Most Memorable Travel Experience
I've traveled for a long time and have many memories of places and people. I can't name just one. Every journey brings with it a new set of experiences. Hopefully, there will be many more to add!
Profile
I enjoy travel, especially to new places I haven't seen before. Every journey, whether brief or extended, provides the opportunity for a new experience or a different way to see things. I like travel photography, too, and always have my camera with me.

Thanks, Andy, for the congrats on my featured review of "Panorama of the Battle of Racławice" in Poland. Glad to hear you found it interesting too as one of those 'lost arts' so to speak. Another cyclorama now in Gettysburg was originally displayed in Boston in 1884 until it was sold to the National Park Service in 1940, and first displayed at the Gettysburg park visitors center in 1962. As an aside, Boston still has a cyclorama of the Battle of Bunker Hill at the Bunker Hill museum. In any event, these are rather rare things from a bygone age, but it is good some of them have been preserved and are available to see.
