50-64 year old male

Brisbane, Australia

I like seeing new places. I usually look for an average hotel centrally located and try to see the sights on my own or by booking local tours. I try hard to see what it's like for the local people, so I spend a lot of time walking around and doing really mundane things like looking in supermarkets etc. I normally really enjoy my holidays as I invest a lot of time into research beforehand, so I don't waste any time after arrival wondering what to see or do. I suppose that in the process of researching, I also discard the places that don't appeal to me, so I invariably find I love wherever I go. Tripadvisor and other sites on the internet are really useful sources of information. My pseudonym was chosen at random one day, I was logging onto a site that required registration and I looked up and sitting in the book case was the Canterbury Tales.
