Musings of an Inveterate Traveler II is the personalized experience of a pleasure traveler to: Alaska, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Israel. It includes text referenced pictures, personal comments, insights, history, travel snafus, animals, plants, people, places, humor, ironies, and the sheer joy of travelling as one of lifes greatest gifts. The book will be enjoyed by experienced and inexperienced travelers of all ages who can relate to the manifold experiences or who enjoy those adventures vicariously from the comfort of their easy-chair. The writing, like life, is filled with humor, ironies, ups and downs, twists, and curves. It is written without trying to judge the world, its leaders, or its economic systems; it takes place over four years, one unrelated trip at a time, with my partner Jean (aka JeanLu, Jeanala, JR,) and me as the only repeating characters. Each chapter contains opinions, personal preferences, various insights about people and me. My musings involve experiences common to all travelers; e.g., travel connection problems, errors and omissions, comic cultural contacts, joyful interludes, camaraderie, dining, shopping. Uncommon to many travelers I include spiritual musings about humans, animals, plants, rocks, the Earth, and the universe, Read, laugh and most of all, ENJOY!
