Expert’s Bio

My interest in geography and world travel developed in childhood as daughter

of a Scottish-born Mother who grew up in Shanghai, China, and a Southern-born

Father.   Relatives on the maternal side of my family have lived in Egypt and

India - all part of the British Foreign Service.   Thus China, Egypt and India were

on top of my list of places to visit, as well as Macau, Marrakech, Manaus and

Moscow because they sounded so exotic.   I have visited all these destinations

and many more - traveling to all 7 continents.   I lived in Atlanta, GA, Washington, DC, and New York City prior to Ft. Lauderdale, FL.


My Recent Trips

Of the trips I have taken during the last several years, which was the most

interesting?   That’s so hard to answer!


Certainly the Antarctic was an amazing destination.  It is not all ice and penguins

though that was awesome.  Scientists came aboard our ship from the U.S.

Research Station and described their work and living arrangements.  Getting

into the Falkland Islands was an added bonus.


Maybe it was the trip to Sicily.   Sicily exudes classic history:  Syracuse, Erice, Agropoli, Mt. Etna, the cliffside town of Taormina, Valley of the Temples, Palermo,

Paestum which mythology says was founded by Jason and the Argonauts.

Reminders of past civilizations abound.


If you are in this general area don’t miss a chance to see Malta; this island country is packed with history and has been a strategic site in several wars.


The northwest coast of Italy is home to Cinque Terre, a UNESCO World Heritage site.  It is a series of 5 hillside, terraced hamlets that in early days was a rocky

fortress against invaders.  This is a charming, picturesque look into what has existed here dating prior to the 12 century.


Cruising is a comfortable way to see multiple destinations and return to the same

bed in your shipboard stateroom every night.    Whether exploring local ports

from a river cruise or relaxing on an oceangoing  trans Atlantic or Pacific one,

cruising is a major way to enjoy the world.


Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, South America - wherever you choose to travel

will provide hours, days and years of pleasure with many memories to keep

you company.
