Read full description of the books Only Pack What You Can Carry: My Path to Inner Strength, Confidence, and True Self-Knowledge:Magnetically written by former CEO of a North Carolina Girl Scout Council and award winning CEO for the Western New York chapter of a national arts-in-education organization, this uniquely engaging travel journal describes four keys to unlocking personal and spiritual fulfillment: solitude, introspection, courage, and commitment. Through a series of compelling travel essays and deeply thoughtful memoirs, Janice Booth draws readers into each adventure—ranging from a solo hike through Northern California to galloping across the fields of Ireland to a short stint with the Circus Arts learning the flying trapeze—and shares her secrets to a fuller life through traveling alone. Step by step, she demonstrates why leaving everything—and everyone—behind for a few days (or more!) is the best path to inner strength, confidence, and true self-knowledge.
Read information about the authorTen years ago, Janice tried to find someone -- anyone -- to accompany her on a trip to southern Utah to explore the mystery of slot canyons. Not only would no-one go with her (she didn't take it personally at the time, but now she's beginning to wonder...), everyone she spoke to tried to talk her out of it. "It's too dangerous! It's too weird! Your joints are creaky - what are you thinking?"
She nearly succumbed to their uninformed yet well-intentioned warnings, but decided instead to don her big girl panties and head out to the slot canyons by herself. "The best thing that ever happened to me, aside from dark chocolate, was I had to take that trip alone." That was 1998, and Janice has been addicted to solo travel ever since. More than a decade later she realizes that solo travel gave her priceless gifts. "Travelling alone changed me. It changed the way I look at life and at my future. To be able to share these epiphanies with others is also a gift."
Whether it's through personal coaching sessions or via the pages of Only Pack What You Can Carry, Janice is committed to sharing her insights about what it means to live the life you want to live. Just don't ask her to share her chocolate...
