Travelling the world

Without a doubt my number one favorite activity! I love the thrill of new experiences and seeing fantastic places for the very first time. I completely love everything about it! Be that taking in mountain top views of the American Rockys, snorkling from a paradise beach in the middle of the pacific ocean, navigating the sensory explosion of the marketplaces in Asia or Afrika or visiting musty old castles in the heartland of old Europe. Experiences like these are what most of my disposable income is destined for :-)
