Joy of travel
This Sunday in the Star-Bulletin Travel section, we'll be introducing new columnist Joy Uyeno.
The frequent traveler will tell how she manages to save up and find educational opportunities and affordable air fare in "Hit the Road," geared toward the young or beginning traveler.
Some of the advice will be useful to any traveler, including issues of romance on the road and safety in foreign countries.
Her column will appear the second Sunday each month in the Travel section.
