One of the unusual things I feel as I go from place to place -- whether a grand palace or a wild path through the woods -- is that I own the spot I am standing on at that particular moment in time. If you think about it, it's true. Wherever you are standing or sitting -- in those moments that space belongs to you. With that in mind, the wonderful places we visit become even more meaningful to us. I feel like I belong and my interest takes on a more personal aspect. It's a different attitude, I know, but it makes my travels -- both near and far -- richer and more special to me.

sights in the entire world!

fall into the sea with a sound like a gunshot.
