Since Jul 2010

35-49 year old male

San Diego, California

I have been to over 80 countries throughout the world and have been an expat in Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East . I have a PhD. in tourism (yes that is an area of important scholarly research) thus my views are steeped in a mixture of real life experiences along with empirical research. I have travelled 5 star to 1 star. My areas of research include tourism development, tourism service standards, long term backpacker travel, and the cultural impacts of tourism. I have taken cruises, stayed at all-inclusives, stayed on islands without running water or electricity, $2 rooms in Bangkok, $500 rooms in Fort Lauderdale, climbed Machu Pichu, Tangoed in Buenos Aires, ate dog in the Philippines, bungy jumped in Queenstown, skydived in New Zealand, did the Sydney Harbor bridge climb, have drinken absynth in Prague, ziplined in Costa Rica, gambled in Aruba, got beaten up in Melbourne, almost pickpocketed in Bogota, have met countless travelers and locals throughout the world.
