About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 125 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

Amazing weather greeted my arrival in Lisbon. It has been shorts and t-shirts each day. Great food and beautiful scenery makes revisiting Lisbon special. I have decided to concentrate more on Asia, Africa and South America starting 2023. Kind of my farewell tour to many of my favorite European cities.

PORTUGAL, Douro Valley, Wine

Went on Tour of Douro Valley today which including visiting 2 wineries and river cruise through the valley. Was very beautiful but 1.5 hours driving each way from Porto. Unfortunately I was not a big fan of Port Wine which is their specialty.
