About Me

Since Oct 2008

Lives in USA


I am an intrepid traveler and enjoy the adventure of the unexpected. My favorite vacation activity is wandering in markets in whatever place I might be- I may not buy anything, but I truly enjoy seeing what the local population has on offer. I've also generally avoided group tours and use local transportation whenever I can figure it out. I also relish the chance to meet people from the place I'm visiting and am always grateful when they offer to show me a favorite place or accompany me to a specific attraction. Many of my travels have been as part of business trips so I am often traveling alone and my travel choices often reflect that reality. My travels have taken me to 49 of the 50 US states and 24 foreign countries, some several times... and counting!
