Dateline: April 2018
Nancy and Barry both love to explore different cultures and their history, their arts and their natural beauty. This passion has led us to all seven continents and more than seventy-five countries. When we travel to somewhere we tend to stay a while in order to get a good feel for the area and people.
In 2017, we visited four countries in South America, four in Africa, plus went to Portugal for the first time. And we had time for a rest stop in the Cayman Islands and a side trip to Panama.
2016 brought us back to Paris, then for a long while to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Finland with a trip to Russia as well. We went south then back to the old Yugoslavia, visiting Slovenia, Albania, Montenegro, Kosovo and Serbia.
During 2015, we toured UAE, Oman, Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh before first living in Czech Republic with visits to Slovakia, Ukraine, Poland, Germany and France. We then stayed in Zagreb, visiting Croatia and Bosnia & Herzegovina. In 2014, we spent a half year traveling all over India, then visited Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia and Indonesia.
We started this blog during our 2011 – 2012 trip, a 10 week discovery of southeast Asia – the extraordinary people and places of Laos, Vietnam, Myanmar, Cambodia and Thailand. We then visited New Zealand for six months until mid-January 2012, followed by a stay in Australia for nine months. As we moved back to New Zealand in November 2013, we enjoyed a side trip to the Philippines.
In the near future, we plan to return to see other countries in both Africa and South America. Then, who knows? There are so many places to see and so little time.
This is our first attempt at a travel blog. It is a work in progress…as are we. Stay tuned.
