The way I see it, there is a great, big beautiful world out there - so why shouldn't I take time and explore and enjoy it? I' m doing just that, as you will see after reading my travel exploits through the years. I believe its time to broaden my excursions, so Europe, Asia and other parts of the world - Here I come!

Don't think I plan to leave the USA out of the travel plans - I still have lots of states to see. Here's what my past travel looks like:
