Age 65, I live in Albufeira Portugal having emigrated from Tonbridge, Kent (UK) in June 2005.
I do not drive, so on my travels I am an extensive user of trains and buses - air travel when necessary/unavoidable!
I prefer budget/chain hotels maybe just a little out of the city centre close to a metro, train station or bus stop, as I find that often reduces costs considerably.
I usually only visit museums etc when it is raining or if there is something of a really specific interest. Otherwise I enjoy walking round the cities and countryside.
I return to the UK about 3 times a year and for the past ten years have been also a regular visitor to the area of Bordeaux, France.
Outside of all this i am a sports fan, particularly football (soccer to the Americans among you) and cricket.
