She divides fear into two categories: caution in the face of real threats: "Keep this kind of fear. It keeps you safe and happy and not dead."
The second fear is of failure -- "This is the kind of fear that I will be kicking you in the ....... for."
And kick she does -- traveling the world, sharing amazing adventures in excellent prose, a wonderful travel writing with a unique sense of life.
During a trip to Australia, Janet and I spent three days with a young guide exploring that wonderful place -- a gigantic seal rolled down to the sea about four feet from where we were sitting marveling at the sight of rocks that had claimed a ship in a famous accident many years ago. Unbelievable.
You can see Adelaide across the water, and Kangaroo Island is pretty big: 150 km (93 mi) long and between 90 km (56 mi) and 57 km (35 mi) wide. Our excellent guide was 28, well educated, and told us he had never left the island, even to visit Adelaide. (You could see very distinct tire tracks on the roads where folks drove constantly turning the steering wheel from side to side while traveling at high speeds.) We learned from several sources: there are two types of Aussies: those that never leave home; and those who leave home to travel the world -- but eventually return home to Australia.
Torre DeRoche is definitely of the second type, and a wonderful explainer of her voyages. Join her either in this fine book or on her fascinating blog.

Lucky for Torre Ivan is Argentinian; about to embark on a solo sailing adventure across the Pacific.
Love with a Chance of Drowning is the heartfelt memoir of a woman who leaves behind the comforts of an American corporate lifestyle for life at sea. Faced with challenges beyond her imagination, Torre connects with herself, her surroundings and Ivan. Her story of sheer determination and devotion is an inspiration and sends a simple yet strong message to the reader ‘you must try.’
Read this book and you will: Want to conquer your biggest fear.
Favourite Extract: “Despite witnessing me tucked into a cowardly ball; despite seeing me vomit up everything but my intestines; despite enduring volumes of tears and snot showered over his neck and being asked more than fifty times if we’re going to die, this man still loves me. But not only that, he’s actually proud of me.” Part One: Fire, Chapter Seven.
