Standing by my bed in gold sandals Dawn that very moment awakened me
Gold Sandals is about much more than this Sappho poem which has significance for me, in that I wrote a novella, titled The Nameless, based on an experience I have traveling in Mexico, that had to do with gold sandals.
So Gold Sandals is the name of my travel blog. When I was younger, I traveled alone to Japan, where I lived for more than half a year. I traveled alone to South Korea, and back to Japan. I traveled by train alone in India and ended up living there for more than a year. I traveled alone to Singapore, and by train up through Malaysia and back to Singapore again. I traveled alone to Hong Kong, where I lived for two years. I traveled alone to Taiwan where I stayed and had some extra parts in a movie. I traveled alone in Mexico, and around Europe.
I prefer Asia and Mexico.
Now that I’m older, my travel needs have changed, and I’d like to record what I learn on this blog, Gold Sandals.
I plan to make Gold Sandals a collection of information that you may find helpful or useful, along with sharing my personal experiences and photos.
Here is the cover of my forthcoming e-book:
I asked my book cover designer to create an updated version of this vintage poster design:
