World Traveler

Larry is a citizen of the world and has travelled to all 50 states and over 80 countries. His one word definition of travel is education. Some places in the world must be seen in person in order to appreciate and feel their beauty such as the Grand Canyon, a Sequoia Tree or the Golden Gate Bridge. In Africa, he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, visited the Egyptian Giza and Saqqara pyramids, the tombs at the Valley of Kings and sailed the Nile River.

In 2012 he spent a month in Africa visiting the earth shaking Victoria Falls, the reflections of Okavango Swamp, a Bushman Village, colorful Namibian Dunes, Fish River Canyon (the world's second biggest canyon) and saw thousands of animals in Chobe and Etosha Park including elephants, hippos, lions, leopards, cheetahs and his favorite bird, the colorful Lilac Breasted Roller. During the overland camping trip, he hiked, canoed, learned to pole a mokoro and sand boarded down sand dunes at 45 mph. He was the chief dish washer, diary writer and photographer for the trip.

Since 1998 he has written 40 travel diaries covering his adventures in many countries including Bali, Brazil,the Hawaiian Islands, the Galapagos Islands, Costa Rica, New Zealand, Angkor Wat, Egypt, Mt. Kilimanjaro, Namibia, Turkey, India, Iceland, Italy, Vienna, Barcelona and San Francisco.
