WANDERLUST BEGINNINGS


I began my travels in high school. My first trip abroad was to the United Kingdom. This was an auspicious occasion for me, leaving a third world country like Barbados which is 166 miles long and 26 miles wide for a first world country many times larger than my homeland.

It was my first time on an airplane.  From that time the desire to see places that I had only seen in magazines and always wanting to know what lay beyond the horizon gave birth to my wanderlust beginnings.

I have visited over 70+ countries and every continent except Antarctica.   Sometimes I travel with a group, with family, with a friend, but I mostly like going solo. From my travels I have created several scrapbooks that recount these trips in detail. I’ve acquired a menagerie of refrigerator magnets that have become an icebreaker and conversational piece for visitors to my home. They are often amazed at the places I have visited and listen intently to stories/experiences of my past travels. Their final question is, “Where are you going to next?” and my usual response is, “Wait and see. The world is my oyster.”
