I'm a designer for websites and mobile games.
When travelling, I'm big on three things: food, architecture and people watching.
When staying at someone else's place, I try to be as transparent as possible and stay out of the way but will ask questions / for help when needed. If I'm not travelling with friends, I tend to like wandering around alone at my own pace and seeing what I want to see but at the same time, not opposed to being shown around :p.
Love hearing recommendations / suggestions from locals too!
