West, Texas

After decades of work, I'm retired and ready to get serious about travel. Am reading IGOUGO for inspiration with thanks to all the good writers and photographers on the site.

About Me: I've traveled since the age of 5 weeks. My suitcases get restless if I don't have a trip in plan and a ticket at hand. I get sad if I have no travel to look forward to.
