Since Jul 2004


Washington DC, District of Columbia

For as long as I can remember....I've loved to travel. It started with my parents, I guess. We went on vacations EVERY year. I remember taking the train cross-country when I was about 6 or 7 (yeah...sleeper cars!) to the west coast; visited the Grand Canyon and Disneyland. As a high school graduation gift, I went to Hawaii. Yup..that's where it started. And, OH YES...I love water, so just about ANY tropical destination works for me. I've been blessed to travel worldwide thanks to my job. Loved visiting Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo on business trips...but, it was kinda hard and scary doing it by myself. Just taught me that I can travel alone; met some interesting folks that way. I've been to most of the 50 states; also to Canada, Mexico and West Africa. Love the Caribbean (especially, Barbados). Just returned from my 2nd time in Aruba. Can't wait to visit South Arica. And, an European tour including London, Paris, Rome, Milan, Florence would be nice!
