About Me

“Life is a journey.  Traveling is like living twice.”

I saw this scrawled on the wall of a train underpass while walking the El Camino in Galicia, Spain, and I couldn’t agree with it more.

Traveling surprises. Traveling stretches who you are.  Here are some stories about my travels.  Some are published articles and others are informal thoughts, sounds & images.  I hope they inspire you to break away from the known and test life’s fragile boundaries.

As a kid I stared at maps and read books about pirates.  I spent many barefoot summers on an island in Canada.  As a high school student in the late 60’s, I hitchhiked across the USA and Canada – hey, it was the only way I could afford to get around.

Then I became responsible and kept relatively dormant until I was about 34.  First Mexico, then Europe, then my first job overseas.

Since then, I have never looked back.

Almost 30 years later, I have lived in eight different countries on five different continents.  I only say this to explain my obsession. At times I have been asked when I am going to settle down.

My answer is, “I have.”
