Who I am and Why I am here

Blogging U.This blogging thing is new to me.  I never saw myself as a writer.  I have always seen myself as an observer of people;  I guess you could say that I am curious.  Along with my curiosity, is my passion for travel and experiencing the world.

Everyone has a story to tell and I love to hear them.  The world is small and really not as complicated as it seems to be.  Most people around the world are the same; they want to be healthy, happy and prosperous.  The cultural road to attain these goals may be different;  that road is what interests me.

Each time I experience or revisit a city or country, I learn so many things about people, food, art, music, customs, etc.  My vision for this blog is to share these experiences and stories here.  My ultimate goal is to have this blog as a place to exchange information and stories from around the world.

The more we (world citizens) know about each other, the better we can understand each other.  Maybe, just maybe, that understanding can someday lead to a more peaceful world.
