Hello! I have always enjoyed traveling, but researching travel has become a real passion in recent years. Of course, I love Tripadvisor - not only for my own research, but to help others. I started out helping on the Alaska forum because I so ached for the typical travelers I would see being herded like cattle, missing out on so much of what Alaska can offer. Alaska is a stunning destination! I also enjoy reading travel magazines and books - it is inspiring and informational. Nothing is as exciting as planning that next vacation! For me, as a budget traveler, one of my thrills is in finding the good deals - that is very satisfying to me, whether in my own state or some other location. I think one of the finest aspects of traveling and these travel forums is the people you meet - it is a great experience! Happy travels! coalminer
