Profile
While I have a wealth of travel related information and anecdotes, I may not have much posted here. I was an avid contributor to VT website for 12yrs - writing on more than 80 countries and 1000 locations - but the website was closed. Mustering that amount of writing again may take a long while. So what I post here from my travels starting no earlier than 2016 are merely a sampling of the adventures I've had.
