We love to travel.
For the past 20 years or so we have been fortunate to have had the desire and resources to travel to over 40 countries around the world.
We recently retired and have spent the last 18 months traveling around most of the USA and Canada, almost full time, and living in our 40" Monaco Motor Coach.
We have started a 9 1/2 month world trip on Jan. 13, 2008 and are looking forward to new adventures, visiting new places, trying new food and meeting new people.
Ready, Set, Go !!!
