WHERE IN THE WORLD?
"THE WORLD IS A BOOK, AND THOSE WHO DO NOT TRAVEL READ ONLY A PAGE."
-- SAINT AUGUSTINE
I love to travel. For me, it's a chance to change the scenery, experience new cultures and immerse myself in what the world has to offer. Whether it's dining in Italy, visiting historical landmarks in France and artifacts in Vienna, or just relaxing on a beach in the Caribbean, I'm compelled to explore it all.
Visit my gallery to see some of the interesting places I have been. There certainly have been many more people who travel far more often that I can afford to, but that doesn't mean I am not trying to catch up!
