Just a few weeks ago, a traveller I met in San Pedro de Atacama insisted that I must - simply must - do this Death Road of Bolivia.

I can see what he means by the views.

But I'm still not convinced!

This is the kind of travel story that I like to read - because it's not about what I can get from the trip, but about learning more about what reality is like for others, understanding how we are interlinked, and what my choices and actions have driven, and should drive in future.

My engagement ring was an Australian opal, and not a diamond, because I knew about the diamond monopoly and the inequality that is reinforced by the diamond trade. I guess the gold trade is the same.

I urge us women to consider other tokens of affection, or the vintage/antique jewelry sites - at least until there's a Fair Trade option. Love is not honoured by gestures that prop the system enforcing inequality on mankind.

~A tribute to those who had to grow too, when I embark on my travels.~

"Much has been said about solo travel, and how it needn’t be lonely and isolated. That you would meet people along the way, travellers and hosts alike. And so, while you may start out solo, it wouldn’t be the case for very long.

This story is not about that. It is about a different way that solo travel turns out not to be solo."
