"THE BEGINNING" glendon1's Profile


A 60's something, retired highschool geography teacher, married, with 4 adult children and 9 grandchildren, who loves to travel. We live in a village, Glencoe, near London, Ontario, Canada. Since retirement we have travelled to Paris, Rome, London UK, Spain and China. We have taken 2 Caribbean cruise, and a Mediterranean cruise. We have also travelled to Costa Rica, New York City, Las Vegas, Florida, and Cuba. During the early 70,s we lived in Australia for a couple of years. At that time we also visited New Zealand, Fiji and Hawaii, as well as San Franscico and Los Angeles. Our travel wish list includes a retun to Australia, a visit to Hong Kong, a South African Safari, a Greek cruise, an, automobile tour of rural France, a return to Italy, and some touring in the UK.

Some things I have found I like from my travels:

Deep fried zucchini flowers
Frog legs
Aussie beer
Fresh prawns
French &Italian wine
Indian food
Sticky rice
French baguettes
Petit prince chocolate biscuits

      Hi Diane, I'm not a big page writer. Sometimes before or after a trip I get a little ambitious, but no often. doug

    Hi Doug. Thanks for saying hello, it was a great weekend wasn't it? I can't make the next one which is next weekend. I can't walk too much at the moment (torn muscles & ligaments) so I don't think I'd be up to another treasure hunt! I hope you're well. Emma
