I grew up in Maine, but have lived near Boston since 1998 when I got a job at a medical software company. My move to Boston was a trip. In a way, my career has been a trip. I’ve traveled around my company, doing several different jobs, one of which required travel. I now supervise a group of technical writers. Ample vacation time and a good salary allow me to take a long trip about once a year.
I am not a backpacker or professional traveler. Neither can I see myself on a cruise. The trip that hooked me on travel was a guided tour of Italy. While it remains one of my favorite trips for many reasons, one of those reasons was not the excessive amount of time on the tour bus.
I need a comfortable bed. My husband hates B&Bs. Neither of us wants to drive for hours while the other enjoys the view. We have a dog and a house, both of which we love. Hence, my preferred travel is independent but well-organized, and fits into a two week vacation. Luckily, I am a planner. I do lots of research before a trip, create a comfortably-paced itinerary, make the necessary reservations, and procure whatever confirmations, travel guides, and other paperwork will help along the way.
