Merry meet. I am MrBill and I would like to welcome you to â€œWhere the Heck are You?â€ my column featured on Gather Travel. â€œWhere the heck are You?â€ isÂ the usual greeting I receive fromÂ friends and familyÂ since they are never quite sure just where I may have been. I like to wander and ponder and to that end I take a lot of photographs on my journeys and compose thoughts to capture memories. â€œWhere the heck are You?" is moreÂ a traveler's column than a travel column. I wonâ€™t tell you about the best deals on packaged vacations or the low down on the newest five-star resort. Instead joinÂ meÂ for a journey to foreign shores, tropical locales, and places you mayÂ notÂ have even heard of. Along the way I will introduce youÂ to people; their cultures, art and cuisine, and together we will share an adventure.
~* Where? am I *~Â
here I am!
is always there,
where ever I am.
Twixt I go
hence I came.
Rising above the horizon
setting 'neath it's distant sister shore.
be it here or there,
or someplace tween,
tis the spot my bootheel rests -
is the there,
you will find -
