I'm a respectful traveler, blessed with a wonderful wife, and many an international trip under my belt.
My dream trip: spend a year visiting four cities around the world. We'd rent an apartment in each city of three months. That way, we could make friends with some local folks, and get a good taste for the local culture and food, but still have time to explore the surrounding area.
What are the four cities? No idea!
Off the top of my head:
San Martin de los Andes, Argentina;
Wanaka, NZ; and
(somewhere in SE Asia or India). I'm open to your suggestions.
Cheers, and safe travels!
