Reaching Way Over Yonder

The word ‘yonder’ is often used in the southern parts of the USA and is used to typically denote something that is of great distance from where you currently find yourself.

Liz Howard's topic concerns the challenges and obstacles, which she overcame during her personal journey to ‘way over yonder’ which turned out to be, of all places, Germany!
