I agree that a new section is needed.

BTW a solo cruiser, and fellow auditor, I met on the Statendam last year has done a book about Spontaneous Tourism. Seems there is a subset of us solo world travellers that are partial to going where the wind blows us. Author James 'Jamie' is about to make a weekend trip to Israel, a few weeks back I did a day trip (26 hours) to Maui, and my brother is always travelling somewhere around the globe on short notice. The common thread is that we have travelled so much in our lives on short business trips that we can be very efficient as tourists with compressed travel times. Some of us have perfected the art of living out of a suitcase and always have one packed and ready.

Spontaneous traveller, spontaneous tourist, escape artist, last minute traveller, adventurer, explorer - there are alot of names for us folks who seem to cluster in sports like motorcycling, mountain biking, climbing, bungi, scuba diving, sky diving and the like...

Just a thought.
