Travel

I have had the great pleasure of traveling to 44 countries on 4 continents. I learned very quickly that the best education I could ever give myself is to experience this planet in a very personal way. My eyes were opened, my mind expanded and my beliefs challenged – all to help make me a better man.

INSTANBUL
This city was one of the biggest surprises I have ever had in all of my travels. I had two days to explore with my friend Aydan who lived there at the time and seeing this amazing city of over 17M people through a locals eyes was amazing. The sights, the sounds, the smells were overwhelming but wonderful!

 

BUENOS AIRES
Disfrute la Jornada! Enjoy the Journey has been a saying of mine for a long time. I discovered this amazing city quite by accident and fell immediately in love. The people, the architecture, the food – it’s not one thing, it’s a combination of all of them that make this one of my favorite cities.

 

PARIS
Paris was my first city to experience in Europe. What a way to start, right? I have since been back many times and each time, I love exploring the romance, the architecture, the food and the views. I will never tire of this City of Lights.

 

MALAGA
This port city in Spain is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The internationally acclaimed painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso was born here and the culture found here is unparalleled. It quaint, romantic, accessible and just plain fun! I have sailed in an out a few times and can’t wait to go back.

 

DUBAI
I’ve only been to Dubai one time, but I look forward to returning. This was the end of an 18-day cruise through the Suez Canal and probably my favorite cruise so far. What I learned about the Middle East on this trip changed me in profound ways. It opened my eyes to an amazing culture and people.

 

BANGKOK
I had never had the desire to travel to Asia. Bangkok was a pleasant surprise. First, it’s incredibly affordable, then there’s the food, then there’s the ancient architecture that will blow your mind. It was one of my most memorable trips. Ask me about my SARS experience. πŸ™‚

 

PETRA
Established possibly as early as 312 BC as the capital city of the Nabataeans, it is a symbol of Jordan, as well as Jordan’s most-visited tourist attraction. On December 6, 1985, Petra was designated a World Heritage Site and is truly one of the most spectacular world-wonders I have ever seen. If you are ever in Jordan, it’s a MUST SEE!

 

SALZBURG
Salzburg was a day trip while on an excursion to Munich. It was an easy train ride down and it’s beauty is awe inspiring. Mozart was born here and his spirit fills this amazing city. I didn’t get do the “Sound of Music“ tour, but fully intend to go back one day and do it. This Austrian city has a flavor like none other.

 

CARTAGENA
I’ve been to this amazing Colombian port city more than once and each time I go I am taken back to a world from long ago. With two very distinct personalities (Old City & New City), this wonderfully quaint town offers visitors the opportunity to escape into their imagination.
