"My Travels" doofus's Profile

A brief background.

I will get round to building a home page. I have only recently joined the group and am thoroughly enjoying it. I wish I had found out about this ages ago.
just a little bit about me. I am now 58 and still enjoy to travel but not as much as I would like to.
In my younger years I have travelled across Africa overland to Cape Town from London. Many tings happened en route but I will wait till I have constructed tnehome page to share all that.
I have also travelled fairly extensively in Asia, mostly Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia and India. If I had to pick one country that I know most about then I would say the Philippines.
I used to work for the railways so have also travelled a lot by rail throughout Europe.

I am now 63! a lot happened since I first wrote on this page!! Must get around to writing my travels!!

Now in my 66th year. Am in remission from cancer and I still love travelling. Since I was 63 have been to the philippines twice and India twice and a couple of short breaks in Tunisia on a touristy thing.

    I wrote a book several years ago and in 2010 i tried to publish it but without success. I recently put on the forum requesting more info on this and have had a few interesting tips. I am constructing another house now which should be completed in Sept, then off to Sikkim for a month or so, then i will try harder to get it published.

    Happy birthday Doofus, surely Saundesfoot has more to offer than one dodgy restaurant! Looking forward to reading more tips.

    Happy birthday, Doofus! I see you've been to Cape Town, too -- a great city. Any thoughts about the new China-Tibet railway line?
