From my first trip at age 17 to Europe I've had a severe travel itch! I love to travel anywhere and everywhere! I've been to the Amazon in Brazil, stood on top of Machu Picchu at dusk with no one else around but a few alpaca, gotten lost in Venice, braved a taxi ride in Rome, hiked the Via dell' Amore in the Cinque Terre, and camped in the hills of Germany (I was much younger then!). I've "roughed it" and I've been pampered in luxury and any way it goes I love it! The best part about traveling is being among the people, learning about different cultures, experiencing new things. I mostly stear clear of tour companies as I find they are way too structured and although churches can be beautiful, I don't want to spend my entire vacation in them (tour companies seem to love them I guess because they're free!). I'll travel for as long as I'm able .
