About Suzanne Buller
I am a retired 70 something female, happily married to a wonderful man who does not like to travel. Retirement should be about living your dreams, and my goal is to travel as far and as often as I can.
I love to travel, but it has taken me many years to start my adventures. I was always an armchair traveller. There is nothing wrong with that, but I yearned to see all the places that I had read about. The problem? I was terrified of flying.
I looked into any solution that would help. (other than major drugs!) I saw a video on how planes fly. Very dry stuff, but fascinating. Then, I went to 3 hypnosis sessions. While I wasn’t totally unafraid of flying, the little bit of fear I had was certainly manageable.
My travels haven’t always been smooth, but it has taught me a lot about myself and what to do or not do the next time. It certainly has never been boring. I have met interesting people and pushed myself out of my comfort zone.
The travel bug is an itch you can’t quite scratch, and I have itchy travel feet. I hope that I inspire you to push through your comfort zones and join me on my adventures.

“In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.” Jocotepec, Mexico, is on the west side of Lake Chapala. It is a small, seemingly unassuming traditional town, but what isn’t apparent at first is that just outside this town are miles and miles of greenhouses or coverings for berries. Blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries […]
