What makes me a happy traveler? Access to wi-fi (unless I'm camping), leisurely schedules to explore neighborhoods, museums, local food and music/performance scenes. I'm not much for a tight agenda, preferring to discover life as it happens.
If I can find a place to read the local paper and talk with locals to discover the real news and the events where I'll find more locals than tourists, then I'm a happy guy. I want to explore local comedy scenes these days, too, since I've recently started a new career path as an aspiring comedian.
I love a good conversation, but don't need to fill the time with talking. Quiet time for reading or listening to music can keep me happily self-entertained when I'm on the road, too.
