Have traveled a bit.
Love traveling and love the different cultures. I am as happy sharing a small room in a local's house in some remote village as I am in a swanky hotel being spoiled rotten. I would never enjoy a passive, vacation-like life style.
I am not a backpacker. I do human rights work in countries I am passionate about. I don't like being passive for more than a couple of days. Sightseeing for the sake of sightseeing and taking pictures could possibly kill me dead.
