"Imagine the amount of courage it takes for a 30 year old banker to give up all security and start a whole new life and career. Imagine that you are a woman, and decide to embark on a trip around the world... on a bicycle! Imagine writing a book about your experiences, and exposing yourself to public criticism and ridicule.

But the difficulties and the traumas never stopped her from continuing her journey..."

My daughter leaves for Thailand in 2 days. For a year! To meditate and explore. I'm excited and scared for her but if I hadn't read your book I don't think I would have been able to cope with this adventure. Thank you for your inspirations.

I had a lot of hurdles that I crossed early in my life, but this book is a great example of how anyone can tackle any obstacle thrown at them and have the strength to learn and grow. Seeing Myself Seeing the World is truly a remarkable story of strength, courage, determination, and inner spirit..."

Sally's strength in adversity, her positive attitude and her effective use of meditation was incredibly inspirational to me. Plus her stories are fascinating, I'm so excited to see where she goes next and hope to enlist her help as my daughter plans some solo travels next year."
