I think volunteering is important–especially when volunteering helps me contribute to my community. Unfortunately, I don’t get a lot of time to do it.
One thing I have discovered that I can do, though, is share some of my photos and adventures from my travel writing career. While I publish these stories online at http://guide2travel.ca, that doesn’t mean everyone still gets a chance to see them.
So, I regularly do an armchair traveling afternoon at our local Seniors Centre. I enjoy it and so does my audience!
Here’s my latest armchair travel slideshow that covered the 40th wedding anniversary trip that my husband, David, and I, took last fall down the U.S. East Coast.
