Here’s what's new at since our last issue of Living the Adventuress Life:

Pam gets lost in Venice. Her advice? Avoid These 7 Mistakes

The Art of Caro

We are completely addicted to creating ADULT COLORING BOOKS for your fun and relaxation.

Now don't be put off by the word "adult!"

These coloring books are full of elegant, intricate design patterns, not x-rated pix...

The mental health community touts coloring as a relaxing, meditative activity for busy adults like us.

The Art of Caro is the first adult coloring book from Swift House Press. The second book, Color Caro's Mystic Mandalas should be available at next week.

These books will also make thoughtful gifts for your friends and family this holiday season!


Have you had a memorable adventure you’d like to share?

We welcome your travel stories from home and around the world.

You don’t have to be a "professional writer" to submit a story. A breezy, letter-home-to-your-best-friend approach suits us just fine, with a few facts thrown in, of course. 

We like your personal observations, how you felt about the place, what you ate, your most embarrassing moment, etc. CLICK HERE to learn more about the perfect length of your essay, and how to submit photos along with it.
