Most Memorable Travel Experience
Traveling cross country twice, also trip to Asia (Hong Kong,Bangkok,Thailand, and Singapore) Now I can add Japan and China to that, as well! Also, took my mom to Ireland for her 70th birthday, and last year I took my dad on a Mediterranean cruise to celebrate his retirement, and revisit the ports of his navy days!
