• I have visited 42 countries.
  • I intend to visit many more.
  • I like good coffee.
  • I’m a Formula 1 fan.
  • Sunsets are my favourite colour.
  • I worked 28 years for the same organization before in 2008 I took early retirement so I could travel slowly.
  • I’m a fan of a Cairn Terror named Skye. (She made me write that.)
  • I have little time for liars, manipulators, and cheaters.
  • The day after I retired I jumped on my overlarge motorcycle and started riding south. When the road ended, I turned around and headed north. I rode my motorcycle 65,000 km from Fredericton, N.B. 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.
  • I have not ridden or driven nearly enough miles, reached nearly enough destinations, visited with nearly enough different people, experienced nearly enough tastes and smells.
  • Less planning has meant more adventure.
  • There are new adventures over the horizon.
