We are on a family vacation in Italy.
As much as I love exploring new parts of the world, my favorite part of travelling is the friendly, outgoing, travelling culture. Every evening on the terrace of the different hotels we stay at, there are a group of Travellers hanging out, drinking wine and sharing their experience and adventures.
In just a week, aside from many very hostipatble italians, we have met Russians, Germans, Americans, Aussies and Kiwis, all of hedom had fascinating stories to tell. My daughter (10 years old) all about international finance from an american central banker over dinner one night. My wife and i spoke about corruption in the Ukraine with a very shady Russian during that same dinner. We learned about the human psychology of environmentalism over drinks one evening and got an invitation to visit new friends from Nurrumberg.
Whenever we travel, we find this. Open, fun, friendly, interesting people. No matter where we go, it is always the highlight of our travels
