    I absolutely love to travel - alone or with my husband.  

    I had the greatest "Ferris Buehler's weekend off" last year in New York.  My husband had to work that weekend so I decided to go it alone.  I had a blast!  I saw three plays (great single seats are usually available cheap), shopped for antiques in Chelsea, saw a Chinese New Year parade in Chinatown, went to the free night at the Museum of Modern Art, went on long walks through Central Park, drank Belgian beer, and ate some of the best food I ever tasted.  

    I have often traveled around the country alone and I love the freedom of it all.  Friends and relatives, especially women, often tell me that they would be afraid to travel alone.  How sad it must be to live your life in fear.  I am always aware of my surroundings and I never take unnecessary risks, but I refuse to  be afraid to explore.
