Since Oct 2005

50-64 year old male

Mystic, Connecticut

I live in CT, USA and together with my wife have embarked on a mission to go on 10 exotic trips over 10 years. Each trip is to be for for 3 weeks minimum. So far all our trips have been researched and booked by self with no travel agency help (unless for booking a particular service). We have tried to make use of BnB or other small family owned properties and avoided the chain hotels wherever possible. Have been to: (1)Turkey, (2006) (2)Iceland followed by Baltics Cruise,(2007) (3)Mediterranean Cruise(Greece and Italy),(2008) (4)Prague/Krakow/Budapest, (2009) (5) Egypt and Jordan, (2010) (6)India (Rajasthan/Gujarat/Mumbai) (2011) (7)Thailand and Cambodia (2012) (8) South America (booked Feb 2014) -a family wedding in Canada bumped the 2013 trip to following year. (9) New Zealand (planned 2015) Have taken cruises at times with self arranged port excursions (with groups on same cruise)- Mediterranean, Baltics and South America next year.
