I'm a foodie; I love gardens, museums, reading, and natural history—an unabashed dilettante. But in general, I prefer to take my travel slowly and quietly.
What I want as a traveler: privacy, no strong fragrances. I'm somewhat reclusive, but I also won't hesitate to ask you questions, or to say Hello if I see you. :)
For international travel: My knowledge of French and Spanish is pretty basic and rough. I do try to speak those languages, if you don't understand English—however broken my linguistic skills might be. Sometimes I've found that trying to converse about food can help bridge social gaps.
