Taking to heart the words of Confuscius who mused, “wherever you go, go with all, your heart,” peripatetic global pilgrim Becca Hensley is fueled by curiosity. Widely published in magazines and newspapers around the world, this Austin-based, award winning poet and journalist loves to tell stories. With gusto, she’s hiked with Silverback gorillas in Rwanda, walked with elephants in Thailand, supped with a maharaja in India, dated a matador in Spain, biked the Alps of Austria, sipped yak tea in the Yunnan, breaststroked with sea lions in Australia, and made wine in Uruguay—among other adventures
