For this Idaho farm boy, my first international travel was in 1964 as a seventeen year old high school student who was selected to be an AFS exchange student to Brazil. I was blessed to live with the Pasqualin family of São Paulo for the summer. Their English was so good I didn’t learn much Portuguese, but I gained a love for Brazilians and Brazil. That prompted me to take a Portuguese class during my freshman year at Harvard.
Our love for Africa began in 2014 and has grown from then. During those three years we lived in Johannesburg, South Africa, and worked from Afghanistan to Cape Town, from Tanzania to Gabon, and from Mauritius to Namibia. In other words, most of southern, central, and eastern Africa, plus islands of the Indian Ocean. We fell in love with the people, the beautiful land, and the amazing wildlife.
We love to travel. We have enjoyed getting to know many parts of the world. Our most memorable was our seven and a half month trip around the world in 1972-73. We took the year off from school between college and law school, packed up our oldest daughter who was almost two years old when we started, and set off. Our itinerary included Puerto Rico, British Virgin Islands (primarily Tortola), Brazil, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Greece, Israel, India, Nepal, Hong Kong, China, Japan, and Hawaii. Cruises are one of our favorite things. We have been blessed to cruise a number of times in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, the Baltic, Alaska, Hawaii, and on the Amazon.
