Subject: Introduction - new member in Seattle
Moderator's note - Welcome, Peg!

Hello,   I live in the Seattle area.  Because I am still working, I have a limited amount of time for travel.  However, I travel a great deal for my job and have been able to visit a number interesting places.  I have traveled extensively in Europe, both for business and pleasure.  In addition, I have visited Alaska, Korean and Japan, Australia, Kuwait and Bahrain, Mexico, Iceland and Scandinavia on extended business trips.   This year, I plan to travel to Berlin on business and Italy and France on vacation.  Because I have been able to visit some destinations a number of times, I have developed friendships with individuals in several countries.  I am looking forward to both providing and receiving information on travel.   Cheers,   Peg Seattle
