Description

Lori Erickson, an award-winning travel writer, shares intense experiences around the world, and discusses deep, meaningful travel, often of great beauty.
-- We talk of  spiritual journeys, not only for religious reasons. Lori's trip to Lourdes showed her how people rely on faith. and she reflects on the beauty of a Maori area in New Zealand. Lea remembers an evening ceremony in a  Kauori forest in New Zealand, and climbing a hill of Buddhas in Borabudur in Java.
-- We discuss spiritual experiences at the  Dead Sea, sunset at Sedona Arizona, and memories of Angkor Wat, Machu Picchu, Walden Pond, Ephesus Turkey, and Crestone Colorado.
-- At Assisi, with its beautiful church paintings and lovely piazza, Lea  attended a jazz concert , and explains how to her, music is a form of spirituality. Lea also mentions the Sanctuary of Apollo in Delphi Greece, where the Oracle sat in ancient times.
-- Lori remembers the Western Wall in Jerusalem, and the expressions of public devotion.
-- We end with our most memorable spiritual travels. Lea reads from her travel book, Places I Remember about  solar eclipse. Lori talks about Bear Butte, Idaho, where she often returns.
