“I have an active lifestyle. When I want to take a break from my 9 to 5 routine, I go outside to play. I keep myself in relatively good shape and often select my vacations to engage in outdoor activities like hiking, sailing, kayaking, where I can at the same time discover new places, challenge my body and have a great time.”

“I am not a typical tourist. I enjoy meeting new people and discovering new cultures and customs. I like walking and participating in outdoor activities but I’ll admit it, I prefer my comforts, less strenuous and demanding exercise... and I like my rum at the end of the day.”

“I am a modern-day explorer. When I put on my Indiana Jones’ hat, nothing can stop me. I like to explore the unknown, go places few have gone, see the unseen, I don't care if I don't know where or when I am going to eat or sleep. I am a team player and I can adapt to and endure almost anything.”
