Dear and most-treasured readers,

My name is Dr. Richard Orzeck. Along with my wife, Theresa, I operate a small veterinary clinic in Trumansburg, New York.
When not at work doing all I can to save the lives of dogs and cats–or the occasional cow, I love to be off somewhere wandering about this amazing planet.
I am a member of the Traveler's Century Club, and have visited 152 countries and all seven continents. Besides being a veterinarian and adventure traveler, I am a former U.S. Navy sailor and dairy farmer, a prolific birder, scuba diver, amateur wildlife photographer, an expert in the Twelve Apostles, Somerset Maugham scholar, and (so I am told) a skillful provider of information.
