Nothing puts things into perspective like travel .. seeing a new way of life, a new way of thinking or just eating delicious and perhaps mysterious new foods. There's fewer experiences we remember better than the things we do, people we meet when we our outside our own environment. I love it when people visit the city I was born in and enjoy experiencing all that is here.
I work in international development with renewable energy, my wife is an immigration consultant. We've both been fortunate to have (between the two of us) lived, worked, studied in North, Central and South America, South and East Asia, Europe, Australia and West Africa. We love people and languages; I've studied seven languages and my wife three.
