Welcome to my new "TravelBlogue"! I have been traveling for more than four decades (since I was about eight months old, when my family moved from Erie, Pa., to Athens, Greece), and have always enjoyed relating my experiences. One of the main ways I have done that is through my work as a freelance writer and author of several, activities that frequently get me out on the road. And for the past couple of years I have also worked as special interest and destination lecturer aboard cruise ships, which both gives me a venue for sharing my experiences and allows me to enjoy new ones.

There are any number of experiences that I cannot easily incorporate into whatever project I happen to be working on at any given time, and having a place to share such things is a big part of why I have started this site. This blog will thus serve as a venue for things I come across in my travels that are good, bad, or otherwise interesting -- and, hopefully, of use to anyone who reads about them! Your feedback is also welcome and will help make this site more akin to a conversation than a monologue.
