A little about me.

  • I was born very young.
  • I was also born very small.
  • I have only visited 42 countries.
  • I intend to visit many more.
  • I have not ridden nor driven nearly enough miles, reached nearly enough destinations, visited with nearly enough people, experienced nearly enough tastes, sights, smells.
  • I’m addicted to coffee.
  • I like dogs.
  • I’m allergic to cats and lobster.
  • I’m a Formula 1 fan.
  • I’m a beer enthusiast.
  • I’m very curious. In a good way.
  • I’m handy with tools. In a good way.
  • I’ve thrice qualified for the Boston Marathon, but only ran it twice.
  • Sunshine is my favourite colour. I can’t decide which I like more, sunrise or sunset, so I say sunshine.
  • I’m a fan of a Cairn Terror named Skye. (She made me write that.)
  • I have little time for liars, manipulators, cheaters.
  • I worked 28 years for the same organization before in 2008 I took early retirement so I could travel the world. I plan to see as much of it as I am able.
  • The day after I retired I jumped on my overlarge motorcycle and started riding south. When the road ended at the most southern city in the world, I turned around and headed north. On that trip I rode my motorcycle 65,000 km from Canada to Ushuaia, Argentina, and back.
  • In 2012 I bought a $300 motorcycle and rode through most of northern Vietnam. When it broke down I bought another and rode the rest of the way.
  • Wanderlust has bit me quite hard.
  • Less planning has meant more adventure.
