How we travel


This is the beginning of a site on our travels in 41 countries over 43 years.  We’re eager to share our experiences of sights, cultures, engaging people, history, and more.  There will be about 15 more pages coming over the next months.  They’ll be by topic.  The next one is Cars, presenting our many adventures, challenges, and views on the use of cars.

Please note: The embedded images are invisibly watermarked.  I’m happy to share them if you want to use them personally.  If you want to use them commercially, please contact me.

The text here has small images imbedded.  You can see higher-res images, commonly at 2560 pixels on the long dimension, just by clicking on the small images.

We travel on our own.  One group tour made us certain that such is not for us, ever.  Planning our own trip, carrying it out in real time takes us to people we want to meet and places we want to see… and it’s an endless thrill, kind of edgy more than once (or thirty times).  We can stop where we want
