50-64 year old female

Long Beach, California

I was born in Russia, moved to USA 30 yearsago. Love travelling and exploring the cultures of the world. Prefer to travel with organized tours to the developing countries and comfortable on my own in developed world. I have been involved with luxury marketing for over 15 years , so I am a bit picky when it comes to hotels claiming luxury positioning. Usually, I will try to stay in a boutique or comfortable clean and the explore the local life without the tourists. Preferably. I also always talk to locals about the best local restaurants, transportation and shopping. It usually saves me quite a bit of money. I stayed in many expensive hotels when part of the tour package and if I am on my own for the food, I shop local. Would love to meet a fellow traveller with the same philosophy and save on single supplement!
