I like to think of myself as a full-time traveller. I retired in 2006 at age 53 with a dream to see the world. Now eleven years and 89 countries (and counting) into the adventure, I am living that dream. Traveling for 6 or more months per year can be demanding and I go home for a few months each summer to relax and organize my life. It is my vacation and a chance to explore North America. In January 2018, I start 2 years in Europe. Follow the story.
My passions are walking, sea kayaking and diving – they allow me to have intimate experiences exploring almost anywhere. Hopefully this website will give you some ideas of places to go and things to do.
The Ideas page is about my many random thoughts.
Writing Hiking & Climbing the West Kootenay has fulfilled a dream I’ve had for two decades. It will always be a work in progress.
