Meet the Author Pam

A buddy, Dan, who happens to be my son, life-long hyperactivity, my strange love for work, an endless wanderlust, a newly developed geekivity, a personal internet addiction, a compelling need to write –how can I manage to create Meet_the_Author_Pamsomething out of this crazy list?

Dan and I decided that we wanted to collaborate on a project that would combine our favorite topics, which happen to be our areas of expertise. Mine is travel, his is consumer electronics. We went through all the discussions of what, where and why before we landed on the Zippy Reviews concept. It is more than great fun to be able to work with my son. I don’t know if it will keep me young or age me faster. But it is fun.

How did I become such a vagabond/travel lover/airport aficionado? Probably that started as a kid when my parents dragged our family all over the US because they were travel crazed. Scraping frost from the inside of my bedroom window as a kid, riding in a VW Bug with minimal heat in 10 degree below zero weather, and sliding on ice when driving also was enough for me to dream of a vacation in sight of palm trees and beaches. Traveling to see the wonders of the world, whether natural or manmade, is one of life’s joys and was fostered by my early travels. Meeting the people of different cultures sparks my curiosity. Travel is an education as well as a joy. Those jammed-in seats in the planes aren’t so wonderful, but a small price to pay for what is at the end of the flight.

Now I live in sight of those palm trees and beaches but I still want to visit every corner of the world and share it with you. I always have a trip or two or three planned so you will hear about where I am going or where I have been. Check out some of my photographs in the slide show. Leave a comment to let me know what you think or ask me where they were taken. I will be happy to hear from you and would love to tell you about any of them. Travel well!
