Since Jun 2008

50-64 year old female

Miami, Florida

I consider myself to be a "value" traveler, who likes to get the most for my travel dollar. At the same time I appreciate and look for distinctiveness, graciousness and comfort for the soul as well as the body wherever I sleep and eat. I'm not embarrassed to ask for discounts to which I am entitled (advertised specials, AAA, AARP, academic, senior and, when with my husband, veteran). Mostly vegetarian (dairy, eggs and certain fish okay), I enjoy imaginative and tasty cuisine from fresh ingredients with any sort of ethnic flavor and flair, especially at what I consider to be a reasonable and affordable price. I try to take advantage of free and inexpensive/discounted cultural events and to visit sites that are off the beaten track. We travel by public transportation within major cities when possible, living like locals and avoiding tourist traps. I love good walking tours within museums and historic neighborhoods with friendly, well-informed guides, outdoor concerts and markets
