Most Memorable Travel Experience
Yellowstone Park with my family years and years ago is unforgettable. We were sleeping in a tent when a ranger came by and announced that there were a lot of bears in the area. I guess my dad watched over us all during the night, but we stayed. Another one is Pompeii. Walking down those ancient streets and getting a glimpse of what life was like there was incredible. Finally, visiting the American Cemetery in Normandie overlooking Omaha Beach blew me away.
I grew up in California, have spent most of my life in Spain lived in Warsaw, Poland, then Muscat, Oman for another 5 years. I'm currently in Qatar. I've always been interested in traveling and getting to know our beautiful planet, meeting people and learning about different cultures.
