I was born in Kazakhstan and my wife Elen was born in Ukraine. We both immigrated to Seattle in mid 90s and met for the first time in 2004 near downtown Seattle. Our first conversation started talking about her recent month long trip to China and my recent 5 week trip to Europe. She had many questions about Europe and I had number of questions about China. We started dating and got married in 2006 and travel together around the world as much as we can since.
We both love to travel so much and this so called travel bug quickly spread to our daughter Nelly and we started traveling together. My biggest travel dream at this time is to visit at least 100 countries and all continents.
By this time, my travel accomplishments are all 50 states, 48 countries and territories and 5 continents, for Elen 42 states, 40 countries and 5 continents and together with Nelly we have visited 40 states, 28 countries and 4 continents (Nelly is only 6 years old).
