How did I get to be this lucky?
Welcome to my home page!
Here's my travel, and therefore my life, history! I grew up in a house filled with love in Detroit, Michigan. The summer of 1969 was a summer that changed my life. I was 8 years old and traveling Europe with my family. We visited Spain, England, France, and Morocco. It was Morocco that impressed me the most. It was so exotic and mysterious and gave me thirst for travel.
Not too long after that, my father bought a 25' Superior motor home so we could see North America. And see it we did! I am proud and thrilled to say I have been to all 50 states (I know what you're thinking - I FLEW to hawaii!) and every province in Canada. We spent many weeks each summer taking the road less traveled, because my father knew that to experience America, you had to get off the highway. I remember stopping for a night in a meadow and waking in the morning to a cow licking the window screen where my sister lay sleeping! National Parks were always on our itinerary, and some of my most vivid memories are from the parks. They are truely our national treasure.
While in college, I couldn't reconcile the fact that I was taking out loans that I had to pay back, when I had no idea what it was I really wanted to do! I knew that the only way I was going to be happy was by seeing more of the world (I'm always happiest when I'm planning my next trip!) So, I became a travel agent, and spent the next 20 years of my life traveling (and working!)
I was lucky to fall in love with man who is almost as passionate about travel as I am. I think he only went out with me because he knew I had some free tickets to be used to anywhere in the US!
