One of the things I love about travel is all the amazing people you meet and how it expands the community of people you feel safe and protected by. I’m not sure if this is that travel brings out the best in people or if it is that you open yourself up more, and ask for help when you need it or possibly that when traveling those with you become your family for the trip. Whichever which way, the more I travel, the more White Knights I seem to acquire, and the more I appreciate all the goodness of character around me.
It is for this reason, that we are occasionally going to spotlight some of the White Knights in our travels. Below I mention a few of the White Knights of Travel that inspired this column.
The First Wife
Audrey Scott of Uncornered Market for happily accepting me as the second wife and keeping an eye out for when I might need one.
The Florence Nightingales
Jen Pollack Bianca of My Life’s A Trip and Audrey for being the kind of gals that I’d let in my room, when at my worst to ensure that I got fluids, didn’t dehydrate, and make sure I didn’t need a doctor.
The Big Brothers
The Tech Hero
Michael Tieso of the Art of Backpacking who fine tuned our site and got it back up and running after a traffic spike and unstable server slammed us, along with the Spring Cold, so I couldn’t think straight.
Thanks Dan, Ralph, Audrey, Jen, Tharwat, Jan and Michael!
I am sure we’ll be sharing other White Knights of Travel, but in the meantime, we’d love to hear about your White Knights of Travel in the comments below.
