Not sure I have ever done this but no time like the present. I have done some traveling, seen a few things and met a few people. I am on my 4th passport and a million+ miles.
Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, China, India
Germany, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Belgium (French and native), Netherlands, Sweden, UK
Mexico, Belize, Brazil, Bahamas, Canada
I have seen the Taj Mahal and the Red Fort of Agra. I have walked the Forbidden City and smiled at Mt Fuji. I have walked the Tokyo fish market and driven through the Alps in two different crossings without elephants. I have found my way to countless city squares and knelt kindly on their blessings. I have ridden through a cattle drive led by a person that knows their names and I have had tea served by an ancient artisan. I have viewed the symbol of Hitler in its natural setting with no fear attached. I have strolled streets and towns at all hours of the cycle and breathed the air they make. I have eaten at bakeries of every kind and savored their sweets. I have plunged the Blue hole and swam with sharks a plenty. I have been inspected thoroughly by an innocent fish protecting their coral. I have left a perfectly good airplane and landed on my feet and I thrilled at the ground's approach to my reach. I have seen poverty so normal that I could not comprehend, and I have wept upon leaving as I could not see and end. I have found comfort in the distant steeples like an old friend waving in the far and driven at excess to get to the next. I have had coffee from all sorts of people and shared its elixir at all times of day. I've had foods I can know and many more that I don't served with laughter and cheer and many with beer while the water "mit gasse" is my fondest of all. And I have enjoyed it all.
...to be continued.
