About Caryn B. Davis
Dorothy said, “There’s no place like home.” It turns out, Dorothy was wrong.
I have had “itchy feet” for as long as I can remember. In my early twenties, I answered an ad that read: ‘Looking for brave souls to sail around the world’, and flew to New Zealand to crew on an old 108-foot cargo ship. This was the beginning of a life-long love affair with cultural exploration and a strong desire to journey.
Over the years, I traveled whenever I could until one day, I had the good sense and fortune to parlay my wanderlust into a successful career that has taken me to 6 continents, 52 countries and 21 states, thus far. I have floated in the Dead Sea; gotten locked inside a temple at the Great Wall of China and had to scale an 8-foot fence to get out; hiked into the Sicilian mountains to meet a goat herder who made ricotta cheese; got stranded on a South Pacific island that was home to the HMS Bounty mutineer descendants and made a documentary; swam with sea lions in New Zealand; photographed penguins in Antarctica; and along the way, met many fascinating, kind people. All these experiences not only enhanced my own life, but also my ability to craft engaging stories that interest, inspire and inform readers about our wondrous world. I firmly believe traveling broadens the mind, expands the heart and feeds the soul. It reminds us of our shared humanity while strengthening our understanding and compassion for one another.
