About the Author
Virginia native and Florida resident Catherine Aragon caught the travel bug at a young age, thanks to her generous parents. (Extra emphasis on “generous,” because we all realize, especially with children of our own, how expensive family travel can be!) Her travels have criss-crossed the world’s great capitals: Paris, Rome, Madrid, Tokyo, and Franklin County, Virginia. (The latter, one of the world’s lesser-known destinations and Catherine’s childhood home, is acclaimed as “moonshine capital of the world.”) Nowadays she “reports for duty” stateside and overseas with her military husband.
Catherine’s favorite quote comes from author S. Rao: “There's no destination. The journey is all that there is, and it can be very, very joyful.” She believes these words ring true for travel and the joy of the journey - unless that journey happens to be a long plane ride with an energetic toddler (2012, Atlanta to Singapore, 24+ hours, middle seats)!
