Most Memorable Travel Experience
White water rafting down the Zambezi River from Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and canoe and camping trip on flat water below.

Skiing on the South Island of New Zealand.

Camel ride in Morocco, camping out with Berbers in the desert that night, star gazing from a dune in the Sahara, kissing a cobra in the marketplace in Marrakech.

Moonlight walk over the Charles Bridge in Prague and the changing of the guard at the castle.

Biking through the Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali.

Tug of war with a sea lion while snorkling in the Galapagos.
My standing New Year's resolution each year is to visit at least one new country each year. I have kept my resolution since 1984! I satisfied the resolution for 2008 -- Thailand and Cambodia -- SWEET! And I just completed 2009 by visiting my oldest son in Italy. Now to plan for 2010 . . . . Argentina?
