Timathea Shays Workman is an author, teacher, photographer, and speaker who has traveled extensively around the globe leading tours to study everything from classic art in Europe to Grey whales in Baja. She has trekked through the Moroccan Sahara by camel to watch the sun rise over the red sand dunes, hiked across blue glaciers in Antarctica between penguin rookeries, visited remote islands in French Polynesia to learn bee keeping and dive with sharks, and conducted interviews on creativity and censorship with contemporary authors in China for an E.E. Ford Fellowship. She has led small group tours walking between villages along the Southwest Coast Path in Cornwall, exploring islands in the Adriatic, Ionian, and Aegean Seas, learning how to cook homemade ravioli on the Amalfi Coast, and sharing her favorite cafés and museums in London, Paris, Rome, and Manhattan. When she is not traveling, she teaches writing to students in high school and college extension courses and works as a freelance writer, editor, and bookmaker in Los Angeles.
Timathea’s unique travel journals are a highlight of every trip. These books teach the art of travel in a way that deepens travelers’ experiences as they learn to see the world through new eyes. They inspire travelers to find the often overlooked everyday details in their journey and collect them like treasures to keep the memories alive beyond the power of photographs. They offer a break from technology and tap into the inner journey that is sparked by new surroundings. The books always become the most cherished souvenir of each adventure.
