Fellow Global Traveler Travel Consultant

While wandering the globe over the last 30 years, I have enjoyed some of the finest hotels in the world and also slept over pigs in Nepal. I have spent a month trekking the Annapurna Circuit, transited Siberia aboard the Trans-Siberian Railway, walked along The Great Wall of China, climbed Mt Fuji, and rode horseback over the Mongolian Steppe.  I’ve whiled away many an afternoon in some of the best beer gardens throughout Europe. I've also seen Otzi -The Iceman in Bolzano and grizzly bears in Alaska.  I have cruised both the Mediterranean and Caribbean seas, and purchased shrimp off of boats in Norway and Florida. My best attempts to converse in Spanish while in Mexico, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Colombia have met with mixed results, but I’m still trying!  So, if I haven't been there or done that, you can bet I'm at least considering it. I will plan YOUR next adventure too, no matter how near or far you plan on going.
