Work With Me

Lets Work Together

I believe that life is a patchwork of experiences that should be shared.

I am a retired Ph.D. chemist with a lifelong passion for travel, photography and quilting. As a lifelong learner I am constantly looking for the thrilling challenge that traveling to new locations brings me. I like to focus my traveling lens on history, art, architecture, nature, and especially those unique adventures that would interest the educated and adventurous age 50+ creative traveler like me.

With my blog I try to provide the equivalent of a high-end on-line magazine experience. Quality writing and engaging photography are my first priority. I do not partner with affiliates and as a result, you will not see posts geared primarily for increasing affiliate traffic. Like Mark Twain, I firmly believe that “travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness”. Our planet is large and very diverse. I am driven to share my travel experiences to showcase that other life styles, beliefs and cultures are as valuable as ours.

I would be happy to work with you on either a travel, photography or quilting project.

What you get in return:

A mature, professional and engaged partner. With 25+ years of experience working in the corporate world, I understand what makes a successful business relationship.

This is where I share my travel stories and my quilt designs to inspire others in their new learning experiences. My site may be young but my readership and following are steadily growing. Start with me on the ground floor and we will grow and learn together.

My experiences. My voice. Your inspiration. Enjoy.

Thanks for visiting.
