Countries I've Traveled To
Languages Spoken
I've studied Polish, Russian, and Spanish. It's been awhile and I doubt it I can carry on any kind of conversation other than ordering food and beer now! Wait, that's all I need!
Books you might find in my backpack
Music you might find me listening to while waiting for my plane
Most Memorable Travel Experience
Shark dive in South Africa, the ocean proved more deadly than the sharks...
Chillin in Berlin with new found friends, 5 a.m. anyone?
Playing Texas Hold'em at $100 a hand at an underground casino in Cairo, held my own, for a while...
The Louvre, not enough time.
Auschwitz, unforgettable.
The trains all through Europe, especially across Switzerland. Sleeping on the floor of the train station in Monaco, when I had a nice hotel room only a 30 minute ride away...LOL
Feeling my money clip w/all my cash/cards slip out of my pocket as I lie on a dock in Montreux. I save the cash/cards lost the clip. Whew!
I feel sorry for people that never leave their 'safe place'. I love to travel, even if I don't enjoy a place or the people there, I learn to appreciate where I'm from even more, but usually, I take away very positive experiences from my travels. It's very reassuring to know that perception is not reality, because as the world seems to burn, I meet fantastic people everywhere I go, even in places where I'm not supposed to. The world is a beautiful place, and I intend on exploring every nook and cranny!
