I try to make travel/vacations to be a whole lot more about relaxation, a little bit of indulgence, and seeing/experiencing something new and beautiful if possible. A natural planner, writer, and glass is half full-er, I'm also a lazy traveler who hates hassles and doesn't like to get up too early or get back too late. No motels and fast food except while road tripping. Convenience and bang for the buck are important. Visas, customs, bad weather, the TSA, and indifferent hospitality/airline workers suck. Next exotic vacation: St. Petersburg, Russia. I enjoy learning a few keys phrases in whatever the native language is (languages are such fun!) Too bad I often can't figure out what the responses are! Overall, I consider myself to be a practiced leisure traveler, but am by no means a Lonely Planet pathfinder. I do have two kids and travelling with them is tough! Good luck and happy travels! Cheers, mate!
