    Travel Bug Bite Me Early

    I was fortunate to grow up in a military household which meant we moved A LOT. I believe the fact I moved so often made me the extreme extrovert I am today. As a kid, my attitude was,  "I here for a good time not a long time so if you choose to be my friend -great! If you don't...

    Thailand - What An Adventure!

    One of my happiest memories is sitting on a swing along the beach at a beautiful tropical island. I felt so peaceful and serene. During the day you lazed in a deckchair and drank fruit shakes and in the evening the place would be lit up by lanterns, it looked like I was in a...

    I don't really get to talk to many people about

    traveling. Surprisingly, most people don't really travel. I've been to 36 other countries since I was 19. My mom and dad never left their hometown. I don't get to travel much now cause that life but I miss it.

    Most of my travel occurred

    when I was in the US Navy 1980 to 1984. Diego Garcia was my first foreign country. It was a BIOT, British Indian Ocean Territory. It was a beautiful horse shoe shaped island with incredible shells. The funniest law from Great Britain reminded me of the strange actions of...
