Wandering the World

Peggy Simonsen

If you could go anywhere in the world and have any kind of adventure, what would it be?

From boats to ancient artifacts, business conferences to third-world cultures, jungles and deserts to penguins in Antarctica, Wandering the World shares the far-flung adventures of Peggy Simonsen, participant traveler.

Sail with her through crystal-clear waters, then ski down snowcapped mountains. Travel by boat, train, car, and even bicycle, seeing the world through her eyes.

This collection of bite-sized anecdotes shows what it means not just to travel but to take part in life, no matter where you go and no matter who you meet.

Wandering the World will inspire you to live, savor, and remember all your greatest adventures, even the ones that happen close to home.

Peggy Simonsen has been a sailor, skier, and nature lover most of her life. As the owner of an international consulting company, she has traveled for both business and pleasure, experiencing more than sixty countries and all seven continents. Now a retired widow, she continues to seek adventure in far-flung parts of the world with family and friends–not just to observe, but to participate in all life has to offer.

Peggy is also the author of Promoting a Development Culture in Your Organization, about using career development as a change agent, and Career Compass, on managing your career in the twenty-first century. At home, she serves on the board of two conservation organizations and cultivates her Illinois wooded yard with native plants.
