Travelling gives you the power, to change distance into nearness

Welcome -

The world gets its value from the extreme and its existence from the average.
However extreme and interesting my ancestors may be, I'm just the average.
I'm Elisabeth, a former Stewardess in USA then staitioned in New York, but ow back in Austria again, and - you may call me Liz.

In Journeys I'd like to invite you to fly, sail, ride and track with me and this way sharing experience in travelling, exchanging pictures,
now and then read between my lines in Aphorisms, see my page Charity, or even join my Chaarity Auctions on eBay below.

So Click what ever seems interesting for you - this website is done also in German and Italian.
You might also be of some help detecting information about my interesting ancestors, referring to page 'privat' > That's Me.
By the way - I am not a tour guide !
