About Me: I love travel and I imagine if you are on this site you do as well! In my life I have been fortunate to explore 32 countries and 100+ cities. Each country, each city has it is own flavor and unique characteristics. So far I have not found a city I do not like - although some more than others ;) I have found that I like places that have heart and soul, places where the people are friendly and live life to the fullest, these places are not usually the wealthiest of places or the cleanest or trendiest but have so much to offer and are rich in history and culture. A few of my favorites are Lisbon, Portugal, Dubrovnik, Croatia, Ljubljana, Slovenia, Carthage, Tunisia, Baden-Baden, Germany, San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua and Buenos Aires, Argentina.
