Was there ever a time when my curiosity was confined or when I may not have longed to see far away places with strange sounding names?  Possibly, but that may have been at a time when family and work issues provided the constraints.  Now that my family has flown the nest (with families of their own) and I am retired, this is the time for discoveries and adventures.  “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
