Why I Travel

Why I Travel cover

Why I Travel is a collection of travel experiences, observations and conversations. This could be a discussion with fellow diners in Lisbon shortly after the 9/11 attacks, dealing with the crowds at the Chelsea Garden show in London or learning about the Russians building the High Aswan Dam in Egypt.

In addition to our genetic makeup, who we are, what we think and how we feel are the result of our experiences and observation, in life. Sometimes the changes are profound, other changes may not be noticeable at all. This book is about experiences, observations and situations that have presented themselves in my travels. In some of those situations the best plan was go with the flow and see how and where things ended up.

Due to the extraordinary complications and life changing events that 2020 has presented to the author, let alone the rest of the world. The expected publication date of this book in now December 2020 or January 2021.
