Barbara Hawkins has lived a variety of lives: as a botanist–collecting plant specimens from Latin American jungles, engineer–building wetlands, parks, and roads, finally as an author of historical fiction, science fiction, and international travelogues. Adventure travel is a hobby she’s had since before it had a name. If she isn’t at home writing, she’s off traveling.
Have you ever climbed outcrops to view Aborigine pictographs in the outback of Australia?
Did you ever get lost in Venice along a light-less canal after midnight?
Caught a local bus out of Machu Picchu on a switchback road then threw up your lunch?
Had to flee from Muslim ruins overrun by vervet monkeys in Kenya
Taken up residence in a flea-bit hut because there were no rooms for rent after an earthquake in Guatemala?
I am always looking for something different to see or do.
