I live in the great state of Texas, but I travel a lot around The US, Latin America, Europe and Africa for work. When I'm away from home, I always try to connect in some way to the places I visit. Favorite places so far are Portugal; Lyon and Paris, France; El Salvador; Costa Rica; Palm Springs, California; the Republic of South Africa. I miss my family when I travel, so I spend all my air miles to get them to come along when possible. We're planning trips to Calgary, Alberta (Banff) and Italy in the late Spring. Glad to share my experiences with this online community.
