Great Britain

Great Britain
and Finland


I've traveled a bit in my life, though not as extensively as relatives of mine who've lived overseas for many years.  Still, I have been to 49 of the 50 states (all of the Lower 48 plus Alaska), Canada, Mexico, Great Britain, France, Finland, Germany (transiting only) and the Netherlands (transiting only), Israel and Uganda.

Along the way, I've catalogued my travels on film, on video and, in many instances, travelogues.   Take a look at the links on the left side of the page to see some examples. The newest ones are at the top of the list.

Visit Britain



In the course of my travels, I've found several good places to eat.  Here are a few of them (as well as some that are close to home):

Nationwide, Multiple


  • Fresh Choice and Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes -- salad bar buffets where you can eat healthily.  Fresh Choice is strongest around San Francisco, while Souplantation is more prevalent in Southern California. 




  • Richtree -- similar to the Mövenpick Marché; in fact, most of these used to be Mövenpick Marchés or Marchelinos.
  • Moxie's -- a decent Canadian chain; I've visited the Windsor location
  • Kelsey's -- another decent Canadian casual restaurant chain; I've visited the one east of Windsor 
  • The Keg -- very good steakhouse chain with Canadian and US locations. I've been to the one in downtown Winnipeg.
