I've noticed I've written 2 entries, but nothing about me, and this is supposed to a personal blog!
I'm very old, divorced, and brought my son up as a lone parent :
I have worked in IT most of my life. Enjoy independent travel, including taking a year career break, when despite being "old" I stayed in hostels. My favourite destinations are:
Spectacular scenery: Golden Circle, Iceland (preferred their ice laden falls to Niagara)
Historic monuments: Pyramids, Egypt
Club: The Cross. A little bit "counter culture and grungy" full of weird Heath Robinson type art. Away from the tourist traps of Prague, near Holesovice Railway Station. I went in 2005, the few foreigners who went then, were like me, staying at a near-by hostel. There are now hundreds of entries for it on Google, hopefully it hasn't lost its character.
Culture - Turkey, among the most friendly people I've met, and lots of East/West history, and if you go you have to visit Istanbul.
