Welcome to Speaking of Travel

Hi! I’m Marilyn Ball, your host of Speaking of Travel. I began Speaking of Travel as a way to incorporate my love of travel and adventure with a portal for great story telling from others who have unique travel stories. There is no doubt travel opens our minds and our hearts. My guests share their life-changing experiences and magical moments to prove how travel changes you. Being the host of Speaking of Travel has changed me! I’ve learned when we venture beyond the boundaries of everyday life and slip out of our cultural restraints, we find ourselves opening to new possibilities, imagining a life of greater meaning and seeing ourselves in a new light. I feel more confident that I can always have adventures… whether it’s taking a trip to an exotic location or a trip to the beach, life is changed just by getting away and stepping out.

So sit back and be carried away to places from around the world and right here in our own backyard.
