Through Colorful Doors: A trilogy of a globetrotter's adventures through Ireland, Ecuador and Peru. (Paperback)
"Through Colorful Doors" is a trio of travelogues by Oregon author, Deleen Wills. If you fancied "Because of Colorful Doors," packed full of escapades and seeking her roots around bonnie Scotland, meandering through merry old England and exploring fascinating Cuba, you will be delighted with her newest collection from her traveler's perspective. "The Sapphire Door," an amusing short story in her first book, "Behind Colorful Doors," is based on her trip to Venice, Italy. Join her gallivanting through and searching for more roots in Ireland, communing with nature and blue-footed boobies in The Gal pagos islands in Ecuador and exploring ten thousand foot mountains in Machu Picchu and Peru. You'll feel like you're right there with her. Each story is overflowing with humor, culinary eye-openers, cultural faux pas and heartwarming disclosures, revealing even more discoveries through colorful doors. The bonus section of "Trip Tips" at the end of each journey shares helpful hints of what to do and what not to do. Deleen delights in working from her home as a travel coordinator organizing adventures for groups, family and friends, and volunteers for several nonprofit organizations. She lives in the beautiful Willamette Valley in Oregon with her husband. She is a retired administrator in nonprofit education. Her passions are globetrotting and writing. She strives to write stories that entertain, enlighten and educate, and in turn, hopefully encouraging others to gain new insight and realize how easy and enjoyable it is to embrace new friends and explore our world.
