Simply put, I love to travel.
I left home at 19, joining the US Air Force, mostly for the travel opportunities. My first few years, I was stationed in upstate NY, met my wife, and did my first international travelling (Canada!).
From there, moved to San Antonio, TX, where we just marked time until the next assignment, the United Kingdom.
If I was interested in travelling before going to the UK, living there made me absolutely rabid about it. So much to see, so much to experience, all crammed into a very driveable, tourable country. For the three years we lived in England, I would guess we were away from home on weekends and holidays probably 90% of the time, seeing as much of the UK and Europe as we could. That period still remains the best, most satisfying, time of my life.
After returning the the US, we stayed a short time in Delaware (a surprisingly good home base for a lot of interesting travel opportunities), where I left the Air Force, joined the private sector, and moved to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.
At that point, my wife began working in travel, so we kept up our routine of taking long weekends and holidays, going to see family, going to Vegas, Florida, Massachusetts, back to the UK, and anywhere else we could find "space-A" room.
A new job opportunity and family matters brought us back to my home state. It also brought a fly-drive trip to Ireland, a short break to London, and a river cruise in Europe, along with a couple of domestic road trips.
That about sums it up so far. My wife and I have been married over 20 years, no kids, one dog. She works as a travel agent, I work in IT. We both love to visit Europe more than any other destination, though we do occasionally break that routine. It's not easy with the need to save for retirement, pay our bills, and travel, but we do manage a nice trip every couple of years. In between, we plan the next trip!
