I am unapologetically a tourist. I love to see and do the sights when i travel to a new place. I like bus tours, city tours, walking tours. I like to go up high to get a bird's eye view of a place. If i've visited a place a few times then i will tend to just "be" there, walk, meet up with friends if i can, explore parts of the location that might be off the beaten track but most places i don't know that well yet and there's always a gallery or museum to find somewhere :o)
I got a taste for travel in high school on a trip to France and Italy. I have always been fond of history, especially UK history and always wanted to go there. Many years passed between high school and the day i was finally able to afford to travel again. When that day came, the only logical choice was the U.K. In 1993, I booked a bus tour through Cosmos and have been traveling as much and when i could ever since!
Since that trip, in August 1993, I've returned to the U.K. many times, with another trip always in the planning stage. The main attraction these days are my fiance (who lives in the Manchester area) and lots of friends that live there, people to visit, and lots of things to do and new places to see.
In addition, I've been to Italy, Denmark, France, Ireland, Boston, New York City, and a few places across Canada from Newfoundland to British Columbia.
