I love travel and experiencing new places and people. I write about places and things I like and if you look around the blog you will see this is no big commercial enterprise here.
I like to do what I call, “Getting off the tourist path.” To me that means even in a place full of tourists you can still find those hidden gems. Whether it is a historical place, great place to eat and shop or just somewhere interesting that most tourists will never see. It is all about experiencing the places you visit to the fullest.
I call myself the Traveling Fool because I love to travel and have done more than a few foolish things in my life.
This started as a blog to chronicle some of my travels and those places where I would like to visit. Along with my comments on the industry, travel in general and yes even some complaints. I wanted a place that people could come and enjoy the journey with me and make their voices heard about various topics.
I lived four years in Germany while in the military and enjoyed traveling Europe while I was there. I was also in Asia and since retiring have worked in other locales. I have been lucky enough to travel to over 30 countries and while that is miniscule compared to many travel bloggers it’s not bad since I work full time. I don’t work in the travel industry and what I write comes from experience, research and having a strange curiosity about people, places and cultures.
I don’t do link exchanges or advertisements just for the sake of it. If you see a link on my page it is because I trust it and value the product or it is a website or blog I enjoy and rely on for info and commentary. Any sponsored post for which any payment was received is noted at the bottom of the post.
Some links on this page do earn small amount of money if you click on them and make a purchase. I would never recommend any item if I didn’t believe in it’s value to you. Plus, every little bit helps keep this site going and I appreciate the support.
Join me, The Traveling Fool, as I hope to inspire people to get out, travel more and get of the tourist path so they can truly experience and appreciate the people and places that make this world great.
