The above are just a few pictures of my friends that I have taken as I have traveled a small corner of the world we live in.


I’m not a travel agent and do not have my own business, but I like to assist others in making travel plans or helping them decide where in the world to go.  I plan our trips, by scouring brochures or searching on the Internet.   


My original goal was to visit 100 countries.  On January 9, 2009 I made this goal when I stepped on the Antarctic Peninsula.  I guess I now need to up my goal to 150 200.  I track my countries based on the Traveler’s Century Club listing.  The Traveler’s Century Club is pretty liberal in what counts (for example Alaska and Hawaii count as they are more than 50 miles from the continental USA), which is OK, if you are trying to reach 100. Here is my Country List.


Please browse my site and tell me what you think.  If you would like help finding a unique vacation I would love to help you.


p.s. I also have several other goals besides my 100 150 countries
