This trip covers our retirement years in Woodland Park CO. It covers local trips in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, and Wyoming, and road trips back East, and tripos furthur afield to London, England and Paris, France with my daughters in January 2006; a trip with all three kids to Japan and Thailand in 2007; a cruise of the Alaskan Inside Passage for our 35th anniversary and a volunteer trip to Uganda in 2008; a trip to China, Thailand and Vietnam with my Mom and son in 2009; and a trip to Rome and Provence, Italy and the Cotswolds of England with one daughter and son in 2010. As of this writing we have planned trips in 2012 to Hawaii, American Samoa, Samoa, Fiji, Vanuatu, French Caledonia, Sydney, Australia, and New Zealand for our 40th anniversary. In future years we plan to visit South America, the Caribbean, Central Europe from Finland to the Baltics to the Balkans, until I visit at least 100 countries. So stay tuned.
