Four Steps to Africa: The Journey of Sean and Camryn Handler
By Kristi Kates
Boyne Spas Director Sean Handler says that there were four significant events that led up to he and his wifes recent life-changing trip to Kenya, Africa.
One, my father gave me your editors book, Planet Backpacker, by Robert Downes, Handler says, the travelogue of his journey got me thinking, if he can do it, why cant I? Two, Dr. Wayne Dyers book, Excuses Begone, also became a reference point; Solace Spa (at Boyne) was sponsoring Dr. Dyers CMU Public TV special, and the timing was perfect as it allowed me to see the excuses of my past, which had been creating a roadblock from this trip becoming a reality.
Three, I placed a large map of the world on the wall with marker points, he continues, every day I would look at it and tell myself reasons why I would travel soon - and four, the inspirational moment when Camryn and I finally just decided we are doing this, no more excuses, let the planning begin!
