Great adventures

I have been blessed with so many opportunities to take great adventures.

It all started when I was about 26 years old when I took a CYFA (Church Youth Fellowship Association) via Christ Church Clifton Bristol to Oberstdorf in the Bavarian Alps. It was my first time out of the United Kingdom, and it gave me a thirst for travel.

That trip included excursions through Austria and Switzerland.   

Since then I have been able to savour visits to Holland, Belgium, France, Italy, Germany and Greece.

In 1973 I took a trip to Kenya and Tanzania (with an un-planned and enjoyable 24 hour stopover in Egypt).

Within North America I have been in Canada and Mexico.

I spent some good time in the Honduran Republic (in Central America) back in about 1999.

Last year I was on the South American continent in Ecuador.

And in about 2003/2004 cI was able to spend ten glorious days in The Lebanon – a Middle Eastern country which is geographically part of Asia.

O my golly.  I have been in the continents of Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America.

There are two others: Antarctica and Australasia.

My next great adventure will be a visit to Australia in late October/early November.  There I will visit friends in Melbourne and Sydney.

After that trip I will have visited 6 of the 7 continents.

I have no plans to go to Antarctica.

India, Norway, Brasil, and Costa Rica are still in my bucket list!
