About Me

Since May 2009

Lives in Cape Girardeau, Missouri

50-64 year old male

Have always enjoyed travel--from simple day trips to multi-month odyssey. Turkey is by far my favorite foreign destination. I mainly avoid commercial tours and prefer private touring (sometimes self-guided, sometimes with a local driver/guide.) It does not trouble me to get lost either in a city or in the countryside, and I seem to have a knack for finding very special places well away from the typical tourist sites. I do my best to eat only local food and learn at least the most basic words in any country I visit. My tours are well researched and self-designed, but I sometimes enlist the aid of travel agents from the country being visited. My favorite hotels are typically small to medium sized that cater to guests both from the country where located and a good mix of international guests. My ideal holidays are quite long (4-12 weeks) with a carefully planned but unhurried itinerary.
