Award winning author Teresa O'Kane writes from around the world and from her home in San Jose California. She has restored old homes, owned and operated a small business, sailed a catamaran to Hawaii, lived in Africa and traveled the seven continents all with her lover and husband (same person) Scott. She earned her degree in Economics from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, which is where she learned to see the humor in life and commerce and that experiences, not things, have the greatest value.
When she is not in Africa or out exploring new destinations, Teresa writes about travel and gives lectures on Africa, budget travel, and The Camino de Santiago, a 500 miles pilgrimage across Spain.
