Travel has always been a big part of my life as far back as I can remember. I began spending summers in Italy at the age of six. The airports, train stations, basically everything involving travel always fascinated me. In my teen years I began discovering countries other than Italy. I was able to travel to Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Turkey, France, Spain, Portugal, Greece,and England. My biggest adventures have been to Australia and Alaska. I've enjoyed traveling by air, cruise ships and trains. I've also been to Mexico and the Caribbean several times. I've also been fortunate enough to see much of the United States and Canada. During my over 30 years of teaching, I led countless groups of students on tours of Europe. Travel definitely runs in my blood!
