My love of travel

I am a lover of travel.  Up until now I have done a great deal of travelling but still have a yearning to do more.  All my blogs will be about the various places I have visited during my lifetime.  Today's blog will be an overview of all my travels and then from here on in each additional blog will be more detailed either by country or by city or town.  You may comment however you wish or you may ask me questions or advice which I would be more than happy to answer.  You can also make suggestions or talk about your experiences.

As this is my first blog here is an overview of where I have travelled.  I have travelled to twelve countries including the United States and Canada where I am currently residing and where I have always lived.  The other ten countries are Israel, England, Scotland, France, Belgium, Holland, St Lucia, Italy, Mexico, and Costa Rica.  I have always enjoyed my travels and have learned and grown from each trip I have undertaken.

There have sometimes been unpleasant situations which occurred from catching colds to spraining my ankle or to missing a shuttle but I have always handled them as best I could once I calmed myself down.  Travel can be exhausting at times but I always rest in a park and then continue on or I will go back to my lodgings for a break and then resume that same evening or the next day.  The other difficulty I have with travelling is that flying is not my favourite thing.  If the flight is easy and steady then I am okay but whenever there is turbulence I feel nauseous and uncomfortable.  Though I am not crazy about flying I will do it just to get to my destination.  It is so worth it in the end.
I have travelled in various ways.  I went on family trips as a child and adolescent and then I went on a tour to Israel with a friend of mine and then I travelled alone either on tours or solo or a combination of both.  Last year I travelled with my whole family on a cruise to Alaska to celebrate my father's 80th birthday.

There are still many places that I wish to go.  I would love to visit Australia and New Zealand, more of Europe, and also South America and parts of Africa.  I would also love to go to the South Pacific and to see more of the United States and Canada.

So let's hear from you.  Hope you have enjoyed reading my blog and I look forward to telling you more.
