I love to travel! Trains, cars, planes, boats—even buses. The thrill of adventure gets me every time.

Netherlands: bikes, tall, cheese, read the street signs in Dutch, but not understand a word of English, canals, canal houses, Corrie ten Boom house

Rome: Jail cell of Paul, 3-layers of churches, the art in the Vatican, the magnificence of the Colosseum, that’s where Nero fiddled while Rome burned.

London: Tube, cathedrals, museums, Rosetta Stone, mummies, Gutenberg Bibles, rose gardens, tea at the Orangery
