How many countries have you been to?

Yikes...probably 15 or so... Just returned from Europe (have been there several times) Lets see: India (lived there for 2 years +, China (Lived there for 1 year) +, Russia, Egypt, Greece, Macedonia, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Italy, France, Ireland, Holland, Switzerland, Belgium, England, Australia, New Zealand, Guyana, Peru...I may be forgetting a few, but that's the basics. ...and to think I had never gotten onto a plane until I was 20! I

What is your favorite travel experience?

Living in India...Too hard to capture in a few sentences...I love the country, the people and their culture. The work I was doing there (volunteer work with Mother T) was amazing and fulfilled a life dream. Next favorite: My first trip to Europe...backpacking for 4 weeks through Paris, Roma and London with only 300USD and a Eurrail pass! That is when I captured the "bug" for traveling and havent stopped since!

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

4 months in Tanzania or Zimbabwe (Nov-Feb) 2 months in Italy--ome, Venice, Assisi (March and April) 2 months in France Paris, Giverney (May and June 4 months in a new destination Ive never been --Maybe Cambodia, Laos (July-October) 4 months in India (November-Feb) and start it all over again!

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

Less than 10! Mostly for family obligations... California Florida Wisconsin Indiana Michigan Missouri I always thought I would save US destinations for when I retire and cant get on a plane!

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

Possibly...I would first like to get to know others in the group before I make such a commitment.
