On my own
I've been travelling on my own for about 10 years now. Sometimes I was accompanied by my son and other times I just made it on my own. I enjoy exploring at my own pace, making or undoing a schedule, being spontanuous, getting lost and not always on purpose and pretty much avoiding the tourist paths. This is not to say that I don't show curiosity for the landmarks and noted places suggested by travel websites or books, but I try to get a "feel" for the country by observing the locals, sharing and eating with them. I enjoy keeping a travel diary and every so often take one off my bookshelf and re-read it in hopes of re-living that specific moment, that captured memory of a past travel.
