Why Travel?

Travel opens the doors of perception.

You begin to live in the open question, looking at the world and yourself with different eyes. Your awareness heightens and you see, feel and taste things that you have never seen, felt or tasted. You wake up as if you have been asleep and realize that you are living in a technicolor dream-like world full of wonder and beauty and sadness, yet, it surprises you how rich and moving the content. It stimulates your creative juices and all wishes seem possible.

Love this post, Peggy. I first read about you in "More" magazine 2 years ago, and swear, next November, I'm coming to Morocco to cook with you! (I finally made your Tagine Chicken, with real preserved lemons - and it was FABulous!) Love what you do - and it inspired the last year and 1/2 of my own travels - and life. Thank you!

Hello Valerie,

Thanks for your comment. I would love to have you come cook and travel with me in Morocco! I look forward to reading your blog as well.

Happy trails on the great wine road!
