76 year old married male; retired; with a passion for my children and grandchildren, travel and family research. Primary objective was to set foot in 100 countries -- achieved that objective on 5/2/2010 when I set foot in Albania; total now stands at 129 as of 3/1/2017. New objective is to set foot in 150 countries. Also have taken grandchildren on trips when they become 12 years old -- first was in June 2009 to Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara with my 12 year old twin grandsons; 2nd to New York City and Washington, DC with grandson Nate and 3rd was to New York City and Washington, DC with grandsons Ryan and Joey and most recent was to London and Paris with granddaughter Jenna in 2014.
My Favorite Places:
Antarctica & Alaska, for the spectacular scenery; and German Bavaria & Switzerland, for the scenery and emotional attachment as that is where some of my ancestors emigrated from. Daito Islands was the most remote place visited so far.
