Description

‘Grammie’ has loved geography since she was in the third grade. So, it is no surprise that she has travelled to and made friends in more than fifty countries! Her first trip in an airplane was to Paris, where she studied French language and civilisation during her junior year of university. Then, when her own son and daughter became grown-ups, she started travelling again and hasn’t stopped. Her adventures include snorkelling with jellyfish in the Arabian Gulf, riding a camel in Egypt, paragliding over the mountains of Saudi Arabia, teaching English in the world’s largest all-women university, being a volunteer photographer for a health clinic in the mountains of Guatemala, visiting an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka, walking in the footsteps of St Francis of Assisi and many, many more. She fell in love with all the colours, sights, people and sounds that our beautiful world has to offer. So, for all of you grammies out there reading this book with your grandkids, close your eyes for a moment. Where do you want to go? Where have you dreamed about going? Paris? Egypt? Italy? Sri Lanka? Jordan? Let’s go on these journeys together and let this book be your guide. Better yet, if these stories spark your wanderlust, there are just three words for you: Go for it!

Ava Kabouchy:
As a child, Ava loved to travel by means of one of her favourite books, her world atlas. Her first voyage was to Paris during her third year of university, and then to numerous other destinations. She recently spent four remarkable years in Saudi Arabia as a teacher of English, taking photographs of and notes on her travels, and the idea for writing “Grammie” was formed. While there, she travelled not only within the Kingdom, but in nearby countries and in the United States during the summers.
Currently, she divides her time between her island home in Maine, where her grandkids visit, and southwest France. A recent adventure was a trek along 200 kms of the Camino de Santiago in Spain, and later enjoying the beautiful chaos of Morocco’s souqs, and walking barefoot in the sands of the Sahara, yet another childhood dream realized.
Please join her and travel off the beaten path together.
