Since May 2010

35-49 year old male

Washington DC

After 17 years of international work, I chose a job that didn't require international travel. Too many nights of sitting at my lap top in hotel rooms up until 4 am and then at the business center at 7 am. Now I travel for fun and education. If I can plan a trip myself, I do. If I'm going to a country that isn't like Europe or Japan, I use a good travel agency (Cambodia, Egypt, etc). I'm a member of the 6 continets club. Antartica isn't on my list right now...but we don't know for sure. I am happy at the Four Seasons and I'm happy at clean, rustic places. My ratings? I try and compare apples to apples and so forth. I can honestly rate a lunch counter place in WVA as wonderful and a white table cloth place here in DC as not worthy of 2 circles. If you read my reviews and see 5 circles vs 1 or 2 for a place in DC, Philly or NYC, then compare apples to apples, etc.
