Ancient Egyptians believed that upon death they would be asked two questions and their answers would determine whether they could continue their journey in the afterlife.  
The first question was, "Did you bring joy?"  
The second was, "Did you find joy?"

What "Bon Voyage" Looks Like

Some of my best girlfriends got together and had a bit of a Bon Voyage fete at Oliver's Twist, here in Seattle.....The owner's four year old daughter turned to her mom and apparently said, "They all look like they love each other." As the hub of the wheel, the only one who knew everyone at the table, I felt so cared for and left the evening full up with love, laughter and camaraderie to carry with me on my voyage.

And my sweet friend Jake made me this picture of Love and Luck!

All adventurers should be so nourished when they set off!

That party looks like it was really fun! Wish I could have been there.

I was reading a book on Argentina last night and thought of you. It recommended a website called Journey Woman (, a website for women travelers. I just looked at it a bit; and it seems pretty good. I know you've already started your journey, however, I thought you might be sitting at an internet cafe sometime and check it out.

Buen Viaje!
