WANDERLUST: a strong desire to wander and explore the world.
Travel philosophy: I like to settle into a city, walk and live local (as much as possible). Exploring the countryside and avoiding tourist traps... but never skipping a must see like the Mona Lisa.
In Oct 2017 we crossed off one of my bucket list adventures. Hiking 76 miles in the Khumbu region (Himalayas) in Nepal. We hiked to Everest Base Camp and crossed Mon La Pass.
One of our most talked about memories is when we found ourselves dining in Taksim Square when a riot started. [Istanbul, 2013]
We spent the night in Crater Camp (elev: 18,800) after reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro on July 4th.
I have walked on the Great Wall of China, gone swimming off the Amalfi Coast, abseiled in the Blue Mountains (Australia), skied at Matterhorn, and so much more. What a gift, exploring the world.
