VANCOUVER- After spending 35 years in the workforce, baby zoomers Irene and Rick Butler decided to realize a life long dream. So they sold their business, packed up their bags and headed on a trek around the world.

Trekking the Globe with Mostly Gentle Footsteps: Twelve Countries in Twelve Months(which includes a foreword by Robin Esrock, co-host of Word Travels a TV series which airs on OLN and The National Geographic Adventure TV Channel) is an account of their trials and tribulations on a journey across four continents. Their personal challenge was to travel for the same cost as staying at home, while still adhering to their older traveller’s motto “we are not here to suffer.†As they immersed themselves in other cultures, their intention was to tread with Gentle Footsteps leaving behind favourable impressions. The Mostly refers to times when their footsteps, as a result of misunderstandings, were less than ideal leading to bizarre, hair raising or humorous incidents.

However, nothing could deter these intrepid Canadian travelers ¬¬– not even being forced off a train at gun-point at the Polish border or having their motor scooter collide with a truck in India. Join the Butlers as they learn many valuable travel lessons, including the most valuable lesson of all “expect the unexpected.†Conclusively, their year away was more daring, enlightening and wondrous than any previous twelve months in their lives.
