I'm a teacher and I travel at every available opportunity, mainly in Europe, but some further afield. I prefer to stay in self-catering places as I'm a keen cook. Big cities are fun for a while, but my ideal retreat is a place that is away from crowds, preferably with a night sky to admire. The main things I look for when traveling are good food, markets, art and culture, landscape, natural beauty, history, and a comfortable, self-catering home base.
