"It is my wish that this story will inspire you to live your dream, whatever that may be."

In the summer of 2001, at fifty-three years old, Doris Maron sold everything she owned, except her motorcycle and a few personal belongings, to live a dream.

Her rewards would be to gain a wealth of education one simply cannot obtain from textbooks, to make lasting friendships around the globe, to experience other cultures, and to satisfy her passion to see the world.

Untamed Spirit: Around the World on a Motorcycle covers the first part of her journey and is an account of her experiences traveling as a lone woman into countries around the globe. Writing from her travel journals, she now shares her tales of her trek with the world. Hers are stories of adventure and challengeof living a dream.
