75 year old married male; retired; with a passion for my wife, 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 122`as of 1/17/2016. New objective is to set foot in 450 "places". 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.
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.
