Most of us won't care if you made up the rest.

I might have a few of these stories but afraid my parents might be reading...

I need to put some of the pick up lines... for example being in a bar in Georgia (the country) and having a totally hot Georgian guy, 13 years my junior, holding my hand and drawing it closer to a certain body part saying "Georgia Man Big"

Thanks! If there's any articles or destinations folks are interested in, let me know.

In May I'll be camping in Komodo National Park so I'll be writing about the dragons!

Whoa! You are God send.

I was starting to look at a 10 day Tanzania safari and did not know where to start. I saw $5000 inclusive package from Costco but wasn't sure if it was a good deal. I want to go with a reliable vendor as I am unsure about Tanzania.

I will check out your site.

I'll send you some of our diving pics (wife & myself) at a private Island in the Seychelles.

Also going to show her the Botafumeiro swinging at the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela. Always a blast for newbies.
