I am a major advocate for visiting other places, immersing myself in the local culture and (if and when possible) trying to blend in and not be a typical tourist. This page will contain slideshows of where I've been, beginning from the most recent. I do not have any of my travel pics from my two month stay in Romania on this computer, so this will just be the last few years. If I had any advice for anyone (including my younger self) it would be this: travel more, travel often, and imbue experience by seeing this world - the good, the bad, and the ugly.
We just spent an incredible week in Portugal. We stayed in Lisbon and had day trips to Evora, Sintra, Praia do Magoita, Caiscais, Estoril, and Cabo da Roca. The number of photos are just too numerous to put here, so a separate page can be accessed here.
