Since Mar 2005

35-49 year old female

South Elgin, IL

Usually one FAMILY vacation a year with a focus on what our very small children would enjoy...tends to be beach/water related so far....BUT 1-3 times per year, I travel with my husband to a place weve never been (usually somewhere in Europe)...Tend to stay at 4 or 5 star properties, but not usually chain-hotels if we can help it....like to experience things like locals do but also want the upscale flavors...like good food and wine....I enjoy thoroughly researching my vacations online. In the past, I have backpacked Europe, travelled on a budget, and am still willing to rough it-but now that I can afford a little more, I tend to spend a little more...I do not go on tour-group package vacations.
