All About Me
I really love traveling and I love planning my trips too.
I'm more for creating my own self-guided tours. So where I can explore the cities and outskirts with safe & acceptable local transport, I opt for this. I like to get a good feel of the place. I also like to do things at my own pace, spending as much time as I like should I choose to.
I often find organised tours a waste of money when I could have arranged the transportation and entrance fees on my own. .
Sometimes I do find those one day organized guided tours necessary, but only if I really have to: if there is a language barrier, poor or unsafe transportation or it really is the only way to see much in a short space of time, so be it. I hate missing out on things ;-)
I like to save as much as possible on my travels as our currency to the dollar exchange rate ranges around 14 to 1 (unfortunately not in our favour).
I'm game for adventure and opt for the most economical mode of transport. I try and save as much money as possible, although camping, backpacking & hostels are a no no.
I love geographical settings and appreciate a good museum every now and again. I love Castles, discovering tiny avenues in towns, walking the cities, strolling in beautiful parks, getting a feel for big shopping centres and meandering through local supermarkets.
I enjoy testing food on the go and appreciate a scrumptious dinner in a local restaurant. I enjoy studying the local people and striking up conversations with them to learn more.
It's wonderful to be absorbed in the Local music and tasting the local food. Ii feel it is important to tantalizes the taste buds and senses that further opens windows to other cultures and regions.
Although I love the beach, I'm not one for sitting on the beach for hours on end, but would prefer to utilize that time to go sightseeing and exploring. I love to be busy all the time (well most except for a breather in a park, a nice dinner or just sitting and enjoying the surroundings).
So I hope that sums me up in a nutshell.
