Interview Excerpt

Excerpt from an interview with Engchik, which you should read in its entirety!

“Q:

What is a travel tip for someone who’s never had their passport inked?
A:

You mean, more than just, “GO!”?

I find it essential to keep a sense of humor about your travels. Whether you’ve walked several miles in the heat of August in Rome (Rome in August again, Kari? Will you never learn?) to a restaurant that’s closed or found yourself trekking through an unexpected snowfall and flooded trails in sandals and socks in Croatia, you need to be able to laugh about it. Remember that the most memorable trips aren’t just the ones with amazing views–they’re also the ones that go awry.”

About the Author ()

Kari Martindale is a writer and ESL instructor. She’s visited all 50 states and 37 countries, including many of the big cities of Europe and a ton of Christmas Markets. She spends her days straddling the fence between a sense of adventure and a sense of dread. She is married to what is clearly a patient man and has a daughter who, frustratingly, is just like her. Her academic and professional backgrounds are in linguistics and foreign languages. When she's not teaching ESL, she's writing. When she's not writing, she's thinking about her next trip.
