I like to see new places and experience new things. I feel an inexplicable and most probably entirely pointless enthusiasm when visiting a new country and I have a long list of things I would like to do and places I’d like to visit.

Countries I have visited, done business in or where I have lived

Norway**, Sweden*, Kenya, Tanzania, United Kingdom*, France, Monaco, Ireland*, Malta*, Denmark*, Finland*, Iceland*, Faroe Islands*, Germany*, Austria*, Lichtenstein, Netherlands*, Belgium**, Luxembourg*, Spain*, Andorra, Finland*, Portugal*, Italy*, San Marino, Czech Republic*, Hungary, Gibraltar, Greece*, Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, United Arab Emirates**, Oman**, Yemen, Slovenia*, Slovakia, Switzerland, United States of America, Russia, Poland*, Latvia, Jordan, Turkey, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Nepal, Iran, India*, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam

** = I have lived in the country, * = I have done business or worked in the country

Things I’d Like to Do, places I’d LIKE to see

Less for you to read than for me to remember, this is a list is hot on my mind in 2012.

  • “Balloon” over Serengeti during the wildebeest migration.
  • Swim – and picnic in the rain in Salalah
  • Visit Madain Saleh in the deserts of Saudi Arabia
  • Summer ski on the Hinter-Tux Gletscher
  • Attend the New Year’s Concert in Vienna
  • Visit Tibet
  • Hike from village to village in Ethiopia’s highlands
  • Walk on the Great Wall of China
  • Buy a Swiss Hang drum – maybe…
