We have created this website to introduce our family and friends to what we have titled Our World Of Discovery. In 2001 we retired and our adventures started. Never did we dream in 1960 when we began our life together that we would visit 6 continents and 65 countries. From the Amazon, the Rhine and the Danube, the Volga, the Nile and the Oxus to the Ganges, the Mekong and the Yangtze we have been exposed to the sweep of history. The pyramids, temples, fortresses and palaces have combined with jungles, mountains, deserts, fjords and steppes to provide a lifetime of memories. Most rewarding have been the multitude of people so willing to allow us into their homes and villages. Whether a young entrepreneur in China, temple guardians in India, camel drivers in Egypt, village farmers in Russia, school children in Africa, market bazaar merchants in Central Asia or members of a jungle tribe in Brazil, they have all been friendly and welcoming to us. We want to share these experiences with you.
