I love travel and experiencing new places and people. I write about places and things I like. I call myself the Traveling Fool because I love to travel and have done more than a few foolish things in my life. I lived four years in Germany while in the military and enjoyed traveling Europe while I was there. I was also in Asia and since retiring have worked in other locales. I have been lucky enough to travel to over 30 countries and while that is miniscule compared to many travel bloggers it’s not bad since I work full time. I don’t work in the travel industry and what I write comes from experience, research and having a strange curiosity about people, places and cultures. Visit me at
