Linda Sheperd,

LOCAL-
CROSSVILLE
TENNESSEE

My entire life has been one great exploitative adventure, from youth to the present. My mother was from the east and my dad from the south. This country division caused us to travel from one group of relatives to the next and, sometimes we stayed long enough for me to attend school and make friends.
With this framework, it is no wonder I had no problem packing up and moving when my husband’s career required out relocating. Numerous times over the years. We began our journey on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, where we encountered starfish, sharks, and hurricanes. Visiting the dunes where the Wright brothers launched themselves into the air and history to the sands where wild horses roam are memories I will always cherish. Raw oysters, fresh from the ocean seafood and champagne breakfasts on the beach – the Outer Banks
is an area I will always love. I had no problem hooking a trailer to the pickup, putting the dog in the back and heading to Arizona.

Arizona will always be special to me due to its versatility. Flagstaff offered horseback riding in the snow- capped mountains, Native American Pow Wows, and car shows galore. Whether riding a bike or boarding the local shuttle, it was easy to go from the Lowell telescope to the many museums and lost settlements. While touring Flagstaff is awe-inspiring, you only need to stand outside at the right night and witness the mysterious lights floating over the Superstition Mountains, (which we witnessed one evening) or wonder of wonders, ride out a desert tornado, and you know you are observing some of the wonders the world
has to offer. And, of course, I don’t want to forget the earth trembling from an earthquake centered in the Grand Canyon. The mountains between Tucson and Phoenix offer snow play areas where you can pull off the road and make snow angels. In the summer, Sedona offers areas where you can pull over and swim the creeks and pools provided by the melting mountain snow. The opportunity to feed the stingrays at Sea World in Florida and travel by boat to a remote island while two dolphins led the way will always be cherished memories. Riding a flatboat, with alligators swimming alongside, I made sure to visit the Manatees of Homosassa Springs, Florida. And now I am here in Crossville, Tennessee, where I
can continue my journey of exploring, learning, and sharing the many wonders of the world around me. I have canoed the Caney, ate cotton candy from the 127-
yard sale, and prowled the halls of Brushy Mountain Prison. I have truly been blessed by being a vagabond and intend to remain open to all opportunities presented to me. Life is one long journey and has many gifts to offer – we just need to accept them.

YEREVAN

Dear reader, let me introduce myself in a couple of words. I am Susanna Hayrapetyan from Yerevan, Armenia. I live here almost all my life and that’s not so much, just a 30 years’ time, compared to many centuries old history of my nation. I’m a wife, a mom, a business lady, a traveler and a food guru. During my trips one of the most important ways of exploring the culture of a country, to touch the spirit of a nation is through the national cuisine. It means not going to a popular touristic restaurant, but eat where the locals eat, surrounded by them, getting in contact with them. Being in hospitality business (I own a tour company and hostel here in Yerevan), it’s easy for me to get in touch with different cuisines and to help the guests of my city eat like a local and feel the Armenian hospitality.
