Pam Canington is a Jacksonville, Florida native (go Jaguars!) married to a career Navy man (now retired). After a 2004 military transfer to the Chicagoland area, they now call Illinois home. They have two grown children deep in studies (a soon-to-be PhD and a soon-to-be Army officer). Pam has been a legal secretary for almost 30 years and takes the Metra train from suburban Algonquin to downtown Chicago where her favorite attorney boss is located. Part of her enthusiasm for writing stems from typing lengthy court pleadings every day. Pam has written travelogues for almost every vacation or trip she’s been on, whether with family or just friends. Not only does it give her pleasure to share her experiences with others, but it helps remind her of places and activities she tends to forget about. Pam’s favorite activities are reading, listening to music, and playing games on her iPhone.
About I Went, I Saw, I Shared:
Hop on a bus, train, cruise ship, airplane, taxi, or even a cable car and travel to places hither and yon through the words of Pam Canington, as she takes you on her adventures in her exciting memoir I Went, I Saw, I Shared. It will have you exploring ancient European cities (In Rome we hiked to the Bocca della Verita (The Mouth of Truth) which is the “mask of a river god” with an open mouth and is said to close on the hands of liars, cutting off their fingers); visiting various United States destinations (In Washington, D.C. we had a special pass to enter the House of Representatives Gallery…where the President delivers his State of the Union speeches); and setting sail on multi-day ocean voyages (At Dunns River Falls in Jamaica, it was pretty steep and very rocky. The water flowing down at a fast rate looked, felt, and sounded like a thunderous rainstorm), among many other expeditions. Perhaps you’ll be ready to pull out a map and start an itinerary for your next vacation!
