In 1970, just graduated from college, a friend and I bought $90 Eurail passes and spent six weeks traveling Europe. We were among those early baby boomers who grabbed backpacks and went off to see the world. It was an exciting, fascinating experience. I went back two years later, eventually joining my girlfriend, where we roamed Europe for six months. Thirty years would elapse before I would leave the United States again to see more of the world. But now, as with other baby boomers, I am traveling and exploring again, this time bringing with me a lifetime of experience and sensibilities and sensitivities that I lacked in the 70s. The greater portions of these qualities reside with my wife and travel companion, who was also that girlfriend over 40 years ago in Europe. In 2014, the two of us spent nine months in Asia, six months living and working in China, including travel to Southeast Asia and Japan, and three months on an overland journey across Central Asia. We’re on the road again. And, to borrow from Susan Sontag, we haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on our list.
