I don't take coach tours for my experiences abroad and prefer to be alone or with one companion. I've been travelling since 1967 and believe the most enjoyable travels are those unplanned. I like to hire a car and drive, just booking accommodation for 1st & last nights, then winging it although with a plan. Never backpack !! I love to drive away from beaten tourist paths. Success depends on where you are and what you are doing.. Italy is my first love. Florence the home of my heart. Australian by birth & heritage I have lived in the UK & US, love history, ancient worlds e.g. Egypt, Greece, Sarum, Druids etc. on the opposite side of this coin I lived 4 years in the heart of Hollywood - directly across from the Hollywood sign. The culture there is fascinating too, but it's not likely for many tourists to discover the experience. PS in the drop down box below is an option for travelling for fun or work .. these just do not apply to me. I travel to live & learn!
