Where have you had memorable travel experiences?

All over the world. They were all memorable in their own unique way. Sounds of Africa in the pre dawn mornings, or the outback of Australia. A Turkish bath (hamam) in Turkey and the fairy chimineys of Goreme. On the back of motorcycles in Indonesia and friends in Ubud, Bali and the Cameron Highlands of Malaysia. I love the smell of morning air in all the countries I have visited, the sounds of local birds or animals.

Would you like to present on a place you've been? If so, where?

Yes I would consider presenting. Of course my greatest accomplishment was my around the world trip. Two elderly women travelling alone and I had never been away from North America when I did it. It was sooo exciting and I didn't know if I would last a year but instead I could have gone longer.

Which countries or places are you interested in exchanging information about?

I have probably been to 35 countries and would share any info about them that I can.

What would you like to get out of this Meetup group?

Learning about all the places that I have not been to and sharing about the ones I have.

Please list all of the places you've been (to make it easy to exchange information with other members).

Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia (Bali, Java, Samatra), Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Kenya, Egypt, Turkey, Greece, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, England, Majorica, Goa, Peru, Mexico, (and many states of the USA).


I am a seasoned traveller and one year in[masked] I backpacked around the world with a friend and visited 27 countries. I have been on every continent. Did a 9 week camping safari in Africa, visited Machu Picchu & will do a Med. Cruise this fall.
