I am now semi-retired after more than 30 years in the software industry. As a kid my parents instilled in my sister and me a love of travel. We spent a couple of summers in Puerto Rico and one very memorable Christmas Holiday in the U.S. Virgin Islands. One summer we travelled from coast to coast through the U.S. and parts of Canada. And yet another very memorable road trip was spent travelling through France, Germany and Austria. Several years later we returned to France for a two week stay.
As a college student I had the opportunity to visit Liberia, Nigeria, Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso (formerly Upper Volta), Ghana, Togo, Benin, and the Ivory Coast thanks to the fact that my parents were stationed in several different posts in Africa during that time. After college I joined the Peace Corps and served in what was then known as Zaire.
When I started working back in the States after my two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer most of my travel was limited to the East Coast. But later on I was able to visit France and see the city of lights once again. Because of my passion for tennis I ended up on several trips with friends and fellow tennis players where we went to Martinique, Nassau, San Salvador (Bahamas) and our longest excursion to Morocco. Since getting married in 1999 I have travelled to Mexico, Guatamala, Belize, Hawaii, Thailand and China. We have also taken many a vacation to Las Vegas my wife’s favorite destination where we generally have spent a good part of the trip sightseeing through the beautiful terrain and grandeur of the Southwest. We have been to the National Parks of Bryce, Zion, and of course the Grand Canyon ,and via Salt Lake City to the Grand Tetons, and Yellowstone .
