So chuffed to see my story in print for the first time today in Womansweekly.co.uk! Hoping it inspires other women to travel solo later in life too. Check it out for yourself with the amazing Michaela Strachan on the cover.
“Travelling in your 40s and 50s is different to your 20s – you’re savvier! We think we discover ourselves when e’re quite young. I’d been part of a couple for 18 years and that became my identity. I didn’t know who I was on my own and I had to figure out how to do it alone.”
“I hope my story inspires other women to travel alone.”
FINDING FREEDOM THROUGH LOCKDOWN AND GRIEF – A TALK WITH SUSAN KREBO PODCAST
Sue Cockell is a world solo traveler and so much more. What a wonderful conversation talking about her husband, her grief, her travels, her ‘life list’ and her ‘coming home’.
A couple of quotes from Sue’s blog sums up our conversation beautifully:
“After 2 years in and out of lock down, I have found my ultimate freedom. That being on my own is enough for me. That I need to live in the present rather than dwelling in the past and don’t put too much pressure on future plans. After all, you never know when they will be taken from you.”
The past is behind, learn from it. The future is ahead, prepare for it. The present is here, live it.
