Arkansas Visit: 2002-4
2016-02-28 - Burlington, Arkansas general store. I stopped and bought a quilt here for the house; since I was living in Burlington, New Jersey at the time, I thought it was only appropriate.

Armenia (other) Visit: 2015-10
2016-02-28 - Sevanavank monastery overlooking Lake Sevan, Armenia. As there are a lot of steps up the hill to get there, you\'d better be in pretty good physical shape.

Austria Visit: 2000-11
2016-08-17 - Spent a week in Vienna, highlighted by a visit to my grandmother's childhood home. Also, a day trip to Bratislava in Slovakia, and a night trip to Sopron in Hungary.

Belize Visit: 2001-4
2016-06-15 - Had a great time that week: hopping on small puddle-jumper planes, taking the island ferry, riding the bus to Xunantunich Mayan site, and walking across the border/river into Guatemala for a quick breakfast. And thank you to Miss S., a Texas tourist I met on Caye Caulker, for sending me her negatives to make photo prints after my camera died. (Got water in it on the boat to the Barrier Reef). Hopefully, I will revisit the country someday!

Berlin Visit: 1988-9
2016-06-18 - On my day trip to East Berlin in 1988, I visited the Fernsehturm, Alexanderplatz, and the Soviet War Memorial.

Delaware Visit: 2013-7
2016-02-28 - The marshes of Newcastle County, eastern Delaware. Looking across the Delaware River, you see the Salem nuclear power plant in New Jersey.

Dominican Republic Visit: 1997-5
2016-06-15 - I was having a great time in the D.R. all week, then I got robbed on my last day. Never walk alone on a deserted beach there. I DID manage to walk alone around Santo Domingo without any incident. But I've seen the capital and I've explored the countryside, and they say it's gotten more dangerous in recent years. I'll never go back.

Iceland Visit: 1998-4
2016-06-15 - Took a bus on a day trip from Reykjavik to Grindavik, a quiet village (to say the least). Walked around, took a few photos, ate lunch at the only place I saw that was open, a pizzaria. Instead of waiting a long time for the next bus, I hitched a ride with a local guy to the Blue Lagoon, and stuck my feet in the warm thermal waters. From there, another tourist gave me a ride to Hapnarfjordthur, where I got out and walked around for a few more pics (including somebody sailing a small boat in the bay in the cold April afternoon). Then, I went back to my hotel in Reykjavik by bus.

Indiana Visit: 2002-4
2016-02-28 - Driving from New Jersey to Missouri, I had to stop at the home of the Indy 500 race in Indianapolis, Indiana. Apparently, no tourists stop there to visit on a Sunday, because there were no other people in sight.

Ireland, Republic of Visit: 2013-6
2016-02-28 - The harbor at Howth, Ireland. Small shops and restaurants all very near the docks.

Kansas Visit: 2002-4
2016-02-28 - This building was at the far end of the main street in Galena, the oldest mining town in southeast Kansas (according to the welcome sign). I drove from Springfield, Missouri that day, just to say I had been to Kansas, then in less than an hour I was in Oklahoma for the first time too.

Maryland Visit: 2013-7
2016-02-28 - General store in Queen Anne, Maryland. This was on a day-trip, driving from New Jersey to visit some counties that I had not previously visited.

Missouri Visit: 2002-4
2016-02-28 - A beautiful Spring day in downtown St.Louis, Missouri. The famous Gateway Arch in the background was my main destination for this trip. It\'s huge when you get there and stand beneath it!

Morocco Visit: 1993-12
2016-05-05 - This was a day trip, took a ferry from Spain to Tangiers to visit the souk. Our guide, Mohammed, took us to the spice market, the fresh poultry market, the carpet dealer, a few souvenir shops, and then to lunch. I remember it being delicious and not too expensive. I did not end up buying a carpet, because I was only looking for a souvenir that would fit in my suitcase. And I almost got sick on the return trip, because of the rough seas. All-in-all though, a successful excursion to the continent of Africa!

New Jersey Visit: 2014-6
2016-02-28 - Fort Hancock, New Jersey, USA. From the top, you get a view of the beach, and also across the harbor you get a good view of the skyscrapers of New York City.

New York Visit: 2014-6
2016-02-28 - Took the Staten Island ferry to Battery Park, NY City. Then walked to the new World Trade Center. This was a day trip from our home base in Eatontown, New Jersey.

Northern Ireland Visit: 2013-6
2016-02-28 - Walking around Belfast, the sun would soon disappear, but that\'s why every tourist should carry an umbrella, right? This was a day trip by bus from our home base in Dublin.

Norway (mainland) Visit: 2016-4
2016-04-22 - A must for visitors to Oslo, Norway, is the Folk Museum. By bus or ferry, it's a short trip from the center of Oslo. Fortunately, it didn't rain that day.

Oklahoma Visit: 2002-4
2016-02-28 - Downtown Quapaw, Oklahoma. Quaint city hall. Very quiet, hardly anybody around. I believe this is on - or near - historic Route 66.

Ontario Visit: 2003-1
2016-02-28 - Driving back to the U.S. from the airport in Toronto, I stopped at Niagara Falls, taking this photo from the Canadian side. At that time (late morning), it was 0 degrees Fahrenheit... about -17.5 Celcius.

Pennsylvania Visit: 2001-6
2016-02-28 - A day trip from our house in New Jersey to Lake Nockamixon in Pennsylvania, just because I saw it on the map and decided to take a drive on a sunny afternoon. I guess if you\'re a boater/camper/fisherman this place might be a bit more exciting.

Quebec Visit: 2000-7
2016-02-28 - I took a day trip from Montreal to Mont Tremblant ski area, which was predictably abandoned in the Summer. But still I saw quite a lot nice houses, and ate a great lunch of poutines!

Republic of Georgia (other) Visit: 2015-10
2016-02-28 - Gorelovka, Republic of Georgia. Trying to take a few photos and get back to Armenia before dark (and before getting a flat tire due to the horrible road!)

San Andres and Providencia Visit: 2003-1
2010-01-22 - This was right across from the main beach. Lots of little shops in which to buy souvenirs. And places for cheap meals, if you wanted to eat with the locals. Someday I want to go back.

Slovakia Visit: 2000-11
2016-06-15 - Traveled by train from Vienna to this nice town for a few hours. Nothing really on our agenda, except getting a passport stamp, taking photos, and eating lunch, which we did. A short fun trip, well worth the train fare.

South Carolina Visit: 1995-2
2016-08-16 - My favorite places in South Carolina have been Myrtle Beach and Charleston. I've been to - or passed through - SC on seven occasions; twice by train and five times by car. Haven't been in an airport yet.

Virginia Visit: 1992-7
2016-08-16 - For a long weekend trip, I drove from New Jersey to Virginia to visit Virginia Beach and Williamsburg, via the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. I enjoyed Colonial Williamsburg, I hope to revisit again some day.
