The way I like to travel: I like to go to cities and sit at cafes and watch people. I don't like hotels and itineraries. I prefer B&Bs or Agriturismi, here in Italy. I like to get to know people when I'm traveling and to mix with people from the area. My favorite thing to do is to go somewhere without a plan and talk to people once I get there to find out what I should see, where I should eat, and where I should stay.
My favorite quote is "The great only appear to be great because we are on our knees. Let us rise." Though there is disagreement about who said it, I prefer to attribute it to Larkin.
