I don’t leave home without…
My camera, backpack, passport, kindle and phone, business cards.
I travel because…
I am passionate about the educational value of travel which leads to personal growth, experience and the ability to share this passion about travel and world cultures with others.
My favourite travel moments are…
Being in Jerusalem celebrating with students the signing of the Camp David Peace Accord in 1979; inviting the youth of Greece and the world to Calgary for the 1988 Winter Olympics in an official ceremony in Olympia, Greece; visiting the Soviet Union then Russia after the end of the Cold war and being in Tiananmen Square, China just before the pro-democracy student demonstration in June of 1989 and getting pictures of an empty square.
