A Fellow World Traveler
Doug Naegele loves to travel too! – Using and abusing my recent photos, I’m here with Doug at the 20 year VHS reunion party! Doug and I had a great time sharing travel stories!
My 20 year high school reunion may have been a two weeks ago now, but I am still glowing in the joy of seeing old friends. It was so great to catch up with everyone, and even better that so many classmates are living fulfilling lives.
Doug, I learned, shares the same passion for all things foreign, and I really enjoyed chatting about our travels. It was nice to be able to describe the tiny town of Sapa in Vietnam and have someone nod their head in appreciation because they’ve been there, too.
It turns out Doug has traveled very extensively through SE Asis, South America, Russia, Mongolia, Tibet and China…for starters.
He and his wife, Edith, actually traveled the entire length of South America by local bus. This sounds so amazing and adventurous – I’m jealous! Doug gave me the link to the website they kept during their 2006 journey, and I’d like to pass that along to you. You can find incredible stories on their travel blog at www.dougandedith.com. Doug recommends story #26 Futbal in Lima. I give it a thumbs up, as well.
In case you are already bored with fall and longing for another summer vacation, you can take a terrific and intrepid (albeit virtual) journey with Doug and Edith! I’m having a great time following their trail!
