Behind the Scenes with Eric Trules

Thrilled to be a guest on Eric Trules of E-travels fame. He is an avid traveler who enjoys spotlighting others who suffer from the same addiction. Please take a moment to listen to my interview with Eric.

Today I’ll be talking with Linda Ballou, an accomplished travel and adventure writer who challenges her readers to self-actualize and make their own dreams come true.  
Linda is a rugged individualist who knows that she needs tall mountains and shady glens to stay in balance. She enjoys reading travel narratives and historical archives about a place before visiting it… because she doesn’t want to go to a destination until she has a sense of what’s going on behind the gorgeous scenery… which she tries to see with wonder and a sense of humor. She aims to get to as many beautiful places in the world that she can – before they are no more.
Like her travel writing hero, Tim Cahill, she tries not to take herself too seriously. Her historical novel, “Wai-nani: A Voice from Old Hawaii”, lets us see the traditional island society as it existed when Captain James Cook arrived at Kealakekua Bay in 1779. Linda spent 20 years researching and writing the book, immersing herself in historical Hawaiian culture, but shortly before she published it, she was told by protective locals that she would have 200 years bad luck if she did so. Linda bravely persevered and fortunately, that wasn’t the case!
So much more revealed in this candid converstion with Eric Trules. Behind the Scenes with Linda
