  • All-time best travel moment
    We were in Thailand and had been on the road for nearly 2 months. We hadn't seen our kids (all grown up but we still missed them alot) or family in all that time. We came upon a group of about 10 local kids at a vista point overlooking the small town. They took a picture with us and those kids were all over us, they wanted to be picked up, they put their little hats on our heads and were so friendly. It was a tender moment that I'll always remember. They were so cute.
  • Interests and hobbies
    Nothing interests me more than travel. I don't have a particular hobby but this year I started my first vegetable garden ever. I plan on expanding it next year.
