About Travels with Kathy  Slamp

When I was a young four-year old, my parents took me on my first BIG travel adventure.  It was BIG, and my travels have continued every since!  In a 1947 Hudson we drove from San Antonio, Texas to Seattle, Washington.  (That was before the Interstate system), AND my younger brother was only two weeks old at the time!  From Seattle we flew via Pan American to Fairbanks, Alaska, which became my childhood home.

As I grew, my parents continued their wanderlust so with them I traveled the entire United States. As an adult I have continued to follow the wind, traveling thousands of air, land, and water miles to world wide destinations. Those travels is the main thrust of this blog!

For 13 seasons it was my privilege to work with Princess Cruises as their on-board Naturalist. In this capacity, I narrated and presented Alaska programs for nearly 200 Alaskan Cruises. As the future unfolds, you ma find me narrating yet again on an Alaskan cruise ship.

My husband and I have hosted 11 pilgrimages to Israel, and because of those travels we have narrated on Mediterranean and Black Sea Cruises, visiting many countries in those regions. 

During the most recent four years, my husband and I have done extensive volunteer work and travels in Africa; at this time we have toured and visited 14 African countries. In the fall of 2016 our travels will take us to three additional African countries: the Democratic Rep. of Congo, Uganda, and Angola.  In addition to all these travels, we have toured the entire United States, Thailand, China, and soon Fiji, Australia, and New Zealand.

Traveling opens a giant window to the world, and it is just downright fun for me to share these travels with you.  I’m so glad you have joined this blog; please visit “Travels with Kathy Slamp” as often as you wish and feel free to tell your friends and neighbors!  On a regular basis I will be posting about an interesting travel site and also offering tips about that site.
