for excellence in writing and has been teaching travel workshops for more than 16 years.
Beth is the author of the Wanderlust and Lipstick series of travel guides for women, the editor of the Wanderlust and Lipstick website, wanderlustandlipstick.com and the travel blogger for the Seattle Post Intelligencer.
This is a FREE event and is open to all.
