PARAMUS, N.J. — Andrea Holmes's travels have taken her from Paramus to all corners of the globe.
Recently, she went to Africa -- and compiled a selection of photos to share with Daily Voice readers ( see above ).
"Seeing Africa was a life-changing experience for me," said the 74-year-old Maywood native, who once served as superintendent of the River Dell Regional School District.
"I admit I was scared; I was afraid of the animals, the food, the people, the climate -- just about everything," she said. "But I came home enthralled with a new respect for animals in the wild, the culture and caring and joyous nature of the people, and the delicious natural food.
"I would go back in a heartbeat."
