"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime."
― Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It

My trips are listed below in chronological order with most recent on top. The Photo Gallery link is to my online photo gallery for that particular trip.

The Book link is to a photo book about the trip in my Blurb Bookstore. You can thumb through the book electronically and if you wish purchase it. Earlier trip books where made with MyPublisher.com and not available with a link, though I can individually invite you to see one of them.

The Stories are limited to the few I have taken time to write about including some journal pages and more recently an Adventures Blog, but still few writings. Much of my Nature Notes Blog also has to do with travel.
