About Sheridan Lucas:
“I was a navy brat who made my first cross-country trip when I was two weeks old, in a cardboard box on the seat of my parents’ car. I think that imprinted me for travel, like a baby duck, and I’ve been going ever since. When I was 20, I went to Europe and hitch-hiked around for 8 months, then resumed my education. After graduation from Berkeley in 1975 ( during which time I worked as a proofreader and editorial assistant), I moved to Oregon, got married, built a house and now manage my personal timber stand in the country, outside of Portland.
I participate in a lot of sports and have cycled from Canada to San Francisco, in the Caribbean, and in various European countries. I also trekked for two weeks in the Andes and eventually, I want to do more. My favorite countries so far are Turkey, Morocco andPeru. I enjoy active travel and especially like to see folklore or dance festivals that involve local costumes, fabrics and handwork. I also like to interact with the locals, like the time when I rode the third class bus with a pig on the roof and the chickens inside, in Guatemala. That is where you gain the most authentic and interesting experiences. I would say that I am inquisitive and intrepid. The only way we’re going to have peace in this world is by really getting to know each other. Some other interests- and I have many- are theater, dancing, music, singing and reading.”READ MORE
