Since Feb 2013

50-64 year old male

Concepcion, Chile

I am a sociology professor who likes to travel. I do so professionally (ever heard of academic tourism?) and for relaxation, alone and with family and friends. My favorite is what I call coffee house tourism... finding a nice centrally located outdoor cafe and enjoy a cup and a cigarette and watch the locals wander by or listen in on the conversations at nearby tables. I find it to be one of the best ways to get a feel for local culture... much more so than seeing the famous sights (which I also enjoy doing). I guess it's the sociologist in me. I have visited over 25 countries in my lifetime. I hope to break fifty before my lifetime ends. 8)
