Joyce Brooks Travel
WHERE IN THE WORLD DO YOU WANT TO GO?
Joyce Brooks has probably been there, and in her book she reveals all the special places she has visited across the globe. She landed on her final continent, Antarctica, at the age of sixty-nine, thus the title “Seven Before Seventy”. Travel along with her to each of the seven continents for an insight into unique places to visit – or perhaps not to visit. You will chuckle and perhaps shudder as Joyce takes you with her on adventures as a Group Tour Leader and in her personal travels to the Seven Continents and many of the planet’s seas. Interesting destination history and insider tips are included along the way depicted in numerous pictures.
“Seven Before Seventy” is much more than a travelogue; her snapshots of history give a fascinating context to the many captivating anecdotes that intrigue and inspire. Joyce’s account of her travels is frank and honest…clearly, she has a taste for adventure, at time a little wary, but always willing to give most things a try once. Compelling reading!”

The Tourism Guru of Motivation Nation
Joyce Brooks exchanges adventure stories aboard the Marco Polo cruise ship with the master of extreme achievements, Peter Hillary. In the past twenty-five years, Peter has climbed Mt. Everest twice, forged a new route across Antarctica to the south Pole, was the first to traverse the length of the Himalayas, and is the author of five books (“In the Ghost Country” to be released in 2004). Peter actively assists his father, Sir Edmund Hillary (first man to reach Mt. Everest summit) in raising funds for schools and hospitals for the people of Nepal.
