I enjoy traveling for many reasons. I like to go to new places, but I enjoy going back to familiar favorites as well. I want to learn about the history of a place, but also explore the food, music, art and drink. I want to walk and take photographs. I want to come home from any place I visit with a better understanding of what matters to the people who live where I visited.
Nearly three years ago I moved from Madison, Wisconsin to New York, New York, so some of my travel is now local as I explore a city that I've previously known only through business trips and a few vacations from many years ago. It's different living in a place that is a travel destination for so much of the globe. You start to view tourists a bit differently, which changes how I am as a tourist.
