I'll be wandering for all of August. Partially in the land that the Internet forgot (Burma) so I'll barely get to check my email let alone see what's going on in Wikitravel. When I get back in September, if my babies ([[New York City with children]] and [[London with children]]) haven't grown up, I'll help them add a few inches! Also need to trim some more fat from [[New York (city)]] and push the New York articles toward becoming good travel guides. And, figure out how to make maps. This is fun, thanks Wikitravel!

I am, therefore I wander. (Or wandered. With two kids, I barely get to the local bodega these days!). In addition to Wikitravel, I edit as RegentsPark on Wikipedia.

Travels[edit]

While New York City has been my primary home for the last twenty years, I've done short stints living in London and Paris as well. I've traveled extensively, with many visits in many years, in Burma and India. I love spending a little of each summer in Tuscany and Provence and visit Paris every opportunity I get. In between all this, I've managed to visit dozens of European countries (with Spain at the top of the list) and a few others in Asia and the middle East. The list, for what it's worth: Australia, Austria, Barbados, Belgium, Bhutan, Burma, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Italy, Laos, Mexico, Nepal, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Turkey, United Kingdom, USA, Vietnam. Some of these places so long ago that any information I have is useless - Hungary in the 1980s probably bears no resemblance to Hungary today, and, I'm sure, the Laos of today does not look like the Laos of 1996! Some I keep going back to (France, Spain, Greece, Burma, Barbados, and India top that list). Some, the GDR for example, are no longer extant!

Languages[edit]

English, Hindi (pretty darn good!), Spanish (picked up on the streets of New York and half way decent) and very basic Burmese (can't find that anywhere on Wikitravel:Babel).
