Love to travel, have been travelling since childhood thanks to my father's work, and travelling strong for 35 years with my hubby who also has great love for exploration....Mostly off beat places and we never ever make bookings in advance. The fun is totally lost if you have to adhere to a schedule. So only the very very necessary bookings.... otherwise we go by local tips and references. I think one needs to be receptive of the wisdom, beauty and perfection in the world. I try to absorb as much as I can, and come back from each of my trips wealthier than before. As they say "jobs fill your pockets and adventure fills your soul"....so I say....let's go fill our souls.
