Fernweh

A German word for which there is no English translation. It is basically the opposite of homesickness (Heimweh): when you feel that you have to leave your familiar surroundings to discover new places. It is the need for distance, the wish to experience something far away from home, the urge to escape from your everyday life by travelling.

Beth Benedetto, a lifelong resident of Rowan County, has been traveling the world with her husband, Vince, living their dream, for 17 years.

“I’ve been there. Done it. Experienced it,” she says, of problems that travelers can encounter. Her goal is to help you avoid those problems.

People have the idea that travel is out of reach, she says. “That they will never be able to see the things on their ‘bucket list.’

“My business is about you. You need an agent who looks out for you so that you will be able to see God’s beautiful world.”

Beth is a graduate of East Rowan High School and Kings College. She previously worked for the State of North Carolina.
