Hometown: Chicago suburb
October 15, 2006
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.
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.
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.
42 (including Alaska and Hawaii). Still trying to figure out how and why I've missed the remaining 8 that are closer.

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.
