For me, traveling is great for a perspective adjustment. Having an authentic experience is something I enjoy, a good share of my adventures can be spent as chill time, feeling the vibe of a block or a neighborhood. I like observing people in their natural environments and hearing about their day-to-day experiences.
As a guest I am pretty laid back, I'm sure people say that but I feel it's relatively accurate in my case. I enjoy good food and drink, the simple pleasures of life. Strolling (email hidden) and exploring the surroundings on foot or bike, this is fun!
Although I do enjoy simplicity, I am a little lost without Internet access, a daily intake of caffeine, a good night's sleep, something sweet to eat. A cuddle from my fiancé and a snuggle with my puppy make my world go round.
Basically, I try to get something good out of everyday. I'm pretty upbeat. A wise Beatle once said,"the love you take is equal to the love you make", if you're looking for my motto that would be about as concise as I could get (at the risk of sounding like a total clown).
