Travel is my passion. I go alone, I go with friends and sometimes think about going with groups; not yet however, not while I can still move on my own. I have visited over 130 countries and hope to add 5 new ones every year.
The most difficult part of taking off is leaving my 3-year-old Panamanian Schnauzer behind(I adopted her when I was living in Boquete, Panama). Now I am living in the Pacific Northwest close to a brother and a sister who care for her when I’m travelling.
Update: moved back to San Diego, easier to get to new countries… and just read an interesting article someone sent to me explaining that there is a genetic reason why I travel! Need I say more?
My dog is now eight years old and my list of countries is getting longer. This year I added Antarctica, Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana and Cyprus. Since F.G. is actually just a Republic I added the demilitarized Zone in the Koreas thinking that perhaps two halves make a whole.
I have also done two group trips; both were very rewarding and worthwhile. Life is good and I realize I’m luckier than most having such wonderful opportunities to travel.
