Having spent 34 years in the Coast Guard
and moving over a dozen time, he
knows something about travel. Having
gotten food poisoning in Hong Kong, Singapore, Honolulu, New York and Los
Angeles, he also knows something about what restaurants to avoid, as well
as those to attend ... and how to deal with food poisoning.
Having retired in 1998 and enjoying travel, he knows something
about doing so economically. To say he’s an expert in any of this is wildly optimistic.
Between military cruises, business trips and recreational travel,
he’s visited Europe, Africa, North and South America (Alaska and
Canada), Asia and Oceania. He
enjoys fine wine and fine food, but his only work is voluntary at the
Mariners Museum and Jamestown Settlement, both in the Tidewater area of
Virginia. Consequently, most
of his dining is in medium priced restaurants, with an occasional foray
into the American Burger Palaces. He
travels about four months a year, including weeklong bicycling tours
wherein quantity has the edge over cuisine.

||Studying linguistics is not only invaluable in navigating our increasingly complex information society, but an intellectual and academic pursuit that has fascinated me for as long as I can remember. The choice of studying linguistics is an interest born from the fact that when you have studied five languages (I have studied Spanish and French in addition to Arabic and English and Italian that is my mother tongue), you begin to become curious about "the secret rules", the logic that exists beyond the grammar that governs the structure of a language.
From that moment my work experience has been focused on free lance translations from English or Arabic to Italian. Thanks to an internship offered by the Italian newspaper "Internazionale" in Spring 2000, I had the chance to publish two newspaper articles translated from Arabic to Italian.
And yet, in spite of my past accomplishments, I now believe that the final step in my linguistic development is the Masters in "Journalism and Mass Communication" which I am currently pursuing at the American University in Cairo.
