Peg Herring reads, writes, and loves mysteries. She is the author of several stand-alones and three series: the Simon & Elizabeth Mysteries (historical), the Dead Detective Mysteries (mildly paranormal), and the Loser Mysteries (contemporary suspense).
Peg loves travel, both in the States and abroad. Here's what she has learned so far.
Travel with a camper: fun but nerve-wracking on the hilly bits. And squirrels don't know that crawling inside the refrigerator mechanism is committing seppuku.
Travel by car: if you are so lost that you pass through the same small town three times in one day, give it up and spend the night there. Things will go better in the morning.
Travel in Wales: there probably isn't a road named ARRRRGGGGH!! But there should be.
Travel in England: roundabouts can be fun--if you live past the first one.
Travel in Bahrain: when the sign says "Camel Crossing," it means it.
Travel in Dubai: do not panic when your dhow is almost rammed by a much larger boat. You know how to swim, and it's not that far to shore.
Travel in Michigan: despite what you've heard, there are only two seasons here--the winter season and the construction season. To navigate safely, they both require experience, a cool head, and lots of patience.
Despite the trials, we love to travel to new places, meet new people, and see things we haven't seen before.
