Has it ever happened to you? You didn't know someone but had an instant affection towards her by just reading her work or about her. Oh yea, it just happened to A.S. It was like an 'Aha' moment. She's got an instant fan in A.S. Well this charming lady is none other than Janice Waugh. You may not know her like you know Oprah Winfrey but I'm sure they are both awesome in their own ways. Janice started the SoloTravelerBlog in 2009 and since then has garnered a wide readership.
What does A.S like about her? Firstly, her distinct somewhat signature look. That white hair on a youthful face is just so uniquely Janice. The charming smile and you should watch the video below to see how poise and composed, the way she speaks, such a warm and friendly lady.
Secondly, anyone who does solo travelling, especially a lady, is already A,S's instant friend. There's so much we can talk about and share... if only we met. She seems to have been to many places A.S aspires to go and being someone her age, (of which many travel with tour groups) but she, on her own, is just superbly inspiring to A.S.
Thirdly, she ran a successful conference, trade show and publishing company with her husband before the business was sold and became a writer/ speaker as she travels solo discovering this planet earth where we live in. Compared to her, what A.S did in 2010 was nothing. In one of her blogpost, Janice wrote 'Solo travel is an experience like none other. It allows you to enjoy a place on your own terms – without the distractions or schedule of others. It gives you time for contemplation and personal growth."
Affection requires first getting to know. Whether it is a 1 minute read or a 2 hours meeting, that's still a process, of getting to know. Do not fret, but instead reach out for you 'll never know who you'll read, meet and greet.

-A.S has been back in KL, Malaysia since Aug 16th, 2012 from a total of 3 months in Spain and then, Austria. Burdened with lots of thoughts, plans and to-dos, she'll still try her very best to keep this blog alive. Thank you so much for keeping up with her delays.
