Ray and Jeanne in the Philippines
We have spent between three and five months exploring the world every year since the winter of 1999-2000. The winter of 2007-8 brought new dimensions to our travelling. We now visit our daughter and her family in Paris at the beginning and end of our trip and we have added several side trips in France. During 2007 and 2008 we added a month of volunteer activities while travelling in the Philippines and Thailand.
We don't seem to want to stop travelling. There are so many interesting countries to visit. We started in Paris and the French Alps at the end of 2012, then spent a month each in Sri Lanka and Southern India. Jeanne returned to Europe in May 2013 to spend time with our Parisian grandsons and take in a biking holiday in the Netherlands, with a short side visit to Bruges on the way. October 2013 found us in Rome and Sicily, including a week in a Sicilian Villa with friends.
