Aruba Visit: 2003-11
2007-12-31 - Nice constant breeze so never too hot. Nice beaches but otherwise not one of the prettier islands in the Caribbean. Scuba diving fair- mostly wrecks). A windsurfing paradise.


Belgium Visit: 2006-6
2007-12-31 - Bruge is a great quaint small city and Brussels is a very modern and nice large city (but expensive).


Belize Visit: 2007-12
2007-12-31 - Placencia peninsula has best beaches in the country. Also have easy access to inland areas including Mayan ruins and jungle lodges from the peninsula.


Easter Island Visit: 2006-11
2007-12-31 - Moai are amazing. Water is cold despite being in South Pacific. Not great diving from fish perspective but excellent rock formations and incredible visibility. Horse back riding great fun, and a common way for the locals to travel around the island.




Estonia Visit: 2003-7
2007-12-31 - Tallinn is an interesting city but can easily be seen in 1 day. The people are friendly and upbeat, unlike Russians who always seem depressed. Tallinn is actually only a short ferry ride from Helsinki, Finland and the culture and language in Estonia more Scandanavian than Russian.


Galapagos Islands Visit: 2004-6
2007-12-31 - Fabulous animal life above ground and under water. Despite being on the equator, water is cold due to currents coming up from antarctic waters. We chartered a whole boat for 8 people and had a grand adventure.


Morocco Visit: 2007-3
2007-12-31 - Interesting and diverse. Fez is the most interesting city. Do not miss sleeping in a tent in the Sahara desert which is a highlight.


Portugal Visit: 2006-6
2007-12-31 - Lisbon and surroundings (Sintra, Estoril, Cascais, etc.) one of the great find in Europe. Among the least expensive places in Western Europe yet among the most interesting and with nice weather all year.


Sabah Visit: 2007-6
2007-12-31 - Kota Kinabalu nice city but most interesting spots near Sandakan (Sepilok orangutan rehabilitation center and Kinabatangan River wildlife areas) Also, Sipidan Island one of the world's great dive areas. Try staying at Sipidan Water Village with luxury chalets over the Celebes Sea.


Sarawak Visit: 2007-6
2007-12-31 - Kuching a nice city but more interesting are trips to jungles, caves, rivers, and indigenous peoples in longhouses.


Western Cape Visit: 2002-6
2007-12-31 - Capetown is one of the great cities of the world. Think London with much better weather and on the coast. Think San Francisco for ambience and similarities (Robben Island vs Alcatraz, both with wine country about 50 miles away, both on oceans, and both with similar weather).


Zimbabwe Visit: 2002-6
2007-12-31 - People friendly and appreciative of tourists (in Victoria Falls). It is sad the the country has gotten in such a mess from its dictator's oppressive policies.
