A little about me...

Some people used to think I was a professional exchange student! I spent exchange year terms in Quito, Ecuador (93-94) and Fukuoka, Japan (97-98) and summer terms in Altea, Spain (97) and Jena, Germany (99). These days I am working in Frankfurt, Germany. By the way, I am a US citizen and my family lives in Wichita, Kansas. I was an "Air Force Brat", so there is no one place that I call home.

NOTE: I have blocked all external e-mails because all that junk mail was just too annoying!

Explore my favorite travel destinations

Ecuador - From jungles, to mountains, to pristine beaches, this is an inviting destination

Galapagos Islands - An adventure not to be missed, with friendly animals galore

Burma - Journey back in time to the land of 1,000 pagodas

Germany - Romantic castles and gummy bears!

Guatemala - Find out about the curse of Maximon and explore Mayan Tikal
