I live in Bristol, UK but love travelling to cities far and wide. My boyfriend and I want to cover the A-Z of cities (in that order) over the next three years.... or at least make a good dent in the alphabet.
We love eating out at local cafes and restaurants, but equally like to pick up local produce and cook for ourselves. We like to do this when we are away too, therefore we always try to find an apartment instead of a hotel to stay in. It's not about the big tourist attractions for us; we like to get to know what the locals do.
We are very respectful of other people's property and treat places we stay as if it's our own home.
