Well, I'm actually an expat now, but since moving out to Spain, I've made some short trips to Stockholm, Copenhagen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Rotterdam, Prague, also Paris and Amsterdam again.

Not nearly as many as I should have gone to at this point, but something is better than nothing, I guess

I consider myself a traveller in that I travel. I am not one for tourist resorts but as long as I am travelling and learning and seeing new things, its mostly good.

I travel, but I can be a bit of a tourist. But, hey, at least I get out once in a while.

Been a while since I did some backpacking, but I do miss it and think about it constantly.

When I do take local trips for weekend or summer vacation within Spain, I still pack everything in my backpack rather than a suitcase. It's just so much easier to get by like that.

The backpacker within will never die....
