As a traveler, I'm not into the tourist-y stuff. My main objective for traveling the world is to get to know more people, learn about the culture, way of life and customs of the people. For me, traveling is much more than the sights and attractions, but it is more about the experience. My favourite part of traveling is being able to live like the locals do, even if just for a very short while, and of course, gaining new friends.
I also believe in eating good food; but good food does not have to be fine dining or expensive. I'm open to try out new cuisine/ different food (well, except for some of my food allergies!).
I'm a little bit shy, but I love to get to know people and gain new friends. One could say that I'm more of a listener than a talker. :) I love hearing interesting stories.
