Most Memorable Travel Experience
The Travbuddy Antarctica cruise was amazing! I loved everything (except maybe the rough seas on the Drake Passage) and made some good friends along the way.

My first trip to Germany I went solo and found myself in a restaurant asking for the "Reisekarte". The waiter gave me a funny look and returned with a menu. As I was reading the menu I realized I wanted the "Speisekarte" - I had asked for a travel planner! (I guess it isn't very "memorable", but it was funny!)

I loved spending a day at Mons Klint (Denmark) picking up fossils on the beach with the temperature around freezing. Hiking the Cinque Terra was gorgeous. I also loved the day I decided to skip my flight home and spend the day playing in a canyon in New Mexico.
Profile
My dear friends, I'm so sorry that we will lose this connection on Travbuddy when it closes :( I enjoyed friendships with many of you here and in real life. I will miss this community, everyone in it, and the wealth of information.

Unfortunately, I'm not on Facebook. If it changes in the future, I will look you up. For now, I am only on Instagram: 4nhand

I'm looking into Travlerspoint and TravelBlog, so I'll post that info if I join either site.


I don't get to travel as much as I used to, but I am always looking ahead to my next trip.

I am also a member of Twin Cities Bronze, a professional handbell ensemble. It is something I have dreamed about for several years. I am so excited to be playing bells again!
