Rockville, Maryland

I don't like to just sit around on vacation. I love to see different places, eat local foods, and do stuff. I avoid chain hotels and restaurants when possible. I believe in getting good value for my vacation budget - though I have done both sometimes, I don't usually stay at either hostels or 5-star hotels. Luckily, my wife has good taste and is great at picking the cream of the crop from my budget choices. I believe that on foot is the way to see the world, and am happy to wander the countryside or city for hours. Also, I like to eat and drink, so vacation is finding good food wherever it may be - I am more likely to splurge on food then lodging, but am not shy of eating a cheap dinner from a cart (street sausage in Vienna and dumplings in Shanghai are some of my favorite meals!) I consider Washington, DC my "home-base" and love to spend time there. Favorite city vacations: Rome, New York, Washington DC Favorite nature vacations: Zion NP, Yellowstone NP, Grand Canyon NP
