Globe Trottin' Granny
Hello, I am Kathleen Couch, aka Globe Trottin Granny. I am a wife of 43 years to my husband, Daren. My son is 35 and the father of one little girl. My daughter is 30 and the mother of 4 little boys. I am a grandma to 5 of the brightest, wittiest, handsome, and prettiest grandkids. (Don’t all of us grandparents say that?) If you look closely, behind the chair in my picture, is the youngest of my grandchildren, (see, just the top of his head). He was helping me set up my computer. LOL
My home for the past 18 years has been in Metro Atlanta, Georgia. I have a typical life, nothing outstanding, but I try to not get trapped by an attitude of not being able to change. When I talk to many people around my age, (which is 62), they are always saying they can’t. Whether it is learning their computer, joining a group, or eating new food, some just don’t want to change, or venture into anything new. What a shame! They are missing adventure, and fun.
I have visited Hawaii, Israel, Rome, Egypt, Denmark, Italy, Sicily, Crete, Greece, Turkey, Spain, France, and Sweden. Gone on mission trips to Florida, Newport Beach, Alaska, Honduras, and El Salvador. I have also experienced living in several different parts of the US. They are Ohio, Texas, Kansas, New Jersey, and Georgia. All regions have differences as well as similarities. My favorite way to be in a new area, is to be able to interact with the locals, rather than just passing through.
Moving to Sweden is what brought me to start Globe Trottin’ Granny, but if you haven’t guessed yet, it’s not just about living in Sweden, or traveling. It’s just as much about not letting your comfort zone keep you in a prison, no matter what your age.
So follow me on my journey. I will be sharing what I observed from the different places I have been, or will be going .
Mission Statement: Through this blog, I hope to share interesting and useful information, to entertain, and to educate fellow, or future travelers. I have a strong desire to serve people that do not have even basic needs met. I plan to do that through this blog, by going on volunteer trips, and sharing any proceeds that may come in the future from revenues of the blog by a ratio of 50% to established charity organizations, with the other 50% to travel.
Thank you for reading, and enjoy my posts!
