Hi, I'm a nature loving traveler. I don't consider myself a tourist and I enjoy being in the culture of the places we visit (not the resorts). I'm a big fan of science fiction and Stephen King books. 5 things I can't live without - air water food shelter companionship - my needs are simple and every vacation is full of experiences to be savored. My favorite destination was Bali. I stayed in someones house in Ubud. It was wonderful. Movie's - I like science fiction thrillers, not a fan of cheezy horrors or comedies. Others are nice, not my first choice. Music - I tend to avoid pop music and go for an eclectic mix of techno, jazz, blues, classical, heavy metal, world and air. Food - if it's new and different I'm willing to give it a try.
As a guest, you can expect that I will respect your property. I wont be demanding or rude or insensitive to local customs. I will try to leave your property in a state similar to when I found it and you can expect a lot of good private feedback to help you improve the experience for your next guest.
While I'm not a backpacker, hiker or camper, I have no problems doing these things. I travel to experience the way people live in their communities and to enjoy the things they have to offer. I really don't understand the purpose of going to a resort or an all inclusive fancy hotel when traveling for pleasure.
