Travel for me is about more than seeing the sights.Cooking classes? Yes! (In Morocco.) Hike. You betcha. (Yorkshires, Ireland ... well, probably all 31 of the countries I've visited.) Zip-lining and parasailing? Sure! (Missouri and New Zealand.) Sniff the redwoods in California? (California, of course! They smell like almonds by the way.) What do I avoid? Scenic drive, sitting in a bus or van too long, pretentious food and noisy venues. Just let me out and let me walk around a bit, stare at the amazing buildings or smell the breeze and then grab a bite to eat, especially if it's a sweet or desert. Oh, I'm also a freelance journalist and you can see my work at diannaobrien.com
