I'm inquisitive, observant, and appreciative of other cultures/regions...so when I travel, my intent is to look beyond the 'tourist' type hot spots and visit with townsfolk ...talk with the 'average citizen' about life and dreams. I'm not only interested in what fancy hotel to stay in or what five star restaurant to eat at (there are wonderful sources for that already) but where is the city center, what is the heart of the town's political culture, what is the history of the underserved in that area and what new opportunities/hopes/dreams are being resurrected? This process leads me to exciting lodging, grazing, and entertainment venues.
