Unlike people who complain on crowded planes, I'm never happier then getting on a jet and going somewhere...anywhere. For a short time, there are no phone calls, grocery shopping, work, and everyday problems. I am off to a new experience with it's own new set of problems. Problems you would never think you'd encounter. But, that's travel.

About Sheila Simkin
Sheila Simkin, a native Chicagoan, has been traveling the world since 1960. The travel bug first hit on her honeymoon in Miami. Fidel Castro had just taken over Cuba and lured by rock-bottom prices, Sheila sweet-talked her ex-husband into abandoning Miami for Cuba. (It took a lot of sweet-talking!) She has since visited over 130 countries, touring, hiking, trekking, snow shoeing, volunteering on archeological digs and compulsively shopping. Sheila can usually be found traveling, but, during brief unpacking stops in Chicago, she spends time with her grandchildren, and works as an office administrator to save for her next excursion. Whenever possible, Sheila attempts to lure one of her children or grandchildren to accompany her and her husband, Steve.
