The Vicarious Traveler
- Alternating Saturdays, 9:00am–10:00am
A first generation San Franciscan, born of Dutch and German parents who were avid travelers (her father traveled over a million miles the year she was 16), Vicki and her brother Robbie were taken on many trips during their childhood. Usually without a set itinerary, only a beginning and ending date, travel was always an adventure and it continues to be so. During the forty plus years that Vicki has lived in Pt. Reyes Station, she raised two lovely children and opened her shop, Cabaline Country Emporium. Involvement with various non-profits and volunteer organizations, participation in yoga, the international folk dance community, women’s chorus, horseback riding, organic gardening, numerous pets, friends, and visitors, has kept her quite busy. Vicki began traveling through the radio waves with her show The Vicarious Traveler in 2003. Due to her insatiable curiosity, she has continued to explore various parts of the planet...always enjoying magical and amazing journeys as near as hidden gems in California and as far away as even more hidden areas of Tibet. Relishing the opportunity to interview people regarding their passions, work, adventures and lives, Vicki found local folks who had gone just about everywhere…from the mundane to the obscure. Then folks from all around the world began finding her, wanting to share their tales and adventures. There has been and will continue to be many wonderful and interesting stories which these fascinating people are gracious enough to share with Vicki and KWMR listeners. Do yourself a favor and listen in!
