Most Memorable Travel Experience
getting pulled by dolphins in the puerto plata(DR).
independence day in panama city(PA) they really know how to party
the first time i ever saw the statue of liberty.
snorkeling 7 miles off the coast of key west(FL)
watching the bellagio water show from the top of the eiffel tower.
i love to do lots of research on a place before i visit. helps me understand whats available and develop a good itinerary, which i reserve the option to completely deviate from if i so choose.

a little about who i am:

okay i spent 4 years in the US Navy and followed it with almost 8 years as a police officer. i'm now an operator at a power plant. its pretty much doing the same thing i did in the navy. figure while i have the schedule and financial resources to travel, i want to do as much of it as i can. (navy put that in me)

I'm a non smoker but i do drink. There are times when i party and am the life of it(the sailor in me). Other times i just like to sit back and people watch(the officer in me).

i joined travbuddy because i really liked the concept of it. i mean lots of single people dont ALWAYS want to travel or party in a new place alone. i have navy friends that i still talk to from my navy days. thats 17 years ago from when i first went it. Am hoping TB would also produce great friends for me. love of travel being the initial common denominator and growing from that. if you connect with someone thats willing to split the room, sure, you can save afew dollars that way. to me TB can be more that. i'd really just like to meet new people

Feel free to ask whatever it is you'd like to know. theres a link to tons of pictures on my myspace page.
