Now that I have retired from a retail business in the Bavarian town of Leavenworth, WA, I have been able to travel much more easily. I have enjoyed being quite serious about photography since the early 80s, and for a period of time was a professional portrait and wedding photographer.
In this site, you will find photo galleries that represent some of the special places I have visited lately..... New Zealand (I've been there 10 different times!), Australia (6 times), Tasmania (2 trips). You'll also find plenty of galleries of images taken in the beautiful South West parts of the USA. Recently I traveled to both Colorado, Utah, the European Alps in July 2007 and Wales in May 2009. In 2010 the trip was to the Utah National Parks.
Southeast Asia will be my next destination. I traveled to Myanmar with Exotic Voyages in 2013. That was really an inspiring journey with new culture and landscape which is entirely different from the West. This travel agency knew well how to make it more special by their knowledge and warm-heartedness. I surely will be back in Myanmar again, along with Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia. I hope to present to you photo galleries of these tropical lands in a very short time.
