Virginia Woolf reading & walking pilgrimage

The Boston Globe interviewed me about the nothing-short-of-magical Virginia Woolf reading & walking pilgrimage I took part in this summer. The speed with which we all became extremely close and the ease with which we spoke to each other about truly hard and intimate things are two aspects that I will treasure for the rest of my life. I like my final quote in the piece: “I was looking for this kind of connection with other women,” Whitney continued. “We were able to speak in sincere and open ways. When you are traveling with a spouse or family as an adult, you aren’t always open to those intense, meaningful conversations that you have when you travel when you’re young. But we are always looking for that. You never age out of it. We just need to find the right communities.”

I highly recommend these trips (website here) for those looking for this kind of experience.
