Hi! I’m Steve and I love to travel! I head out to see the world every chance I get. I took the photo of the glass snake above from the top of the San Giorgio bell tower in Venice, Italy. If I hadn’t visited the church, I never would have seen this wonderful piece of art.
I hope to spend more of my time on the road later in life. For now, I’m working and traveling when I can. We Americans don’t get a lot of time to take vacations, so we must effectively use the time we have.
I started this website because I wanted to document my travels and write about the things I experienced. 10 Minute Travel was born of the idea that 10 minutes is a good amount of time to read about a new place and learn why it is so interesting. The more I travel, the more I learn about amazing sights to see.
Going from place to place in Europe or Asia is an excellent way to see and experience the local way of life – wherever you might end up. If time wasn’t an issue, I would be content to stay put in one place for a month or two. The best way to get to know people is to be around for a while and make friends. But that’s hard to do when you are constantly on the go.
On the other hand, picking up and moving to a new city every three of four days allows for maximum exposure to the differences that each new city or town has to offer. I like to do both, but time is always a factor.
I’ve made it my life’s mission to see and experience as much as I possibly can. I find that planning a trip is almost as much fun as getting on the plane and taking off to explore new places. I also like to preserve memories of my travels by getting pictures and writing travel articles to share with anyone who wants to read them. I’m excited to continue taking good pictures and video and posting it right here – on 10 Minute Travel. I hope you’ll enjoy seeing them!
For those of us who are getting older, travel can be more challenging later in life. I encourage you to do your traveling now, as none of us are getting any younger! But, slowing down doesn’t mean that the experiences will be any less meaningful. And with age comes an appreciation for the finer things in life. Plan for your travels to be fun, engaging and invigorating. Also with age comes more time to travel. The golden years are truly a blessing and should be enjoyed to the fullest. Get on a cruise ship, take a guided tour, fly to some faraway place. Let someone else drive, clean the room and prepare your meals. You’ve earned it!
I invite you to go through the articles on these pages. See what is out there. Make some plans. Don’t put it off another day. The world is out there and would like you come for a visit.
This website is about my desire to see and experience firsthand the amazing history of the world’s cities, towns and the people who live in them. As I move into retirement, I plan to see much more. I plan to bring new sights and experiences to this website and share them with you. Check back here often as I add new content on a regular schedule.
Thanks for joining me!
