I've always loved to travel, but time, money and work, limited the opportunities. Retirement has solved at least two of the above limitations so now I'm traveling every chance I get. Friends and family encouraged me to share my travel experiences through journaling, pictures and e-mail, but I like the idea of blogging better. Unlike journaling it provides an outlet for pictures and I don't have to decide who I think will want to get an e-mail from me. My family will be happier too because they won't have to sit through an 800 picture slide show upon my return. (Unless they beg me of course.)
So I'll be traveling here and there, not praying, (well, maybe when I get lost or miss the train) not loving, (well I can always hope) but definitely eating (any and all cuisines). I travel sometimes by myself (yes, over 60 and going it alone when I have to) sometimes with family and friends, and sometimes with travel buddies I meet along the way. I'll be blogging about the logistics of travel, the food, and culture of a place, my experiences and recommendations, and the people I meet along the way. I hope this blog sends the message that it can be safe, fun, and very rewarding to travel (and not always on a tour) and I hope it sparks the wanderlust within you!
