Selamat Datang!

In Bahasa Indonesia, "selamat datang" means "welcome".  This blog entry is a short introduction to me and my new blog "Global Goebel Travels".


The entire world....  I'm from a small town in southern Illinois and currently work in Indonesia.


My last name.....  My family's ancestors were German farmers that immigrated to the American Midwest in the mid-1800's.


It's what I do....  In 2001, I used frequent flyer miles to get to Thailand on my first trip outside of North America.  I've been in love with travel since about my second day on that trip and have been to 50 countries (and counting) since.

some girls selling fruit in Sisophan, Cambodia.
