Hi there and thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.  Why did I start this? Well, after more than 30 years of service in the Foreign Service I have visited over 60 countries. My last post was to Frankfurt, Germany. There I met the love of my life, Kathrin, and am living happily ever after.  After 3 years at the consulate I have been living the retired life in Frankfurt with her since 2016. What do I do to keep myself busy? Well, being the facility manager of our house is a full time job. Yard/house maintenance, IT support, home automation development/support. I never worked so much in my life!

  Secondly, Kathrin works in the travel industry, so my traveling days are not over. After a couple of years of traveling together she suggested I start a travel blog. 

So here I am, putting down my thoughts, impressions, and opinions of places we have travelled to together, showcasing my photography, and occasionally talking about photoghraphy. I hope you enjoy it.

My opinions on this blog are strictly my own and I get nothing out of it except the pleasure of helping a business with a kind word (in those cases where they deserve it).
