By the standards of 30 years ago - I was well travelled. By today's standards - maybe not quite so much :). I have lived in (not just travelled through) Asia, Europe, Africa and North America and set foot in many countries. Today, travel involves welcoming travelers, professionals and international and local students into my home in Edmonton. I have welcomed individuals from England, Mexico, Norway, Sweden, Russia, China, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, Korea, United States, Germany, France, Indonesia, Japan, Qatar/Ukraine, Bulgaria/Norway, Brazil and Kazakhstan as well as many from across Canada and my home province of Alberta.
