Join the Author as he shares memories, both poignant and humorous, from four decades of travel - primarily in foreign lands. From his first trip to Europe, when he quickly learned that even the most careful travel plans can go astray for reasons beyond one's control, Richie has enjoyed most of the people he's met and the places he's visited - trying to learn more about himself at the same time, by analyzing his personal reactions to these experiences. Along the way, he has met unforgettable people, seen places which are quickly changing, had his beliefs challenged, and gained insights which altered the direction of the rest of his life. In the course of his travels, he also unexpectedly came upon a number of celebrities, and comments here on encounters with: Gore Vidal, Robert F. Kennedy, Diahann Carroll, Dan Rather, Cameron Mitchell, Julie Harris, Jesse Jackson, Margaret Mead, Forrest Tucker, Donald Sutherland, Richard Branson, John Hurt, Rosemary Murphy, Don Johnson, Barbara Barrie, Princess Anne, Julianne Moore, and Ann Miller. The memories detailed here cover a wide geographic spectrum - including Peru, Germany, Greece, England, Mexico, Ireland, Spain, Hungary, Italy, Russia, France, Denmark, Turkey, Argentina, Portugal, Sweden and The Netherlands. So, hop on The Plane To Lisbon and join the Author as he explores the world and tries to learn life-lessons along the way!
