World Wander

Exploring the world and traveling to places near and far is one of the passions that my wife and I have shared since we fell in love a decade ago.

We got engaged in India, honeymooned in Portugal, ate our hearts out in Bologna on a multi-region food tour and traversed the English countryside on an epic roadtrip to Land’s End and the Lost Gardens of Heligan and back again. We’ve also explored The Sunshine State with countless visits to off-the-beaten path landmarks incuding refreshing floats in the Florida Springs and canopied drives through the state’s Historic Scenic Byways. We even survived an emergency hot air balloon crash landing in Orlando a few years ago! It’s no wonder that for our most recent anniversary we flew to Paris for a long weekend of romance, French cuisine and exploration. And the best is yet to come! Just last month, at the Voices For Children “Be A Voice” Gala, we won an African Safari Adventure during the live auction and immediately began planning our trip. We’re looking forward to photo opps galore with the “Big 5” and immersing ourselves in the continent’s culture, food, sights and sounds, making memories that will last a lifetime.
