About the Author
"Travel gives me a sense of freedom and enlightenment," she says. "It frees me from the expectations of my own culture, and it shows me how intriguing and diverse life can be."
When her 40th birthday was approaching, she evaluated her life and ended up selling her house, quitting her job and traveling around the world. Her first book, "If Your Dream Doesn't Scare You, It Isn't Big Enough: A Solo Journey Around the World" tells the story of what happened during her adventure.
Kristine now works at the Savannah College of Art and Design as the senior web content manager. She continues to have a weak spot for Snickers bars, Pringles potato chips and Fanta Orange sodas, which were an integral part of the trip. Although she thrives in Savannah, Georgia--despite its monstrous palmetto bugs, Kristine is plotting another global adventure, this time focusing on the Pacific Rim.
