I feel very fortunate to have traveled to over 30 countries and experienced a variety of different cultures, customs, and climates. I feel that travel helps opens my eyes, mind and heart. In the words of Mark Twain “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow mindedness”.
I enjoy sharing my experiences with others and offering recommendations and tips of things to see and do. I am a Google Local Guide Level 8 and have made over 6,000 contributions to to Google Maps (reviews, photos, and updates), which have garnered nearly 30 million views.
I have written more in-depth reviews for places I have visited multiple times. Click on the links below to see my travel guides for certain countries and cities (more to come – Australia, Costa Rica, Tuscany, Prague, Park City…).
