TYPE OF TRAVELER

To give some perspective to what you will find in our recommendations, here is a little background on the type of travelers we are. Keywords include: architecture, design, unique, adventure, hotspot, old-school, off-the-beaten-path, local experience.

EAT | We love street food and there isn’t too much we won’t eat [restricted only by allergies], this is where we feel we meet the real characters of a country and experience the true culture. We seek out old-school restaurants, places that you literally can observe the history ooze from every crevice, & wish the walls truly did talk. We choose places to dine because of their interior space not just the delicious food & drinks.

SEE | Museums & art galleries are always on our travel itinerary, but we have a 2 hr maximum at any one place before our A.D.D kicks in. We take in cooking classes, small group or private walking tours to better understand the history, architecture & food of wherever we are visiting. We always check out the supermarkets & pharmacies pursing the goods for sale. And we can not go without a visit to the food markets.

STAY | We like luxury & architecturally interesting accommodation that is beautifully designed inside & out. Modern, vintage, antique, we like it all, it just needs to be unique. We really want to feel more like house guests vs. a corporate traveler, we choose boutique hotels, B&B’s and for longer stays rent an apartment / house.

Things we avoid on our travels: coach tours, restaurants close to major tourist attractions [don’t eat on the square], visiting during the high-season, irish pubs unless you are in Ireland, and any of the American Embassies [Starbucks, McDonald’s, KFC etc.]. These are our preferences they work for us, your preferences may vary and that is OK.
