Since Jun 2010

50-64 year old female

Los Angeles, California

I love traveling, but mostly I love becoming a non-tourist and feeling the culture of a particular area and meeting the locals. It seems that I pick a region to travel to based on the cuisine of that area, not that I originally planned on that, but looking back on my travels it seems they center around the foods of the country/region. I don't care for fancy places, but I do prefer not to have problems with large bugs, animals are fine, just nothing over 4 legs please. I'm American, that being said, I won't be seen eating a hamburger in a foreign country. Not that I eat many of them at home either. I just don't see the need to eat what I am used to at home when I travel. I really love the experiences being in a foreign country offer and hanging out with ex patriots will not necessarily offer me anything new.
