That's me on Nosy Diego in Madagascar!

Hi, I'm Brett. One day, Lori, my wife, says she wants to teach her way around the world. She's a primary school teacher. The kids have finished college and are on their own. I'm only working seasonally. Well, hmm, okay, let's go.

Now we're expats and I wander about. So I'm heading out. Out the door. Down the road. Down the trail. Down the river. Here are my stories and things I've discovered along the way. I hope you enjoy them.

Until your travels begin or in between them, come, wander with me ...
