In the first installment of a three-part series on living in the grip of insecurity, New York Times travel writer Liz Kreutz tells the story of how she spent three weeks living like an insecure traveler in Italy, where she met a man who took her back to her apartment for a week-long vacation.
The New York City-based author’s trip, a return to her hometown of Venice, was a revelation.
Her experiences, while painful, were also inspiring, and the lesson she drew is not to give up.
She writes: You can’t always be certain.
But the more you try, the more sure you’ll be.
