As for my name-"The TravelSlut®"- I have been AFFECTIONATELY labeled both "The Travel Slut" & "Travel Slut" for over 20 years by friends who have said I love travel so much that I'd do ANYTHING in order to travel anywhere, anyplace, anytime, anyhow, & anyway --with (just about) anyone. Well, they were right about my love for travel & it looks like I have lived up to my name so far & will continue to do so.
So, I'm now known by friends & family as both "The Travel Slut" or just "TravelSlut". I accept it & even have "groupies" who now want to follow in my footsteps. Some have adopted labels like "TravelSlut 3 (TS-3)" or "TravelSlut 4, (TS-4) ....
I've been making travel a priority in my life for many years now & I don't plan anytime soon to change my ways. I love all aspects of travel from discussing it, researching it, planning it, doing it, & then documenting it.
I love all forms of travel and if I had to pick a favorite it would be cruising. I love it when someone else drives, cooks and cleans-lol. I also love exotic adventure travel especially via trains or floatplane.
I've cruised over 55 times now & I love the oceans & all they have to offer. I especially love exploring seaside resort towns.
I still need to visit Antarctica although I won't turn down a trip anywhere domestically or internationally if it comes along at the right time & right price. Is it obvious that I love to travel?
