Have lived mostly in the interior West, but also the East and Midwest. Learned early that I'd rather spend money having experiences than buying stuff. Have traveled all over the US, much of Europe, Mexico, Central America, Australia, north Africa, China & Mongolia, & SE Asia. Am looking forward to exploring S. America, and returning to Australia & visiting New Zealand. I travel for business & pleasure, independently & book my own travel. I'm past staying in hostels and dislike big, fancy hotels, preferring small family hotels or short-stay apartments. What's better than to eat and drink the local offerings in informal settings?
