I'm a graphic designer -- born and raised in Indonesia, lived for about 15 years in the US (mostly in Boston) and now back in Indonesia again. In between I've also spent extended time (2-3 months each) in Belgium and the Netherlands.
I'm the type of traveler who -- instead of trying to cram in a lot of sightseeing into a trip -- prefer to take it easy and just quietly soak in the experience of being in a different place... see how people live, find interesting neighborhood spots, and just generally pretend as if I was living there, for a few days. I also like to cook, so when on vacation I like to look for a place with a kitchen, and if I can learn something about local produce and local food, all the better.
Love books. And dogs. And good coffee ;). Most treasured travel experiences were when I visited Norway for the first time and totally fell in love with Bergen. And another was one of the times I was in Bali when I chose to go away to a small village in the mountains instead of the (albeit gorgeous) Bali beaches. Oh, and Penang for the food. I'd go back there just to eat =).
