April NEWS: Plant seeds and Watch them GROW!
At times over the last few years, I have wondered if I am making progress. Was leaving teaching to write about travel the right choice? Lately, I see that the seeds I have been planting are taking root and growing! I am very proud of my accomplishments!
My trip to the Solomon Islands for two weeks in March was incredible and I am working on my story for Smithsonian. I have 31 videos to share from my adventures and will have more articles to share soon. I hosted a twitter chat and shared many photos which can now be seen on my Instagram about my trip. I have over one million video views, I am verified on Twitter and all my social media accounts are growing! Thank you for all of your amazing support!
I am now the Adventure Correspondent for The Jet Set! See my first segment about Utah and skiing with the visually impaired here. I also reported about my first ride on the Winter Comet Olympic Bobsled! Did you see my interview on The Jet Set: Interview of Lisa Niver: Transformational Travel
I loved flying on Delta and reading my article about Fabien Cousteau in Delta Sky Magazine! That was amazing! And I loved when Fabien Cousteau shared about the article when he flew on Delta and read about himself in my article. What a great month!
I traveled to New York City to celebrate a family birthday and Passover. I also went to the Auto Show to learn more about the e-Grand Prix as I am going to Monaco for a race in May! I have new two stories on Sheknows:

- Where to stay in NYC? I loved my stay at the DoubleTree By Hilton and I love their new Cook(ie)Book! Read more about it here!
I also LOVED being at the Sugar Sand Festival in Clearwater Florida. I love sand art sculptures and this festival supports a local elementary school! Photos and video are coming soon!
- My first hockey game: LA Kings
- My first NCAA Basketball Game with the Penn Quakers

I love the Oprah and Deepak 21-day Meditation Challenge. Recently Oprah said: “Let life carry you. Life is the dancer and you are the dance.” She also said, “Be one with life. You don’t live your life, life lives you!”
Thank you for your support. Lisa
