Karen Lynn Dixon has over a decade of professional experience in the luxury hospitality and lifestyle industry working with the International Five Star Diamond Award and as an international travel journalist.  She believes that genuine hospitality is the best gift we may give to one another.  As a professional traveler and writer, she has spent tremendous amounts of solitary time on the road living and working in different countries, constantly feeling as if she belonged everywhere, yet nowhere at the same time.   Ultimately, she felt compelled to take a parallel journey inward toward deeper self-introspection and personal transformation. This is a place to share her self with others and to join along in the exploration.
