Summer was stuck in Peru

For a lot of Americans, the idea of traveling – being away from home – is just a routine part of life.

Whether it’s a business trip or a vacation, getting on an airplane to go somewhere is pretty common. Most of us don’t think twice about it.

But that’s not everyone. A recent survey of 2000 Americans revealed some interesting numbers.

13% have never flown in an airplane.

40% of those questioned said they have never left the country.

And 11% of these people said they have never even been outside of the state where they were born.

Those are some surprising statistics, but the fact remains that a lot of people here in the US still love to travel.

And my guest today, Summer, was one of those people. She’s traveled all over the country, as well as internationally. And most of the time, it all went fine.

What was scary was the time she left the United States, and couldn’t come back.
