How many countries have you been to?

At least 20, and adding more, most recently: Egypt. . . . . I have visited some countries for only a day on a stopover, some for a week or two.

What is your favorite travel experience?

Organized tours and spontaneous wanderings - the people make the difference. Excellent tour guides; encounters with local people and other tourists. Cultural contrasts and similarities fascinate me.

If money, time-off, and destination options were no object, name your dream adventure travel destinations?

The Space Station is my dream destination (sigh). I really want to view the earth from space. Oh well - plenty to see close-up here on the planet's surface too.

Are you in the travel industry? If so please explain.

42 (including Alaska and Hawaii). Still trying to figure out how and why I've missed the remaining 8 that are closer.

Would you like to organize (Lead or Co-Lead) an Adventure Travel trip? If so, name the destination?

No answer yet


I love travel - local, national & international. Add a bit of adventure (canoes & kayaks, hiking & swimming; historic sites; new foods; and interesting compatible companions) and I'm happy.
