Avid traveler for more than 40 years, two and three week vacations from work were carefully scheduled to fully maximize travel. However, since retirement in 2002, longer more extensive trips are on the agenda. A westward and an eastward world circumnavigation, a cruise around South America, and extended stays in the Philippines and South East Asia have become possible. Genealogy played a part in visits to ancestral towns in England and Slovakia; the Titanic led to Halifax, Liverpool, Belfast, Cobh, and Southamption; and an interest in classic ships and liners resulted in numerous cruises aboard the Marco Polo and MV Discovery. With the sad demise of those two ships, Holland America and Cunard have become the preferred cruise lines. Facebook page under Dave Link has countless photos.
