For me, travel is about experience; culture, interesting people, history, unusual food, and art. I love to see things I’ve only read about, eat local foods and learn about the place I’m in. When it comes to the end of an active day of sightseeing I want a hotel that caters to my creature comforts so I can relax and refresh. I judge restaurants on what they are aiming for. If the eating establishment claims to be one of the 10 finest in the world, I will judge them more harshly than a small bistro in tourist alley. In many countries around the world, physical attributes make it impossible to “blend in”. When I travel, I'm a tourist and don't pretend to belong there although I do try to learn as much as possible from the locals. I love to travel. There is so much world I have not yet experienced. My motto: Home is where the luggage is.
