I travel to experience culture, history, and natural beauty/scenery. I enjoy trying new food and meeting and chatting with new people. And while I am intrigued greatly by an excavation of an ancient civilization, museums, pastry shops, or a working farm, I feel a special satisfaction exploring the countryside for its animals, fields, forests, mountains, and rivers. A hobby of mine is trying local honey and butter. They seem to have flavors and aromas that vary from country to country and farm to farm that may even rival the uniqueness of a wine's "terroir."
