Travel: My drug of choice

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”
– Mark Twain

I love to travel, and I've been very fortunate to visit many places. One of my favorite countries to visit is Brazil. Its an amazing country both exotic and familiar for American travelers. The country has the can-do, entrepreneurial spirit many Americans identify with and like the U.S. - Brazil is a giant melting pot of people, races and religions. However, its history is more closely aligned with Portugal and the Latin speaking nations of Europe providing a uniquely exotic personality that thoroughly romances you. The picture above is a breathtaking image of Rio de Janeiro; one of the most beautiful places I've had the advantage to visit.

What are some of your favorite destinations, and where do you dream of traveling some day?

I run in cycles. Scotland is my favorite place on earth, but I was visiting as many places in Italy as I could for a number of years. Now I seem to be gravitating to Spain, and am dying to go back again. I love Japan, but haven't been back in nearly 10 years.

I've long wanted to visit South America, but my travel map is blank there as of yet. Hopefully one day!

I’m a city tripper. I’ve been to almost every European capital but I also very much liked my US visits / road trips (New York, San Francisco, Miami)

But my favourite metropolis is without a doubt London.

Like to go to Rio too though
