I'm very interested in photography, so I tend to pick pretty and interesting places to visit. My travel ranges from business (domestically and internationally) to pleasure (mostly international, with my partner of 11+ years, Sandy).
My interests are deep in history and culture, and try to study up on my international destinations, and plan quite carefully. Except for business, we stay mostly at AirBnBs, where we tap into the local knowledge of our hosts. I stay in a lot of medium-priced chain hotels for work, so when I am on my own, that's the last kind of place I want.
