He has traveled to many countries. His favorite of them all? How about Thailand. He says in Thailand that’s he got to pet uncaged tigers not restrained in any way, rode elephants and saw fantastic Buddha statues, including the Reclining Buddha, which is solid gold and 100 feet long, and an 8-foot solid emerald Buddha.
“We also visited Angor Wat in Cambodia,” he says — a place not familiar to many Americans but he can tell you all about it.
“We visited Egypt,” he says, “Cruising down the Nile, two weeks before the Arab Spring revolution.”
He says another memorable trip was to Spain, Portugal and Morocco.
“We also visited Italy and I went to Mione, where I walked through a 1848 stone house, and Pellizzano.“
That must have been quite a thrill.
“Don’t forget the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City,” He says, “and the Medici Art Building.”
There are numerous other countries on his list as well.
Other countries include China, to Beijing and Shanghai; New Zealand and Australia, including walking the steepest resident street in the world, 1,200 feet up Baldwin Street in Dunedin; and Greece. Others include the Danube River from Budapest to Nuremberg; France; Germany; Austria; Panama Canal; Costa Rica; Columbia; England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland; and most of the Caribbean nations.
