We travel several times a year within the US and every 2 years internationally. We like to "homestead" when we go to a city. Usually we stay one week in one place before we move on to the next. We rarely repeat places or countries but, like every rule, we have broken that one a few times. We generally choose apartments so I can cook the majority of meals "at home". I love cooking and foreign grocery stores are a lot of fun. I love the research portion of planning a trip and I am also type A enough that I want to be prepared. We look for places we can walk, drink beer, and see things we will remember forever.
