Travels with the Burnhams

Ray and Jeanne in the Philippines

We have spent between three and five months exploring the world every year since the winter of 1999-2000. The winter of 2007-8 brought new dimensions to our travelling when our daughter Erica and her family moved to Paris. We have learned to enjoy exploring Paris and sharing more of Europe with the family. During 2007 and 2008 we added a month of volunteer activities while travelling in the Philippines and Thailand.

We don't seem to want to stop travelling. There are so many interesting countries to visit. We will never complete our extensive bucket list, but we are trying!
