Finding someone who loves travel as much as I do isn't easy. Everyone indicates that travel is one of their interests - a couple of trips a year for a couple of weeks at a time. Most people are attached to hearth, home, and family. I'm a wanderer and am looking for another nomad as my partner.
I have an RV, so almost all of my domestic travel is in that vehicle – my closet, my kitchen, my bedroom. No need to pack and unpack a suitcase; cheaper per night than a hotel room. During the day I’m out sightseeing: national parks, historical sites, museums of all kinds, factory tours, local cuisine restaurants. At night in the camper I use my computer or do pencil games (Ken Ken, crosswords, Sudoku, logic problems). There’s no TV. I’ve hosted friends and relatives in my RV. There’s plenty of room for two. In the evenings the two of us play board games.
I love traveling overseas and have lived in or visited more than 80 countries. I take those trips independently, not with a group. I plan well, but stay flexible; e.g., I don’t make hotel reservations ahead of time. My most recent trip was 50 days in Japan last fall, and I spent 59 days in Morocco and Portugal during April and May of 2015.

I've loved all the books by Susan Howatch. Pillars of the Earth, by Ken Follett, has been my very favorite novel. I don't go to movies or watch them on TV. I listen to NPR while driving.
I don't listen to most music, though I love to sing. I'm an alto in the two singing groups I belong to.
Greek, Japanese, and Indian are my favorite cuisines.
Mental stimulation - from conversation, reading, or problem solving.
Stamina, energy, and good health.
Variety and new experiences.

I played the Lumosity games for a while. My subscores put me between the 95.5 and 99 percentiles, and my general score was 97.6 percentile. How about you?
The one thing in the personality graph below that I disagree with is the last item: less friendly. I see myself as very friendly and open to people.
I am unique and untypical.
