My first visit to the USA was for a summer school at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington State. I was sponsored by a NATO air-sea interaction scholarship.

In 2020 the Covid-19 pandemic has kept me ashore for the season and I decided to add some descriptions of past times for which I have photos – mainly for my own enjoyment! On some of my trips abroad for work conferences and committee meetings I took time off before or after to do some travelling. This is a record of some of those trips; I’m adding more as I find the photos.
