Bob Parda Profile

I am a retired U.S. Navy officer. My wife Cathy and I own Advantage Travel & Tours. We have toured every UN recognized country (most several times) but I believe the best way to see a country is to visit the highlights it promotes. WHS destinations are the most tested places and should be a focus of personal travel.
