About AlexG

I'm taking some time off. Somehow it's not the same anymore, and I also noticed that many people who were here from the start (back in '99) are not writing or writing once in a long while. I used to be a Travel "expert" and then "advisor." Ha ha. I guess one's qualifications evaporate with lack of writing. Anyway, perhaps I'll write something soon.

"Strange travel suggestions are dancing lessons from God"--Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

"Travel hasn’t satisfied an appetite. It has created one"--Alby Mangels

I've been around for 28 years. Born in Odessa, Ukraine. In the States since 1991. A graduate of Binghamton University. I'm a market researcher, living and working in New York.

Travel is my passion. I absolutely love visiting new places, meeting different people, and learning new things. I have a big wall world map hanging over my workdesk as a constant reminder that there is more to life than waking up, going to work, getting home, eating dinner, watching TV and going back to sleep. It's too bad that there are so many places in the world I want to visit and so little time do that. But, I'm making progress. I particularly enjoy backpacking in Europe. Of all the places that I have visited, Vienna remains my favorite city, Gimmelwald my favorite village and Switzerland my favorite country.

I love all sports, especially soccer (you know, I was born in Europe), and I follow closely European leagues, especially English. Go Arsenal!

I'm always up for outdoor activities--skiing, whitewater rafting, caving, paintballing, rock climbing, etc--in other words, any adrenaline-pumping experience.

Generally, I have a wide variety of interests, and my epinions.com reviews reflect that. You can always e-mail me if you have any specific questions about any of my reviews, and I'll be glad to help you.
