It was a fluke!!! I had only been on school tours during my teens BUT when I turned 20!!!! I couldn't wait to explore the world. I had friends in Asia and what was supposed to be a few weeks trip to Japan, ended up being a 3-4 year rollercoaster ride taking me to country after country! The more I travelled, the more I desired. The thrist was never quenched. Although now, when I have considerably slowed down, whenever I get a chance, I am in the air. I hate sailing but I have no problem with flying at all. Like I say , I BELONG IN THE AIR!!!!
