I'm a science teacher in my mid 60's. Started traveling when I was drafted and sent to Viet Nam. Saw a lot of that country and want to get back someday soon. Got to Sidney and Hong Cong on R&R and Saigon( HCM City).Travelled for 6 weeks in Europe/UK-Ireland in the 70's. Not much travel while raising 3 kids but when the nest emptied (including the ex) I went to South Africa as an exchange teacher. Mind blowing experience! I have been back 3 times since 2004. I feel I know a great deal about SA from an American's perspective. Been all over the country as well as parts of Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Just got back (1/05/09) from a week in Ireland.
