Profile for kwilkinson

Name: Keith Wilkinson

From: USA

About Me: I am a retired religious educator. I love meeting people, exploring new cultures, and learning about the world. Adventure and travel excite me, even at 73. Since 2008, I have wandered around the world three times. These are journeys of personal discovery. History, people, their cultures and religions all fascinate me. I desire to enrich my learning and experience as a traveler through life. In 2010, I made two additional trips to Nepal and India. A message on the back of one of my T-shirts says, "Not All Who Wander are Lost." That is my credo--to lose oneself in spirit of adventure is to find oneself as never before. Thanks to all who join me in my adventures.

Fascinating. Dangerous. Delightful. The world seems to offer so much for the wayward traveler and the willing learner. Once begun, one does not stop exploring. Curiosity leads to knowledge and knowledge leads to more curiosity--a never-ending journey.

OKC's Will Rogers Airport

Being the spontaneous sort, I made a spur-of-the-moment decision to join a friend of mine who is in Nepal on a special project. Following a few days there, I will drop down to India and revisit dear friends.

Deepika and Suresh

My dear friend Suresh got married in Pushkar, India and I fulfilled my promise to attend. His was one of six weddings I attended. His sister, his future brother-in-law, and a friend also married. That was a lot of dancing in the streets!

Beautiful mountains

Ever notice how things come in threes? They really don't, but it's a way for our minds to group things. For me, it's a good way to justify my third personal around-the-world trip, exploring it's people and the cultures in which they live, hope, and dream.

Knobby knees pulls ahead

Here I go again, for the fourth time, to visit Nepal and India. The draw: close friends and incredible experiences from the mountains of Nepal to the deserts of Rajasthan India. I will be back in time for Hindu festivals and the great Pushkar Camel Fair.
