Hello. I am Canadian and a traveller over 35 (knorthy, add me to your list please!) The first book I remember reading as a child was Dr. Doolittle and I was hooked. Not so much for the animals mind you; it was in fact the idea of a trip to the "dark continent of Africa." I never played with dolls as a child, played imaginary games with myself being "the explorer" and every Sunday morning my father would wake me up, pack a lunch and off we would go "looking for timber". We never knew where we were going but we never got lost. I guess we can safely blame him for some of my wanderlust. I have traveled across Canada more than once, parts of USA, Chile on more than one occassion, Ireland (more than once), Northern Ireland (more than once) ...notice a theme here? and Peru.
I am leaving in October on a 30 day journey on the North American Rail Pass. After that, I guess I can safely say I have seen all of North America. That's one continent down - few more to go!!

Hey cumberford,

Welcome to TP! This site is full of people with wanderlust :) And we have no intention of curing the ailment as well.. rather we prefer to feed into it, so be warned!

Good to have you around.

Cheers, Peter

Thanks very much Peter for the welcome. It appears to be a good site, one that just jumped up on my screen the other day while I was searching travel related stuff. You know the saying, "It is only a sign if you think it is". I think it was ... and, I have already got good information from the travel helpers.
