From lodging in a lavish, yet inexpensive hotel in Costa Rica that literally brought the Rainforest inside the shower room, frog included, to practical being able to reach out and touch the Duomo in Florence, Italy.
Yvonne A.K Johnson grew up with travel as an important part of her life. Her parents taught her that education and experience are highly valued tools that help build character, maturity, and wisdom. A pivotal travel experience for Yvonne was when she took a trip to Germany with her German teacher, Frau Ritter, during her junior year of high school. This trip covered a lot of “firsts” which makes it quite memorable to Yvonne, as it was her first trip abroad without her family. She remembers the first feelings of jet lag, using traveler’s checks, and having to budget for her trip as she paid for everything herself. This was a monumental experience in Yvonne’s development as this was the first time she was truly on her own and felt like she had bridged the gap from child to adult. A most memorable highlight of that trip to Germany was visiting The Black Forest (Schwartzwald) as well as Castle Neuschwanstein.
As Yvonne’s mother’s side of the family is from Montenegro, visiting this part of the Mediterranean is one of the important trips on her bucket list. A few other places Yvonne has next on her list include: Japan, Norway, New Zealand, Australia, the Caribbean, and Nova Scotia. Yvonne tries to take each travel opportunity whenever it arises and in the distant future, she wishes to host tours of some of her favorite visited places.
Travel is a huge part of Yvonne’s life and she feels grateful for every opportunity to travel as it expands her perspectives and in turn, benefits her artistry.
