The chapter on Peru in my book When Dreams are Calling has been featured in the Nov-Dec 2015 issue of International Traveller magazine – the highest selling travel magazine in Australia. You can buy the magazine at any newsstand in Australia or buy the book here or on Amazon and read more on Dora’s travels.
There, at the edge of an ancient forest, surrounded by bushes of wild blueberries, in the smell of pine trees, with me dressed in a simple white dress hand-embroidered with red cotton threads, wearing traditional leather sandals tied around my feet with a long, narrow strip and a wildflower crown on my head, we said our vows:
“I cannot promise you I will love you forever and ever. Eternity is not ours to promise. But I do promise to love you each day I will tell you that.”
“Honesty! Let’s see if I can match that. I cannot promise I will make you happy. Happiness is a game of two. But I do promise I will try harder each day and if won’t succeed I will set you free.”
“Freedom! Hard one to beat! I promise to stand by you in joy and sorrow, because next to you, my nest is not a prison and I am not an inmate, but a happy traveler through life and marriage.”
“Commitment! The most difficult part for some, easy when one has you. If in heaven He is our God, on Earth you are my Goddess.”

“This is a book that realizes the Ralph Waldo Emerson quote, “Life is a journey, not a destination.” Dora is on a journey, hoping that she realizes her dream, but having a great deal of fun as she goes many places, sees many things and lives life to the fullest. Even when Dora is experiencing a failure the reader can remain a bit jealous because she is doing so in a grand and glorious manner, not as a passive object accepting of the world.” – C Ashbacher
“Carol Vorvain’s wisdom seeped a little into my life as well, precisely when I needed it most! When I was feeling pretty lousy, When Dreams are Calling injected me with a much-awaited dose of optimism and faith in who I am, what I’m hoping for and what I’m dreaming of!” – Loredana Malic
“It’s a story that applies to most of us… unsettling and willing to accomplish our dreams, the book will give us the great advantage of being able to respond to the opportunities that arise in our life.” – EmilM
