  • About world_wide_mike:

    I am a History teacher now, but a traveler for more than 4 decades. My first trip was backpacking through Europe after graduating high school in 1981. My travels really picked up when I worked for an airline for 18 years until I retired in 2010. My second career as a teacher gives me a couple months off every summer to travel, though I took more individual trips when I worked for the airline. I've begun introducing my middle school students into overseas travel since 2015, when I take a group to a European country and connect it to what I teach as a 7th grade History teacher. I plan to keep traveling all my life, so watch my blog for updates!

  • Hobbies:

    Traveling...any surprise? I also love history -- seeing places I have read about all of my life are a thrill to me. I also enjoy beautiful scenery, so will usually climb hills, towers -- whatever -- to get the best view.

  • Favourite places:

    Italy -- so much History and scenery combined together. I've been there six times as of this writing and still have lots of places there I want to see! I also love Southeast Asia -- seeing the ancient and medieval temples like the world-famous Angkor Wat (or the lesser known Bagan, in Myanmar) are evocative, to say the least.
