    You totally rock! I love hearing about, reading about, seeing your travels. Between jobs (leading extraordinary tours on five continents) I travel as you do, and only with a carry-on bag. It’s truly grand to see your life online. What an incredible planet full of amazing people, and it’s such a great thing to be sharing with folks. Well done!
    Continued happy trails,
