Professional couple from midwest USA with a great deal of experience in travel -- both working and living. (Former corporate and group travel agent/planner and resort hotel manager, & Former TA DE for Bargain Travel; less free time.) We prefer "local immersion" and tend to avoid organized tours of any sort. Some (minor?) proficiency in speaking foreign languages -- find this to be VERY helpful when abroad in building goodwill. ******** We have a great deal of experience with "budget travel" -- nothing wrong with a good value for hard-earned money spent -- plus, it frees up funds to "do more" by "doing more" with less. ******** Will certainly not be offended if you ask for our advice (and decide against using it), and we are perfectly comfortable with there being differing viewpoints, and hope you will -- as we try to do -- solicit knowledge from ALL comers and make up YOUR mind on what works best for YOU. After all.... it's YOUR trip! We enjoy helping folks have fun!!
