If Passports Could Talk is a memoir that reflects the multitude of expeditions I've taken, both overseas and domestically, including over 60 countries and all seven continents.Containing over 400 adjacent color photographs and chronicles, my book was written for people who are keen to learn more about various cultures, peoples and places around the world.My travel aspirations can be traced to my maternal grandmother, Harriett, a librarian and inveterate globetrotter; the stories she told me as a youth greatly fueled my inclination to experience more of what the world has to offer.
