San Diego Travel Writer Robin Dohrn-Simpson and husband Marc Simpson at Machu Picchu.


I have been traveling for as long as I can remember, starting with many cross-country summer vacations with my parents as a child. By the time I graduated from high school I had been to almost all of the states in the USA. A few years living in Brazil sparked a love affair with South America. I engulfed myself in the Travel Industry for over 20 years. I have traveled to over 70 countries and 50 states. (Yes, I collect countries and states like other people collect salt and pepper shakers).

  1. Hi Robin,
    It was a pleasure to meet you and Marc at Obelisco recently. I am glad that you enjoyed their wines. Next weekend we are going to Walla Walla to check out some wineries that have been recommended to us.
    Let us know if you get up this way again. We have found a few new wineries that you might want to try.
