My Recent Trips Lisa explored Peru in June. Previously, she traveled to Budapest and into Transylvania over Halloween, following the historic path of Vlad the Impaler. She also explored the mystical medieval Dordogne Valley and Southwest France. This was a fly drive trip. We started in Bordeaux and drove to Saint Emilion, Albi, Rennes le Chateau and onto Carcassonne, where we saw the best preserved fortified medieval city in Europe.

Here are some of Lisa's favorite travel experiences: Peru was among the most fascinating places I've ever explored. Urubamba, Machu Piccu and Cusco are rich with history, culture and majestic beauty like none I've ever seen. Turkey was fascinating to me as well. It was an amazing experience spending time in Kusadasi, soaking up the culture at local restaurants and shops. I especially enjoyed, listening to a Symphony perform under the stars in The Great Theater in Ephesus, an ancient Roman/Hellenistic theater.
