How did you become interested in travel.

My first trip was in 1988 with my parents,,,, on a tour,,, to Korea and Hong Kong. I loved it. I also realized I prefer traveling independently rather than tours. I love the cultures, smells, sounds and sights experienced in another country,,,, and even in some areas of the USA.

Where have you traveled?

UK 3-4 times (including Ireland), Korea, Hong Kong, Kathmandu Nepal, Central America, Peru, South Africa, China, all over Europe several times. I taught English in Czechoslovakia (as it was known in 1990) for 7 months and traveled to surrounding countries on weekends. I don't think I've forgotten any place.

What are your future plans/hopes on travel?

I must do New Zealand for 6-8 weeks. Also interested in the Scandinavian countries,,, and anywhere else if the opportunity arises.

What kinds of information, advise or help would you like from the group?

Listen and share travel experiences.

Are you intersted in finding travel partners?

Occasionally I am.


My name is Ila Lewis. I've been retired for 10 years. Have lots of hobbies/interests and one of them is travel. I've done a lot of traveling over the past years, both abroad and domestic. I'm looking forward to being a part of your group.
