Your Bio

This travel website is for my friends and fellow-travelers who enjoy the romance and adventure of traveling to far-off places. Although I had traveled some in the 1980s and early 1990s (Europe twice), I begin traveling in earnest in the year 2000 which also ushered in the age of digital photos. I try to visit some new foreign land each year and often I make two or even three trips in one year. I have always been one who wonders what's over that next horizon so, rather I'm on a tour, or traveling independently, I am always ready to head out on that next adventure. Although I have my travel priorities, I can truthfully say there is no place on earth that I am not interested in, so my list is long and my cameras are ready. Contact me at: arizonawill@cox.net
