March NEWS: Where in the Wonderful World is Lisa?

When this newsletter publishes, I will be in the South Pacific with little to no Wi-Fi! I want to say thank you for your support of me on my journey with We Said Go Travel! In 2017, I have written for Delta Sky Magazine, Luxury Magazine, Sierra Club Magazine and am currently on assignment for Smithsonian.  I have been working to build We Said Go Travel one step, one word, one video, one day at a time. I now have over one million video views and many print and online articles. I am grateful that you have been walking this road with me.

Where did I travel in March?

Where in the world is Lisa?I accepted a challenge to ski at all three Vail Resorts in Lake Tahoe, California as part of my 50 new things before I am 50. I have two stories about it for Sheknows:

I loved Kirkwood, Heavenly and Northstar for different reasons and cannot wait to go back. See all four of my videos below.

I am currently on assignment in the Solomon Islands. I promise to share video and photos from my adventures as soon as I am back in the land of Wi-Fi.

As my fortune cookie said: “Pack your bags. You are bound for an exciting destination.”  I will leave you with an Irish story for St. Patrick’s Day. Thank you for your support. Lisa

This “Irish Blessing” was shared with me on St. Patrick’s day 2017
His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog.
 
There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death. 
 
The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman’s sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved. 
 
‘I want to repay you,’ said the nobleman. ‘You saved my son’s life.’

‘No, I can’t accept payment for what I did,’ the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer’s own son came to the door of the family hovel.
 
‘Is that your son?’ the nobleman asked.

‘Yes,’ the farmer replied proudly. 
  
‘I’ll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own son will enjoy. If the lad is anything like his father, he’ll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of.’ And that he did.
 
Farmer Fleming’s son attended the very best schools and in time, graduated from St Mary’s Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin. 
  
Years afterward, the same nobleman’s son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia. What saved his life this time? Penicillin. 
 
The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill … His son’s name?
 
Sir Winston Churchill 
 
Someone once said:  What goes around comes around.  
  •  Work like you don’t need the money.
  •  Love like you’ve never been hurt.
  •  Dance like nobody’s watching.
  •  Sing like nobody’s listening.
  •  Live like it’s Heaven on Earth. 
AN IRISH FRIENDSHIP WISH: 
  • May there always be work for your hands to do;
  • May your purse always hold a coin or two;
  • May the sun always shine on your windowpane;
  • May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;
  • May the hand of a friend always be near you;
  • May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
