From Country Bumpkin to World Traveler is a cool article about Rosalyn Pursley, age 69, who lives in Port Hudson, Missouri. (Written by Karen Myers, featured in Senior Times, eMissourian.)

Port Hudson, Missouri, isn't so much a town as it is a widening in the road. Closest actual town is Leslie, population 87.

Rosalyn didn't venture outside Missouri til after she graduated from high school.

Since then, Rosalyn began out-of-state vacations with her husband and children, later on duo trips with her daughter, and then eventually out on her own. Rosalyn's backpacked solo to Europe, Asia, Africa, the middle East, and South America.
