IMPROVISED ROAD TRIPS – Two on the loose. No tours, no reservations. Maps, cameras, car. We offer two menus: First, the Countries Menu, tracking our many roughly two-week trips. Second, the Culture and Conflicts menu, the humanities side of travel and later research, reaction: Topics, politics, culture, history, exploitation patterns anywhere. Here, meet Dan — trips navigator and ambassador. His advantage is Down Syndrome, a universal. We are met with smiles and recognition. Thank you, Dan. Here, he found an armchair by the road overlooking the walled peninsula town of Primosten, Croatia. Walls. Vet. Armchair for mulling. Good find, Dan.
