A Pretty Bride on her Wedding Day

VT is about T R A V E L!

As long as I travel, my VT pages will always be a Work in Progress. It takes time to get the photos and text up, but it's fun.

While I've done numerous repeat visits to Asia and Europe, I haven't traveled nearly as much as I would like to Africa, or the Caribbean. Pretty much have traveled throughout the US minus a handful of states.

Lived in New Jersey, Northern Virginia, Honolulu, Orlando and now I'm in Western North Carolina. I like variety you can say!

Guess I could go on...

But I won't! Pages I like looking at include: my HONOLULU Pages, my BALI pages, my KUTA pages, and my ORLANDO pages. I love my favorite photos (in my personal photo album right below!) Or see my external website for more of my photography.


Tips on Cheapest Last Minute Hotel Websites!


Did you say you wanted CHEAP ASS HOTELS?!?! Here ya go!

Wait! You don't even want to PAY FOR HOUSING?! You're breaking my balls here, chum. But I got sumthin fer your Tight Arse:

Visiting Family & Friends March 06

Quick trips have been where it's been at ever since I've been back to the Mainland. Not sure why, but I'm cool with it. My brother lives in Fayetteville NC, so this was one such recent trip...

Charlotte, NC another Jan 06 Trip

Why I Like VT.... Not only do I get to meet like-minded individuals, but I get to learn the most recent/current information on the places I plan to visit. I no longer buy travel guides. Why? I have contacts pretty much anywhere I want to go. Makes guides outdated the day they are published. VT is fluid and priceless. VT is as strong, and as weak, as its members.

Chicago for Christmas 2005

Why I like Traveling.... It's in my soul. It's my passion, my life, my goal, my direction, I know nothing else. Even if it's to someplace one hour away. I will travel. That is all I really know about this life. I travel to see, to learn, and to meet new people and new ways of doing things.

Key West for our Charity Bike Ride

Why I work in Travel... because if I can't afford to travel all the time, well, hell, I might as well learn how to travel better, smarter, quicker... so I have always worked in the travel and tourism industry. For going on 18 years... Yikes. Since I was... uh... 8. Sure... 8 Years old! ; ) I've worked in hotels, F&B, travel agencies, airlines, teaching travel at unis and as a group travel sales manager. I was a humble holiday rep for a short period of time and I even have a private pilots license. (Not current, but once a pilot, you always have a tendency to 'look up!')

Cattle coming and goings!

We have lots! :)
