    ex-member of Travbuddy 'itravel1'

    I am a single 40ish guy that is starting a new time in his life. Solo travel has been quite rewarding and that is something I am not in a hurry to change. I also enjoy taking a lazy afternoon to read your blogs and reviews as well as browse your photos. This type of virtual travel has been quite fun.

  • Hobbies:

    Self-improvement, patios, architecture, TED Talks, trying a second language, chess, SCUBA,
    puzzle books, crime thriller, The Master and Margarita, Crime and Punishment, Tolkien, National Geographic, Fine Homebuilding, James Patterson
    rock, jazz, blues, country, classical, almost everything

  • Favourite places:

    Watching the Nutcracker at the Bolshoi on New Years Eve

    Playing golf in Tristan da Cunha

    1 week in South Georgia

  • Antartica - The Beginning
  • Paris sept '10 - My first city in my first trip across the pond. My first hostel, solo trip, and most unorganized trip, hence... one hell of a good time. Segway tour was neat, Latin Quarter a must go, of course all the standards, and the Latin Quarter!
  • Switzerland Sept'10 - A short stop to get my feet wet, Interlaken Switzerland. Definitely a spot and country worth a second visit and a little more time. Quite quiet in late september, end of summer rush and too early for the 'winter bunnies'. A great time for site seeing and some adventure sports. Although they are expensive it is the Alps in Switzerland!
  • Munchen Germany 2010 - Oktoberfest, short buzz around Munchen
  • Buda and Pest - An unscheduled stop, but so happy I made it too the 'two cities'.
  • Praha - Czech Beer!
  • Calgary July 2009 - A couple of days at the Calgary Stampede and a day trip to Banff and Lake Louise.
