I like staying in private homes when in smaller communities and larger hotels when in big cities. I like to get to know a country by staying several weeks. I do a combination of trekking on foot and taking modern transportation to travel between locations. I tend to use public transportation instead of driving when in a foreign country. Favorite guide book series is Lonely Planet.
