Travel

“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

These pages will be photos and reports on my travels . . .  OUTSIDE Costa Rica  since my Blog, Gallery, and Bookstore  are all about COSTA RICA, with a special gallery for CR TRIPS! That leaves the rest of the world for these pages. My passion for travel almost equals my passion for nature photography.   🙂

Photo above is the central plaza of Campeche, Mexico on my 2012 “Ancient and Colonial Cities Tour” of Mexico with Caravan.com which is currently not doing that tour because of American fears of Mexico. What a shame! It was a superb history tour of mostly Mayan ruins. Boy waving was also from that trip at Palenque Mayan ruins. See “Mexico” below on the Menu for my photos and stories.
