I've visited 40 countries and try to increase this by at least one per year. My "brass ring" trip would be to Antarctica, my final continent to visit. I best engage with new cultures through their dances and learning to cook their food. I'm a "culture vulture", even on vacation, but sometimes enjoy a "fly-and-flop". I've recently PADI-certified to SCUBA dive and am looking forward to exploring the world also from below the surface.
