Middle aged, married, active, spouse and I enjoy both urban areas and wide country spaces. Vacation spots range from big cities to off-the-beaten-track parks where we can put up a tent.
Things I can't live without: Books. Books. Books. Coffee. Chocolate. A useful career. A good bakery. More than one good bakery.
We've lived in New England for 20 years and love the seasonality. When we travel, which is not that often, we prefer inns, apartments, bnbs over large hotels, and we also like places where we can be independent and keep our own schedule. We like getting to know a place by walking, biking, using mass transit.
