I try to travel out-of-country at least every other year and went to China this year for 2 1/2 weeks. Been to Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego (end of the world), Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, Budapest, Prague, Vienna and others. My list of places to see is long but I enjoy seeing videos or movies of places I have been able to get to (yet, of course)!
I try to learn some essential phrases for the countries I visit (I learned a little Mandarin for my China trip). I was fluent in Spanish and German and could get along in Norweign but they have fallen way away in the recent past. I would to learn languages especially if there are others you can enjoy the class with.
I love ethnic food and can recommend places to try. I cook and had an International Cooking Club for 15 years so I learned how to cook dishes from many parts of the world. Can show lots of pictures from my trips (not slides but digital - ha-ha).
I enjoy international travel and got to go to China earlier this year. Looking forward to meeting others who enjoy international activities closer to home.
