Since Sep 2010

35-49 year old male

Kamloops, Canada

Not the guy lying by the pool. I can not stand all - inclusive because nothing sounds more boring to me than staying at the same place all freaking week! If I go to Cuba, I want to hang with the Cubans, not a bunch of tourists!!! For me, travel is about experiencing other cultures, other foods, other lifestyles. I hate when I see McDonalds in Athens, Subway in Paris... I want to experience the country, state, province, city, town, village, for what it is, not what tourists want it to be. All that said, a trip down the road to a pub I've never been to can be just as great an experience as a trip to Europe. For me, it's about the experience, the people, the atmosphere. Yes, I do hit the major attractions when in a certain place, but my best memories of all the trips I have ever been on, are the ones that had nothing to do with tourism. Sleeping on a rooftop in Ios, getting lost (getting the local cabbie lost) in the asian side of Istanbul... running out of room, write me for more...
