50-64 year old male

Antioch, Illinois

I prefer to explore on foot. I favor cities for that reason and I also love a good transit system. I plan trips with a loose agenda and usually end up pitching it when I reach my destination. I'm not hard to please so when I break bad on a hotel, restaurant or an attraction it's absolutely sincere. Good, honest effort put forth by an employee or service worker I encounter on my travels goes a long way in making up for other obvious issues or service problems that I encounter. I am a jazz music lover and I have hit a jazz club or festival in almost every place that I have traveled for pleasure. I treat travel industry employees well. Yes, it's easier to do when you are on vacation but I also do that when I travel on business, which is quite a lot. I can only imagine what they have to put up with day-in and day-out. I do not travel in luxury style but I am grateful that I have the means to enjoy wonderful travel adventures several times a year now.
