I love to travel, but do not get to nearly as much as I would like. I am a bit of a linguaphile and love to study language, grammar and origin of words. I also speak, but not what I would call fluently, Deutsch, Dansk, Francais and of course English.
When I travel, the language and culture of the host country are most interesting to me even ahead of the sights.
I am very down to earth, but I like to travel first class. When I travel abroad I always use only public transport or go by foot. I treat a host's home even more respectfully than I do my own.
I am extremely conservative and one of my beliefs is that nothing can take the place of persistence and hard work.
