I'm a wanderer and explorer. I like to do a different route every time. I enjoy both the finest hotels and camping under the stars. I am a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and once led an expedition to Nigeria to look for termites. My favorite trips are when you keep moving from place to place traveling with the locals. I may have caught whooping cough in China so be careful as immunizations you had as an infant can wear off when you are a teenager. How not to get sick when traveling - make sure food is cooked, avoid raw foods, purify your own water, and say the alphabet twice when you wash your hands. Lentils and rice are usually a safe diet in places like India and Nepal. Be very careful in big hotels of the ice in drinking water.
