High Roads to Adventure

 

Hi Friends! I’m Kelly and growing up some of my nicknames were Coco & Betty, thus the name Coco Betty. Feel free to call me Coco, I still answer to it. I empower women to love themselves through travel, one trip at a time.

I must be frank and tell you that I, too, wondered if I should venture behind the Berlin Wall, alone.

Being an adventurous person, curiosity got the better of me and the more I saw and heard, the farther I was tempted to go. Here is my story.
