My name? Ask me! Great story. Appreciate Life! Accept others! Kindness wins! I travel for travels sake. I am happy going to Hawaii or Vegas for the nth time in a year, yet more excited visiting a new destination. I enjoy experiencing life like locals, but prefer sleeping at the Ritz. I like having lunch at a local hangout, yet find solace having tea on the concierge floor. I have visited over 110 countries. My goal is 150. I am one of less than 3K to make it to the North Pole. While I have been fortunate to step foot on Antarctica, I have yet to stand on the South Pole. I keep a list of places I want to go and of things I want to do. I enjoy talking with others about travel. I am happy talking about saving money or flying first class. My favorite mode of travel is private jet. I can usually be found at one of my homes in Hawaii, Guatemala, PS, or Chicago. Travel feeds my adventurous soul. I like combining travel with helping locals. Giving back is a must! Share happiness!
