Traveling Nancy

Traveling around the world as far as I can go.

Almost ready to go!


Here are all the things (plus the iPad Mini that was used to take the photos) that I have to get into my pack.


Packing Gear

Packing Gear with Nancy
It all fit and the pack weighs 15 pounds without water. But, at least with most of my hair cut off, my head will weigh less.

I am packed and ready to go.
I couldn’t think of anything that I could take out, but I wonder how many things I will abandon once I start walking. Off in the morning on this wonderful adventure.

Traveling has been a passion of Nancy Panitch's life and she loves seeing how people in other cultures live. Her travels have taken her to many places within the United States, Asia, Europe, South America, and Africa. Being around people inspires her and she has much gratitude for the kindred Souls that are joining together with her in body, mind, and heart. She moved from Chicago to Portland, Oregon in 1982. It was one of the best decisions of her life. While in Portland she stays very, VERY busy. She volunteers (Inter-Religious Action Network, Human Rights Council, & ushering for various theaters); attends a Unitarian Universalist church; goes hiking with groups (Cascade Prime Timers & Trails Club of Oregon) and also with individual friends. Book groups, movie group, and bridge groups occupy her time as well. Her quiet activities include yoga, knitting, Sudoku, and reading. She enjoys all of these activities, but making time to see her wonderful 4 grandchildren takes priority over it all. She is happy to share this blog and hopes to encourage others to travel.
