I love to travel and enjoy planning the trips nearly as much as taking them. My husband and I usually travel together, but I have traveled alone on numerous occasions, often work-related. I have traveled to Europe (several times), Australia & New Zealand, Marshall Islands, Canada, Mexico and all of the 50 United States. I lived on a research ship for several months in the central Pacific.I plan our trips myself and we travel independently, usually staying in B&B's or pensions or rental apartments, using local transportation. We love hiking, walking, cycling, birding, history, meeting local people, train travel and learning about the world and its people and cultures. When we retired, we sold our house and began to travel full-time..First we took a 3-month driving trip through western Canada and Alaska. Next was a 2-month cruise to many Pacific islands. Now we are on a 2-year trip through Europe, North Africa and Asia. My reviews are my own personal opinion.
