I have always enjoyed travel. When I was younger I loved the excitement of seeing and experiencing new places. The first sight of the mountains and the ocean are still in my mind.
With age my travel became more purposeful. It has become an opportunity to study a new part of the world; to understand its history, culture, and people. What I learn has makes more sense when I can connect it to a place I have visited and often the actual site an event took place. It makes it real and understandable.
Of course, there is simply the escape and relaxation the goes with some travel. I can enjoy that but often not for long.
Below is a list of my travel blogs.
