Must have a creative sense of imagination.
Pleasure is taken in the smallest things – small oddities and genuine experiences.
Must not include “must-have” fast food. I don’t believe you.
Great stories & history will always inspire, especially if from your own experience.
Sense of adventure and spontaneity a bonus.

Just saying, I agree with my friend Jill, that the advice and recommendations of locals or experienced visitors.. is usually the best way to experience a place.
