I was born in Toronto in 1947 and lived there until 1971 when my wife and I decided to travel. Since 1973 we have lived in Scotland and have done as much travelling as possible... just beginners compared to some of the members on Virtual Tourist. The main picture is of Valletta, Malta, taken from our plane by Mrs Flying.Scotsman. We live in Balloch at the southern end of Loch Lomond part of the time, and in Lower Largo, Fife to be near the sea! We go back to Toronto for 2 to 3 weeks roughly every year now, have a son and 2 granddaughters in China, a son in Toronto, and a daughter and 2 grandsons in Glasgow. We've been to China four times, and Australia once. We try to travel to Europe as much as possible. In the last 10 years we have been to Paris five times, northern France, Nice, Budapest, Krakow, Marrakech, Ljubljana, Venice, Tallinn, Vilnius, Riga, Barcelona, Dubrovnik, Mont Blanc, Lisbon and Malta.
