I walked into a restaurant recently and a woman approached me and asked if I was Marilyn Ball, from Speaking of Travel. Wow! She said she listens every weekend and loves to hear the stories. She told me she's saving money now for her special decade birthday coming up next year. She explained to me that hearing others talk about how happy they are when they travel, and how it is worth any and all sacrifice to go and get out of their familiar zone, made her more determined to just do it. This makes me so happy!
