Person Details

Update

Must have travel accessory: A Scottevest; it changed my life. Best travel: Easy: Honeymoon. Ten day cruise around the eastern Mediterranean. Dream invention: Instantaneous travel (I know the Star Trek stuff to be pretty much impossible for a few hundred years, but I'd settle for being digitally uploaded and downloaded into a fresh body on the far side. In fact, this is probably preferable as I'd get free back-ups out of it).
